The Indian gaming community has high hopes from FAU-G, who they believe can be the perfect alternative to the recently banned PUBG Mobile. The game's announcement resulted in several heated discussions on the internet, and ideas of some fancy gameplay plots.
As if the social media debates were not enough, numerous fake trailers of the game have now surfaced online. We can confirm the fact that no official trailer has been released by the developers yet.
The developers of the game recently cleared a lot of rumours regarding FAU-G's poster being plagiarized. Their tweet clarified that they bought the official license from Shutter Stock.
When will FAU-G release in India?
According to PTI, the multiplayer game is set to release by the end of October. The report also mentioned that the first level of FAU-G is set in the backdrop of Galwan Valley.
The game will be based on real-life scenarios that the Indian Security Forces face while dealing with domestic and foreign threats. The players will be able to team up with each other and fight against evil forces.Published 13 Sep 2020, 11:20 IST
