nCore's FAU-G to be launched as an 'Atmanirbhar' alternative to PUBG Mobile.
Earlier this week the Indian Government banned 118 Chinese apps which included India's favourite mobile shooter, PUBG Mobile. The ban had a great impact on the Chinese mammoth Tencent and on India's gaming Industry.
Merely 48 hours later, a new mobile shooter called FAU-G or Fearless And United: Guards was announced. It is being developed by nCore games, a company based in Banglore, under the mentor-ship of Bollywood star Akshay Kumar.
FAU-G is developed in response to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Atmanirbhar App campaigner
In a statement to the Indian Express, Vishal Gondal the CEO of GOQii said even though FAU-G was announced just two days after the ban of PUB-G Mobile, the ban was coincidental. They have been developing the app since May-June in response to Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Atmanirbhar App Campaigner.
Akshay Kumar gave a brief description about the game in an Instagram post, he said that FAU-G (Fearless And United - Guards) is in line with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vision for an ‘aatmanirbhar (self-reliant)’ India.
“Supporting PM @narendramodi’s Atma Nirbhar movement, proud to present a multiplayer action game, Fearless And United - Guards FAU-G. Besides entertainment, players will also learn about the sacrifices of our soldiers. 20% of the net revenue generated will be donated to #BharatKeVeer Trust. #FAUG @vishygo #nCoreGames,” his post read.
The first level of the game is set in the Galwan area of eastern Ladakh, where Indian and Chinese troops were engaged in a violent face-off in June. Twenty Indian soldiers died in the clash.
