FAU:G: Akshay Kumar to launch multiplayer action game based on Indian security forces
Expected to launch in October, the game’s first-level is set in the Galwan Valley backdrop
Akshay Kumar has mentored an upcoming multiplayer action game titled Fearless and United: Guards (FAU:G). Expected to launch in October, the game is based on real scenarios encountered by Indian security forces to deal with domestic and foreign threats. The game’s first-level is set in the Galwan Valley backdrop followed by third-person shooting gameplay in subsequent releases. It will be available on the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store.
According to a statement, 20 per cent of its net proceeds will be donated to the Bharat Ke Veer Trust. The game will be launched by a Bengaluru-based gaming publisher. The announcement comes two days after a ban on 118 additional Chinese apps in India, including PUBG Mobile.
“For youngsters in India, gaming is becoming an important form of entertainment,” Akshay said. “With FAU:G, I’m hoping that as they play the game they will learn about the sacrifices of our soldiers and also contribute to the families of the martyrs; and with this each one of us has the ability to support PM Modi’s vision of Atma Nirbhar.”
Founder and Chairman of the gaming publisher, Vishal Gondal, says, “It is a matter of great pride to respond to PM Modi’s call and present the world a world-class game, which will not only help gamers in a virtual setting fight the forces of evil; but also positively contribute to nation-building by supporting our martyrs.”
Dayanidhi MG, co-founder and CEO, adds, “We have in-depth experience in different genres specially mid-core games. We managed genre-defining MOBA games like Vainglory of SuperEvil Megacorp for the worldwide audience. We have also worked with global studios like Rovio. We have an experienced team and is constantly expanding to bring the best talent together to create games that Indian gamers can relate to while playing.”
