What is FAU-G?
FAU-G, aptly named by Fairless and United Guards, is an action game developed by N Core Games, a Bangalore-based game company in India. It was announced in September 2020, after the Indian government imposed a ban on PUBG mobiles. Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar announced the FAU-G on Twitter, saying it would support the movement for a self-reliant India and “players will also learn about the abandonment of our troops”. He further shared that 20 per cent of the profits earned through the game would be donated to the Bharat Ke Bir Trust.
Vishal Gondal, co-founder of N Core Games, revealed that the first level of FAU-G was based on the Indo-China conflict in the Galvan Valley where Indian troops fought Chinese troops. Then in October Akshay Kumar shared a teaser, which gives a glimpse of the fighting mechanics in our game. Since the game is considered as an Indian alternative to PUBG mobile, it does not seem to be a royal game of mobile war like PUBG.
However, a report from IGN India said that FAU-G will have a story mode when launched and multiplayer and Battle Royale modes will be added later.
When will FAU-G launch?
The FAU-G is scheduled to open in India tomorrow, January 26 (Republic Day). Akshay Kumar shared the release date via a tweet earlier this month. The game was originally scheduled to launch in October last year but did not. N Core Games then announced that FAU-G would launch in November 2020, but that didn’t happen. Now, it’s going to be launched on Republic Day.
Where and how to download FAU-G?
The FAU-G application page went live on Google Play in late November and received pre-registration. Registered players will start receiving download notifications tomorrow. Furthermore, it will be downloaded and installed manually on the compatible device. If you haven’t pre-registered, you can manually download and install the game via Google Play after it launches.

Which games will challenge FAU-G?
