The long-awaited gameplay trailer for Indus, a homegrown and futuristic battle royale video game, has arrived just in time for Republic Day. The 1.20-minute clip is as desi as it gets, with background music that combines Indian classical music with futuristic hip-hop – and a slew of Indian characters known as Paragons. Gamers will recognize the graphics, which appear to be inspired by titles such as Apex Legends and Valorant.
SuperGaming, a Pune-based gaming studio, is behind the title, intending to put India on the global gaming map. To accomplish this, the developer has launched a series of high-impact takeovers in London’s most prominent locations. On August 15, 2022, SuperGaming launched the previous trailer in New York Times Square in a similar initiative.
Indus’ island map, Virlok, is featured in the trailer, and it has a futuristic theme with architecture based on Indian culture and lush greenery.
Weapons, character skins (Paragons), and traversal are also featured. Like many other battle royale games, this game also allows players to play in both third-person and first-person perspectives, though it’s unclear whether players will be able to switch between the two mid-game or if the two will have separate modes.
Indus pre-registration is now available on the Google Play Store for Android. iOS registrations will also be available soon.
