While details regarding the game aren't fully available, it is suggested that it won't come with a battle royale mode and will a third-person game without any guns for an authentic feel to it. Although a battle royale might be included later on. While it is expected to be a single-player and a multi-player game and involve maps, it might not be similar to PUBG Mobile or any other battle royale game available.
FAU:G has been also developed under the mentorship of popular Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar. FAU:G is expected to be a PUBG Mobile competitor and its Indian alternative. However, Vishal Gondal, nCore Games' co-founder suggested that it is not the case and has been under development for months before the PUBG ban.
To recall, the Indian Government, in September, banned PUBG Mobile, PUBG Mobile Lite and 116 Chinese apps due to security and privacy issues. The ban followed a previous ban on more than 100 Chinese apps due to the same reason.
