Last month, due to the escalation of the border conflict between India and China, the Indian government has banned PUBG Mobile along with 117 other Chinese-owned games and applications. As PUBG Mobile is the most popular video game in India at the time, fans were left without anything to play and have to look for alternatives.


And to the surprise of everyone, actor Akshay Kumar announced a game called FAU-G. Many people thought of it as a joke, as "FAU-G" is pretty close to "PUBG" when pronounced... and even the poster of the game was a modified stock picture. However, it turned out FAU-G is an actual game. In this article, we would list out everything available about the game.

What is FAU-G?

FAU-G stands for Fearless and United Guards - it is going to be a multiplayer action game with the goal to "educate" the youth of India about the army of the country and promote its values. According to Akshay Kumar, 20% of the total revenue is going to be given to the Indian Army.


This is not the first time a video game was made to promote the Indian armed forces. Prior to this, there has been one other game named Indian Air Force: A Cut Above made by the airforce for Android and iOS.

About FAU-G's release

According to the announcement, the game is scheduled for release next month. Looks like the game was worked on for quite a long time prior to this, with PUBG Mobile's ban being a convenient time for a reveal. With the theme of the game being India going against China's aggression, maybe it is time to drop China-made PUBG Mobile for real.

The official teaser of FAU-G was posted on Akshay Kumar's Twitter on 'Dusshera' the Indian Festival signifying the victory of good over evil. It features a faceoff between India and China in Galwan Valley and showcases a fearless and bold image of the Indian Armed Forces.
