FAU-G launch date is January 26, PUBG Mobile rival coming on Republic Day

FAU-G, the hotly-anticipated rival to the PUBG Mobile battle royale, is releasing on India’s Republic Day, January 26. Closely associated with the upcoming game, which is claimed to have been developed in India, Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar dropped the first trailer of FAU-G. The trailer is full of action based on snowy locations in Ladakh. There is a theme song for the game in Punjabi and Hindi that can lift your mood. However, there is violence aplenty in the game -- something that is believed to have been one of the reasons why PUBG Mobile was banned in India.

The 1 minute 38 seconds long FAU-G trailer, now available on Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter shows players draped in the Indian Army uniform, engaging in the battle with enemies. Now, the theme of the game is heavily inspired by the border clash between India and China, which is why we see soldiers fighting off intruders in one of the locations where Indian borders are marked. According to the makers, FAU-G will be a third-person brawler that will have one level based on the Galwan Valley -- the place where the clashes erupted last year. There will be no battle royale mode in the beginning but makers have said it will be introduced through an update later.
