India’s very own mobile game FAU-G (Fearless and United Guards) developed by nCore Games was released earlier today on the occasion of India’s 72nd Republic Day. Ever since the game was announced there has been a lot of hype surrounding it, mainly due to its nationalistic narrative.
As the game was announced soon after the ban of PUBG in the country citing national security reasons, there have been numerous comparisons between both the games. Despite FAUG developers coming out and stating that they are not here to compete and replace PUBG or any other game for that matter, the comparisons have not stopped by any means.
Face the enemy. Fight for your country. Protect Our Flag. India’s most anticipated action game, Fearless and United Guards: FAU-G takes you to the frontlines and beyond! Start your mission today.

The developers seem to have done a pretty decent job during the extended time they took for completing and releasing the game. While the trailer which was released in October 2020 had miserably failed to impress and indicate something exciting, a first quick look at the game suggests otherwise.
For starters the game provides three different modes – Campaign, Team Deathmatch and Free for All. While only the Campaign mode has been released for now with the other two modes to be released soon, the game does seem interesting for its first release.
Considering the fact that the game has been entirely made in India, the graphics of the game is certainly impressive. The graphics which had failed badly to impress the gamers in the country now seems to be in a different level altogether. Though, you can definitely not compare it with other mobile games like Call of Duty or others, the graphic team surely done a great work.
Leaving aside certain small bugs during the gameplay, the game seems to be working pretty smoothly. The dialogues narrated in the background gives a much needed push to the game.
Comparisons with PUBG
From the first look it seems that the unnecessary comparisons with PUBG will surely go for a toss once more and more people start playing this game. It is a far cry from the games like PUBG or Fortnite of Battle Royale genre.
The fact that the game only has melee weapons for hand to hand combat is one drawback which could prevent it from scaling the heights PUBG reached in the country.
Overall the game does look promising in the first glance and even if PUBG returns anytime soon, FAU-G is here to stay
