The game currently has a story mode, which takes gamers through the whole Galwan Valley incident, with gamers trying to take on the Chinese Army and saving the Indian soldiers that have been captured. The game is quite interesting and educational. Take note, the company at a later date will be adding a battle royale mode and a 5v5 PvP battle mode, which will make the game come closer to being a PUBG Mobile rival.

Another reason for the game’s immense popularity was the fact that it can be wrapped up within a few minutes if played with a fun intention, while at the same time can go on for long if played with a competitive mindset.
Indian Air Force: A Cut Above
If you liked FAUG, then you can also try out Indian Air Force: A Cut Above. The game requires players to take the role of an IAF Air Warrior, who takes on enemies and tries to keep the Indian borders safe for its citizens. The game can be played in a single-player and multiplayer mode, depending on the gamer. The multiplayer mode is further divided into two modes: Squad vs Squad and Free for All. It is quite fun to fly and fight ina fighter jet, with a range of weapons, but at the same time it is pretty difficult also considering players will have to perform a lot of in-air manoeuvres to escape the enemy fire.
