Everyone who was devastated after the PUBG ban, can rejoice. An India only version of PUBG will be releasing this June. After the ban on the game by the Indian Government, no other game of that magnitude and intensity was developed. PUBG had reached a stage from where removing/banning it would have impacted the world, not only in India.
After the Government banned the game, a new game was announced, named FAUG, developed under the Government’s resources and with the help of actor Akshay Kumar. The game was launched on Republic Day this year, but it didn’t live up to the expectations and the hype that it got. The game crashed on its first day itself, as it couldn’t handle the number of people who joined it. They didn’t expect such a massive response to the game, but they failed to live up to their potential. This has led to the decline of that particular game in general, and mobile gaming in India has also seen a devastating fall.
PUBG has again got a lot of hype in India, and only time will tell whether this game can prove to live up to the expectations that have risen, or will it be a failure of a game mode like FAUG.
