PUBG Mobile’s return in India is still uncertain, but its long-awaited homegrown rival FAU-G finally has a release date. Yes, Fearless and United Guards (FAU-G) will finally arrive on your mobile devices later this month. The game developer not only confirmed the release date for FAU-G but also shared a new cinematic video today. It provides us a closer look at this gameplay, combat styles, also weapons.
FAU-G release date announced
In an official tweet, developer nCore Games has confirmed that FAU-G will launch in India on January 26, 2021. The company is known to choose auspicious days to tease the game. And well, the launch of the game will coincide with Republic Day in the country. You can check the official announcement right here:
The release date reveal is accompanied by a new cinematic video, which gives us another look at the game. This trailer shows FAU-G commandos attacking enemies trying to enter the country at LAC (Line of Royal Control) in Ladakh. This is probably the “first mission of the game”, which is said to be based on the skirmish between the Indian and Chinese forces in the Galway Valley. It resulted in the martyrdom of 20 soldiers and this game is a way of showing our respect to these brave men.
Game and combat details
In the teaser video above, we also get a first taste of the match at FAU-G. You will not only fight enemies (we are talking about close combat) but you will also be able to use clubs (as shown below) and even firearms. You can see the soldiers wearing what looks like AK-47s in the video. We’ve also got a first look at the home screen UI, which shows your character front and center. There also appear to be two types of currency in the game.
Also, if you didn’t already know, FAU-G is not a battle royale game like PUBG. If you are seeing to fight another real player, you are wrong. However, a Battle Royale mode is said to be in the works and will arrive at a later date.
We got our first official look at FAU-G on the occasion of Dusshera, with the opening of Android pre-registration in Gurupurab at the end of November. The game has already earned over 1 million pre-registrations. It will initially be available on Android devices, with an iOS release scheduled for sometime in the future.
