FAU-G, nCore Games’ forthcoming smartphone title, is set to launch officially on January 26th. Now, the company has told IGN India before the game’s availability that it has gathered over four million pre-registrations, suggesting that the market for the game is very strong.
The game was able to cross the milestone despite being limited to just mid-range and high-end phones at the moment, according to Vishal Gondal, co-founder of nCore Games. This leaves a large number of budget phones used by smartphone gamers.
After seeing the player response, reviews, and demand, nCore Games previously announced that it would release a Lite version of the game for low-end tablets.
Initially, the game was assumed to be a substitute for PUBG Mobile, which is completely blocked by the Indian government, but Gondal quickly clarified that it was neither a replica of PUBG nor an alternative. A co-op game with third-person melee action set in the Galwan Valley is anticipated to be FAU-G. There will also be a first-person viewpoint.
The executive also mentioned that at launch there will not be a Battle Royale mode, but it will be made available throughout the year in the later versions. At present, the developers are said to be focused on developing the first version.
Even though there is no word yet about the PUBG Mobile India release date, the FAU-G India is releasing inches closer. Fans around the country are enthusiastically expecting the latter, hungry for a multiplayer battle royale game.
In September last year, it was banned by the government over national security matters. Since then, PUBG Mobile’s manufacturers have ended their relationship with Tencent Studios of China in India and have made plans to re-enter the region.
MeiTY, however, has confirmed that it has not granted PUBG Mobile any permission to re-launch in India. This considering the already open pre-registration for the game in India.
