FAUG launch date in India

The FAUG launch in India on January 26th, which is the 72nd Republic Day of the country. Bengaluru-based publisher nCore Games was initially supposed to launch the game last year in November, but that didn’t happen due to some unknown reasons. Now, that the game is all set to release, users will be able to download it on their devices and play. You can also pre-register for the game.

Following the FAUG launch in India, the game will be available for download via Google Play Store and the official website. The official site will offer FAUG game download APK for Android that would require a manual installation. However, the game is design for mid-range and premium smartphones — budget phones will not have the resources needed to run the game. The company has said a Lite version of the game for low-end devices can be developed if it sees demand for the same.

FAU-G gameplay will not be the same as that of PUBG. It’ll not feature Battle Royale gameplay modes, at least at the time of the launch, where users are put together randomly in the gameplay area to pit against each other for survival. FAUG will instead focus on close combat skills and melee action with linear missions and episodes that will progress through the story. The first episode of the FAUG game series is said to be based on India’s armed conflict against China at the Galwan Valley border initially. This was shown in the teasers that the company has released so far.

Is FAUG a PUBG alternative? 

While FAUG’s theme seems to be in line with PUBG, the game will be pretty different from the world’s most popular mobile game. As per updates from the developers, FAU-G is an action game, whereas PUBG comes with a battle royale gameplay. FAUG’s developers have also added that the game is not the competitor to PUBG Mobile.
