While there are plenty of gamers out these who feel that FAU-G will not be able to meet the expectations of gamers in India, optimists seem to have bestowed their faith in the India-made mobile game and feel that it will give a stiff challenge to PUBG Mobile.

Though the official release date of the game is out, we still have no information about the gameplay and what FAU-G will offer in terms of graphics. Till now the developers have only released cinematic game trailers that show Indian soldiers brawling with enemies while the recent trailer shows gunfighting in some parts.
There is still a lot of ambiguity around the game and how it will be received by the gaming community in India.
The fact that PUBG Mobile still remains banned in India with no news when the Indian version of PUBG Mobile will be launched, it looks like smooth sailing for FAU-G in the days to come.
