The multi-player game titled 'FAU-G: Fearless and United Guards' aims to provide an Indian alternative to PUBG Mobile that has been recently banned in India along with 117 more apps.
The government banned the multiplayer action game PUBG on September 2 and it has been pulled out from both Google Play Store and Apple App Store in India following the directive from the Indian government.
Meanwhile, millions of Indians are going through a nail-bitig phase, waiting for the much-anticipated launch of PUBG Mobile India. Though several media reports have claimed that PUBG will be launched by the first week of December, it seems highly unlikely as the Centre is yet to give permission to PUBG Corporation to launch the game in the Indian market.
Media reports said that PUBG Mobile India's new version will have Rs 6 crore prize pool with minimum salary ranging from 40,000 to Rs 2 Lakh for tier 1 teams.
Interestingly, the APK version of PUBG Mobile India was released in the last week of November on the official website of the company for a couple of hours. The APK version was available for download but the gamers faced difficulties in downloading it. An APK version for some Android users was also released.
