The FAUG game download APK (android application packaging) will be available only after the official release of the game, just like many other applications and games. FAU-G was announced by Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar after the government banned PUBG in September as part of the second round of bans on Chinese apps. The government banned the South Korea-based PUBG game citing security reasons in September.
In its initial version, FAU-G will not feature the battle royale mode and will likely have the Galwan valley mode available for both single player and multiplayer versions.
FAU-G mobile is based on the Indo-China clashes that happened in Ladakh. The upcoming game will try to emulate real-life army combat situations like the Galwan valley incident with accuracy and will have brawler gameplay mechanics with the use of melee weapons.
