Here are the 4 features that are set to launch with future FAUG features:
1. Battle Royale Mode
Putting the FAUG vs PUBG comparisons to rest, Vishal Gondal clarified that the game is not a clone of PUBG. But FAUG will feature a battle royale mode in the future. The nCore Games CEO earlier talked about some FAUG features that were in the trailer but not released in the game on launch day. Right now, the game starts with a story mode that allows single-player and co-operative gameplay only.
“The story mode will be the first one. And then we are hoping that over the period of six to eight months intermediately we will be launching more features and updates,” Vishal Gondal said to IGN India.
A battle royale mode is an online multiplayer video game genre that blends the survival, exploration, and scavenging elements of a survival game with last-man-standing gameplay. Battle royale games like PUBG and Fortnite involve dozens to hundreds of players and they can also play in teams. They start with minimal equipment and then must eliminate all other opponents while avoiding being trapped outside of a shrinking safe area, with the winner being the last player or team alive.
FAUG does not have any guns due to the India-China agreement regarding no guns in Galwan Valley. However, nCore Games does plan to add guns to the game at some point. But guns will not be available in Galwan Valley and will be part of some other map.
3. Multiplayer mode
Multiplayer mode is also among some exciting upcoming features in FAUG. nCore Games has confirmed that multiplayer combats are coming soon to the game. It is not clear whether they will be rolled for the Galwan Valley campaigns or restricted to just the battle royale mode.
4. Battle Pass
A battle pass will also be available when FAUG gets an update but it is not there yet. A battle pass is a type of monetisation approach that offers users exclusive rewards like character skins and so on as they reach certain tiers.
