FAU-G gets more than 1 million registrations on Google Play Store in just 3 days
FAU-G, the Indian alternative to PUBG Mobile, went live with its registrations on November 30. Within three days, the game has managed to cross one million pre-registrations on the Google Play Store. nCore Games, the developers of FAU-G, took to Twitter to make the announcement.
Thank you for a fantastic response! Highest number of pre-registrations in India in less than 24 hours!— nCORE Games (@nCore_games) December 2, 2020

FAU-G was announced just after the Indian government banned PUBG Mobile in India and the game was expected to launch in October. Things were pushed back to November and come December, all we have is a registration link for the game on the Google Play Store. The developers have made no announcements about when the game is going to be launched or when it will be available on iOS.
However, since the registration link is live, the launch should not be too far away. Everyone who has pre-registered for FAU-G will get a push notification when the game is ready for download and eligible devices will have the game automatically downloaded and installed.
Some gamers have taken to social media to complain that they have not been able to register for the game though. Many also posted screenshots of device incompatibility messages stated that the device they were using was not compatible with this version. Now, the FAU-G’s compatibility details are not listed on the Google Play Store page so there is really no way to check if your device is compatible or not.
FAU-G is going to be going head-to-head with PUBG Mobile India when the game launches here. According to a recent report by game sharing community, TapTap, PUBG Mobile India had over 200,000 pre-registrations requests, while FAU-G reportedly had only about 60,000.
While the interest in PUBG Mobile India is definitely more than the interest gamers have in FAU-G, the delay the former is facing may play to FAU-G’s advantage if they can roll out the game without glitches.
