The Indian government banned 118 other Chinese apps, including PUBG Mobile, a couple of days ago. Presently, in an attempt to fill the Miramar-sized hole in our lives, it looks that PUBG clones are already on their way. Actor Akshay Kumar took to Twitter today to share news about an upcoming game called “FAU-G.”
This game comes from the Indian publisher nCore games, in response to Prime Minister Modi’s call for “AtmaNirbhar Apps“. However, the simple truth that people like to play PUBG-like games is more likely, and FAU-G is trying to capitalize on PUBG‘s forced leave of absence in the country.
Apparently, the game will also serve as a kind of educational tool, teaching players about the sacrifices of the soldiers of the Indian defense services. Additionally, 20% of the revenue generated by the game will be donated to the Bharat Ke Veer trust.
Not enough is known about the game as of now. All we’ve seen about the next game is a poster, and that rather silly name “Fearless and United Guards.” Hopefully, we will learn more about the game in the coming days.
However, I must admit that it is difficult to judge whether or not the game will be able to gain traction in a market that is currently dominated by Fortnite and Call of Duty: Mobile. Hopefully, the developers at nCore are coming up with something interesting enough for a decent number of people to give this game a try.
