Fearless and United Guards by nCore Games or FAU-G, India’s most anticipated mobile action game, launches tomorrow on the 72nd Republic Day in India on January 26th. The game recently surpassed 5 million registrations on the Google Play Store, with a million people registering just in the last week.
“FAU-G tries to portray the life of an Indian soldier and how Faujis fight for us on the border, ”said Vishal Gondal, CEO and co-founder of nCore Games, in a call to socialmediagossips.com. He also talked about the game’s first episode, which is based on the Galwan Valley in Ladakh, adding that FAU-G will be very different from any other action game, so players won’t just be able to follow in the footsteps of Indian soldiers, but also contribute to them.
Why Galwan Valley?
“When you look at the action game genre, they follow a theme,” explained Gondal, noting how popular titles like the Call of Duty franchise were based on themes that had an emotional connection with local audiences. However, the Indian audience has no such connection. “I think if we have to make a game out of India we have to base it on Indian themes and if you look at Indian themes we have all seen Galwan Valley and what happened,” he added.
Gondal revealed that FAU-G could incorporate many of India’s previous historic border collisions into future episode stories such as the Kargil incident, the 1971 India-Pakistan war and the 2016 surgical interventions. It will be interesting to see how newer play styles are implemented with these storylines.
A battle royale mode on the maps
Regarding the addition of a Battle Royale mode in the future, Gondal said, “As soon as we start getting the data from consumers and what elements they like, we will continue to develop the game. Based on feedback, different modes like a PvP mode (Player vs Player) and a Battle Royale mode may come to the game in the next few months. “
He also suggested that gradually adding game elements would ensure a better experience for players and reduce the chance of a server problem. “We’re in no hurry. We want to take things at a nice, slow pace and make a better product, ”he added.
With FAU-G you can make a contribution to the Indian army
“We are also donating 20 percent of the game’s proceeds to the ‘Bharat ke Veer’ foundation, which also enables Indians to make a positive contribution to the army,” said Gondal. Every in-app purchase that players make contributes to the foundation.
FAU-G is also completely free to play, while in-game purchases allow users to customize their player avatars with skins and other elements. With the game, players can also buy official FAU-G goods themselves via the app. This includes t-shirts, hoodies, and more.
Support for older low-end phones
FAU-G will also be available for older Android devices, and phones running Android 8 (Oreo) or higher can run the game. Given that the hardware on phones running Android Oreo had lower specs compared to modern phones, it can be assumed that most Android phones today can run FAU-G, even if they’re not flagship devices.
FAU-G attaches great importance to data protection
FAU-G will be available from tomorrow, January 26th, for all Android phones with Android 8 and higher in the Google Play Store. Players can play the game’s story mode, which has an emphasis on melee and hand weapons. Availability on iOS devices has not yet been confirmed, but we can assume that FAU-G will be available in the iOS App Store in the next few months.
