FAU-G teaser out: Not even close to PUBG, say gamers

Mobile gamers, who were excited for an Indian alternative to PUBG, find FAU-G not worth the wait

After PUBG was banned in India, gamers had been waiting for its Indian alternative. But after nCore launched the teaser of the upcoming multiplayer game FAU-G, many players seemed disappointed.

“The graphics of the game need a great amount of improvement,” said Rishith Reddy, a 19-year-old engineering student from Kurnool who is also an avid mobile and PC gamer. He believes that game play and regular updates are the deciding factors for any game’s success and graphics can be overlooked if developers promise active services to improvise the game. “If this is just another Battle Royale game, it might not even have a lucrative run,” added Reddy.

A teaser for the upcoming multiplayer game FAU-G was released on October 25, 2020 by actor Akshay Kumar on Twitter.

Being promoted as a product of Aatmanirbhar Bharat, FAU-G’s teaser has not been received well. “The teaser does not reveal the game’s potential,” said Robin DSouza, a 20-year-old, engineering student and gaming enthusiast from Mangalore. “Be it the looks or the story, the game doesn’t seem like it belongs in the battle royale game category that PUBG Mobile stood in.”

FAU-G’s 20% net revenue will be donated to ‘Bharat Ke Veer Trust’ that supports martyrs’ families.

Players believe the game can only ride on the Aatmanirbhar Bharat bandwagon for success. “The game looks promising and interesting for a survival game owing to how it was promoted. However, I would not consider it to be a replacement for PUBG as the company claims,” said Devika Chaddha, a 20-year-old former PUBG Mobile player from Lucknow.

All mobile gamers expect to see more development in the game before it releases, which nCore claims will be in November.

“Finding a competition for a top-ranking mobile game is not easy. The only selling proposition that can attract players is the anti-China sentiment and feeling of patriotism associated with the Indian Army,” said Reddy. “Except for Call of Duty Mobile by Activision, we haven’t really seen anything come remotely close to the popularity of PUBG Mobile.”
