Just to recall FAU-G is an action game developer and published by nCORE Games which is established in Bengaluru. The game was announced by the popular Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar back in September 2020 and hit the Google Play store on January 26th, 2021.

On January 27, 2021, nCORE Games shared a post on its official Twitter handle claiming that GAU-G has acquired the first position in the free games category on Google Play Store with more than 5 million downloads. When the game was up for pre-registrations, it received the same response from the smartphone users. The game was announced just after the ban of PUBG Mobile and PUBG Mobile Lite in India which was one of the most played online games across the country. FAU-G took advantage of the ban and hyped the game among the gaming community in India.

The games come with a story-line and users have to play the campaign mode first. Initially, players have to make their way through the Galwan Valley without any weapons. Instead of firearms, the game has included Clubs, Axes and Pipes. Players have to complete the objectives within the given time. The in-game narration is done in Hindi which seems to be a key factor when it comes to connecting with the Indian players.
