After months of teasing, India’s homegrown PUBG mobile alternative , FAU-G is all set to release in the country on 26th January, which is also India’s Republic Day. The pre-registration started late in November 2020 and the game has gained more than 4 million registrations until today.
FAU-G or Fearless and United Guards have seen an overwhelming response from the fans. The game is backed by popular Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar and is being promoted under PM Narendra Modi’s “Atmanirbhar Bharat” campaign, which has emphasized on getting vocal for local products and services.
If you’ve been among those eagerly waiting for the game to launch in India, we’ve got some help. Even though you can’t download the game at the time of writing this article, the procedure of downloading the game on any Android device remains the same.
Here’s how to download FAU-G on Android
Downloading FAU-G is like downloading any other app from the Google Play Store. The game will be available on Play Store on 26th January, so this method will only work once the game is released.
Go to Google Play Store
Search for FAU-G and click on “FAU-G: Fearless and United Guards” by developer Studio nCore. Makes sure you check for the developer as there are tons of clones that might confuse you.
From the FAU-G’s Play Store listing page, locate and click on the Install button.
If you have already pre-registered for the game, you will be notified when the game goes live. Users who have selected the option to install the game as it gets available while pre-registering do not need to follow these steps. Users running Android OS version older than 8 may not be able to install the game.
What we know about FAU-G
The details about the game are still scarce but we now know that the game will not offer a battle royale gameplay like PUBG Mobile. It will rather be a single-player level-based mission game that aims to focus on the exploits of the Indian Army in various theatres of battle.
However, the only level confirmed as of now is the “Galwan” level which is based on the clash that happened between the Indian and Chinese forces in the Galwan Valley in Ladakh. The game is said to have an increased focus on melee combat as shown in the teaser .
