iPhone and iPad users can now download FAU-G from the App Store. The iOS release comes two months after the Android release on January 26 this year. The game has been developed by Bengaluru-based studio nCore Games. FAU-G was originally announced as a response to PUBG Mobile ban in India back in September 2020 but the developers later clarified that the game is not meant to be a replacement for PUBG Mobile and would be completely different from the banned game.
The App Store privacy details for FAU-G state the game collects usage data, contact info, identifiers, diagnostics, user content, and purchase details. It also states that this information has not been verified by Apple. The game is 643MB in sieze and requires iOS 10.0 or later for iPhone users and iPadOS 10.0 or later for those downloading the game on their iPads. It also supports iPod touch with iOS 10.0 or later. Just like on Android, it is free-to-play on iOS as well but comes with in-app purchases that range from Rs. 89 to Rs. 3,599.
In our review, we found that FAU-G lacked content and felt repetitive as there is only one game mode — the single-player campaign. However, nCore Games and Bollywood star Akshay Kumar announced last month that a 5v5 Team Deathmatch mode will be coming to the game soon. No release date was given at the time. There is also a Free for All mode that is yet to be added to FAU-G but there has been no announcement for it yet.
