Dimapur, Dec. 2 (EMN): nCore Games’ FAU-G mobile game got over 1 million pre-registrations in 24 hours with the bulk of the registrations coming from India.

This news was announced by nCore Games via a tweet from its official Twitter page. NCore Games wrote in the tweet, “Thank you for a fantastic response! Highest number of pre-registrations in India in less than 24 hours! 1+ million and counting.”

It is highly likely that the number of registrations will continue to grow in the coming weeks. FAU-G mobile game is being marketed in India as an alternative to PUBG Mobile after the former was banned by the Indian government earlier this year for its alleged ties with China.

Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar announced the highly anticipated game through a tweet from his official Twitter account just days after the ban on PUBG Mobile was announced. Since then, nCore Games have released more than 70 videos on its YouTube channel allowing viewers to watch the progress of the development of the game.

Much to the chagrin of many mobile gamers in India, however, FAU-G is not a battle royale game. It will simply let players play episodes based on high-profile incidents around the country including the Galwan Valley incident. This begs the question of whether the comparisons with PUBG Mobile are justified or not. However, it is possible that a battle royale mode could be added to the game as a future update since the game will probably have support for multiplayer.

Whether FAU-G will be able to emulate the success that PUBG Mobile had in the Indian mobile gaming space is up for debate. However, PUBG Mobile has been working on an epic comeback with PUBG Corporation announcing on November 12, 2020, that it would be releasing an exclusive version of PUBG Mobile called PUBG Mobile India for Indian users. PUBG Mobile has already registered as an Indian company with the ministry of corporate affairs and it seems like PUBG Mobile’s return has become more feasible now than it was a month ago.
