The teaser of FAU-G or Fearless And United-Guards was released by actor Akshay Kumar on Dussehra. The game was announced after the Indian Government, in September, banned PUBG Mobile, PUBG Mobile Lite and 116 Chinese apps due to security and privacy issues.
Taking to Twitter, Akshay said: "Today we celebrate the victory of good over evil, and what better day to celebrate our Fearless and United Guards, our FAU-G! On the auspicious occasion of Dussehra, presenting the #FAUG teaser (sic)."
The one-minute teaser video briefly shows the first level of FAU-G that will be based on Galwan Valley faceoff between India and China.
The game has been developed by Bengaluru-based nCore Games and and backed by Goqii and actor Akshay Kumar. The game makers have already announced that 20 percent of FAU-G's net revenues will be given to the government-funded Bharat Ke Veer initiative.
According to media reports, the game is expected to be a single and multi-player game and involve maps. It may not be similar to PUBG Mobile or any other battle royale game available.
The game is expected to launch on both Android and iOS in November. The game will be free to download but will have in-app purchases.
