As India continues its ban on Chinese apps and games, India-made alternatives have started to get more attention. Among these has been the famed FAU-G. Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar had announced Fearless and United Guides, a.k.a. FAU-G, back in September. Ever since then, there have been discussions about the game, and anticipation of its release. Heck, even fake apps with the game’s name started appearing on the Google Play Store recently.
nCore, a Bangalore-based game developer is behind FAU-G. After a couple of months after the announcement, FAU-G pre-registrations have now started in India, on the Google Play Store, with a sneak peek into the graphics.
FAU-G India Pre-Registrations Begin on Google Play Store, First Look at Graphics
FAU-G aims to honour the Indian Army, and that has driven a lot of hype around the game. The first look at graphics shows us cel-shaded animations, and if the game uses these in actual gameplay and not just the cutscenes, it will be a fresh experience for an Indian title.
Here’s the official synopsis of the game:
“High up on the peaks at India’s northern border, an elite fighting group protects the nation’s pride and sovereignty. It’s a daunting task, for the most courageous: The Fearless and United Guards.
Join a special unit of FAU-G commandos on patrol in dangerous border territory. Come face-to-face with India’s enemies as you engage with hostile invaders on Indian soil. Fight for survival against the unforgiving terrain and the implacable enemy. Fill the shoes of a patriotic soldier and experience the bravery, brotherhood, and sacrifice of the men guarding the country’s borders.
FAU-G is a proudly made in India project from nCore Games that pays tribute to the heroes of our nation’s armed forces. Based on real-world scenarios, FAU-G brings to life the thrill and adrenaline of a life spent guarding India’s borders.”
The developers, nCore, took to Twitter to announce this news:
On the auspicious occasion of Gurupurab, we are starting the pre-registrations of FAU-G: Fearless And United Guards.
