Two days after the government declared a decision to ban PUBG MOBILE, a wildly mainstream online multiplayer shooting game, alongside more than 100 Chinese applications in the midst of restored pressure at the border, a home-developed contender called FAU-G was uncovered by Bollywood star Akshay Kumar.
Being published by Bengaluru-based nCore games which counts Indian gaming industry veteran Vishal Gondal as an investor, FAU-G is short for Fearless and United-Guards and has pledged to donate 20 per cent of its revenue to the government’s fund for paramilitary forces called Bharat Ke Veer set up after the 2019 Pulwama terror attack.
Now, to encourage Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Atma Nirbhar Bharat Campaign, Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar on Friday unveiled a royal battle game FAU-G.

Akshay Kumar says, “For youngsters in India, gaming is becoming an important form of entertainment. With FAU-G, I’m hoping that as they play the game they will learn about the sacrifices of our soldiers and also contribute to the families of the martyrs; and with this each one of us has the ability to support PM Modi’s vision of Atma Nirbhar ”
The game is based on real scenarios encountered by the Indian Security Forces to deal with both domestic and foreign threats. The game is expected to launch at the end of October with its first-level set in the Galwan Valley backdrop followed by third-person shooting gameplay in the subsequent releases. The game will be available on the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store.
