Due to the recent international relations problems between India and China, India started banning as many Chinese products of any kind as they could.
PUBG (players unknown battleground) is one of the most famous FPP (first-person perspective) shooting games in the world and it has a pretty large number of players from India.
The other day, India once again banned the PUBG mobile and introduced a new game called FAU-G.
Just like PUBG, FAU-G is also an FPP game and was unveiled by Bollywood star Akshay Kumar.
The game itself is published by Bengaluru-based nCore games which counts Indian gaming industry veteran Vishal Gondal as an investor.
According to the reports, FAU-G (Fearless and United-Guards) has pledged to donate 20 percent of its revenue to the government’s fund for paramilitary forces called Bharat Ke Veer set up after the 2019 Pulwama terror attack.
Akshay Kumar tweeted that, the project as playing nicely with the government’s push for self-reliance and indigenous enterprises launched in the wake of the coronavirus crisis dubbed “Atmanirbhar Bharat”.
