FAU-G, an India-made action game for mobile devices, has crossed the four million pre-registration mark on Google Play, after its official release, developer nCore Games has revealed. The game went for pre-registration in late November – after a series of delays and its launch date changed to a schedule that was eventually set for January 26. Pre-registration for FAU-G (also known as Fearless and United Guard) is initially limited to high-end and mid-range Android devices, although nCore Games has plans to increase availability to future low-availability devices. FAU-G is expected to make its way to iPhone and iPad users at the formal launch next week.
Vishal Gondal, co-founder and chairman of NCore Games, has told IGN India that FAU-G has made over four million pre-registrations. “This is with not allowing some devices with low-end to be registered,” he said.
FAU-G surpassed one million pre-registrations in the first 24 hours of its launch on the Google Play store. However, it took a month and a half to cross the four million mark. “I’d say we’ll cross at least five million,” Gondal said. “But at five million, I don’t think there is any other sport, at least in India that kind of pre-registration has been received.”
Announced a few days after the PUBG mobile ban in India in September, FAU-G is designed as an online multiplayer game set in the Galway Valley. The game is coming to Android devices as well as iPhone and iPad models on 26 January. However, pre-registrations are limited to Google Play as the FAU-G App Store is yet to debut.
FAU-G will not initially come with the Battle Royal mode, although it is expected to arrive in a later version. Support for low-end devices also reportedly works and may come soon to help developers download large-scale in the near future.
