FAU-G showed up as a “desi” alternative to the now-banned PUBG Mobile a few months ago, and since then has amassed a lot of hype. The game is said to depict the clash between the Indian and Chinese troops in Galwan valley, as well as give players a brief experience into the lives of India’s armed forces. While FAU-G is yet to have a launch date, Studio nCore Pvt Ltd has made the game available for pre-registration on Google Play.

Is FAU-G coming sooner than PUBG Mobile India?
Given that FAU-G is already listed on the Google Play store, it seems developer Studio nCore Pvt Ltd will probably release it in a few weeks’ time. In fact, there are high chances of the game getting a public release closer to the new year. If that’s not on the card, we can all assume to see it go live by January 26, when the game will try to bank on the patriotic sentiments.
Not much is known about FAU-G at the moment. The Google Play listing shows a couple of game art depicting the action you can expect from the game. There seems to be one screenshot from the homescreen of the game wherein a character is shown holding an arm-held weapon. It shows an option to go directly to the game, and another button to visit the store. The latter could be a link to the in-game store.
While FAU-G starts its pre-registration, PUBG Mobile India is yet to see any announcement on this front. The game has long been listed as “coming soon” but there’s no hint on the release date. Some recent reports suggested that the game hasn’t been cleared for a re-release by the Indian government. The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology was recently quoted by an unknown source, saying that game need to get clearance before being re-released after the ban.
