Within two days of the PUBG mobile app ban in India country, we have seen that many Indian game developers have introduced India’s alternative to PUBG or the new Battle Royal game similar to the restricted game. One of the many developers is nCore Games which on Friday announced a new Indian version of PUBG Mobile called FAU-G or Fearless And United: Guards. The game is said to be released soon. nCore Games should reveal a release date and other details about the game in the coming days.
GOQii CEO Vishal Gondal said through an official tweet that FAU-G has been developed in response to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s self-styled app campaigner. Two days after the announcement, the Indian government has banned 118 Chinese apps including PUBG Mobile and PUBG Mobile Lite. Gondal later reported that the team had been actively working on FAU-G from May-June 2020.
In particular, the FAU-G game is being developed under the mentorship of Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar.

Many Indian game developers are using the PUBG mobile ban as an opportunity to bring homegrown alternatives to the game. The same happened with Tiktok when short video platforms were banned in the country. There are apps like Spark, Mitron, Roposo, Moj and many more in the country than Tikkok.
