With the popular PUBG Mobile being taken down from the official Google Play Store and banned in India in the wake of fresh provocation from China in Ladakh, multi-player action game, FAU-G, developed by Bengaluru-headquartered nCORE Games is set to be launched in the country soon.
This development comes soon after the immensely-popular PUBG Mobile was banned in the country along with 117 other Chinese applications.
“Supporting PM @narendramodi’s AtmaNirbhar movement, proud to present an action game,Fearless And United-Guards FAU-G.
Besides entertainment, players will also learn about the sacrifices of our soldiers. 20% of the net revenue generated will be donated to @BharatKeVeer Trust #FAUG,” Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar tweeted on Friday.
The multi-player game is based on scenarios encountered by the Indian defence forces.
The game is likely to launch at the end of October with its first-level set in the backdrop of Galwan Valley, the media has reported. The FAU-G game would be available on the official Google Play Store as well as the Apple App Store.
It is pertinent to note that Bengaluru-based nCore Games had last year raised an undisclosed amount from Vishal Gondal — the founder of wearable devices start-up GOQii.
GOQii also roped in Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar to endorse the brand while the actor is also on the brand’s board as an investor and strategic advisor.
Earlier in June 2019, the Bollywood actor had invested an undisclosed amount in GOQii as part of the local wearable devices maker’s ongoing Series-C funding round.
