As per the description available on Play Store, the battleground of FAU-G will be "India's northern border" where a group is fighting to protect and shield the pride and sovereignty of the country.
Players will get the skin of a "patriotic soldier" and are expected to experience the "bravery, brotherhood, and sacrifice of the men guarding the country’s borders".
The listing also shows a couple of screenshots from the game, giving a glimpse of what the soldier's skin and their weapons will look like.
A teaser of FAU-G was released in October on the occasion of Dussehra. Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar launched a one-minute trailer of the game that showed helicopters landing on a barren strip of land and a fight ensuing between Indian soldiers and the opposing Army.
As per the co-founder of nCore games Vishal Gondal, FAU-G will compete with other international games including PUBG. He added that there is a belief that Indian game developers cannot produce good quality games and at nCore, they want to prove them wrong.
