The free-to-play game comes with in-app purchases and Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar had shared that 20 percent of the revenue will go to the ‘Bharat Ke Veer' trust. FAU-G has been made in India and promoted by Kumar, who also came up with the name. As of now, the game only comes with a short single-player campaign as of now, which we found to be quite repetitive. You can read our full review of FAU-G.
The game has only been launched on Android with no information on when the iOS version will drop. nCore Games says that it will be adding a ‘Free for All' and a 5v5 ‘Team Deathmatch' mode to the game in the future. It has received mixed reviews from players with a lot of them asking for more content and additions to the campaign. nCore Games co-founder Vishal Gondal shared in an interview with NDTV that, down the line, the game will branch out into esports after creating a community, introducing PvP, and introducing battle royale modes.
