One of the most popular genres for Indian mobile gamers is Battle Royale. This is clearly shown by the hype surrounding games like BGMI, Apex Legends Mobile, and Call of Duty Mobile. Games of this nature update their content every season, giving players more incentives to engage with the game regularly. Moreover, the gameplay tends to be quite solid in most cases. While the competition is tough in India for this niche, an Indian-made battle royale game has been creating some hype around itself. This game is called Underworld Gang Wars (UGW). If you’re unfamiliar with the game, this article will give you all the information you need. So, without further ado, let’s hop in and check out the game’s relevant information!
What is Underworld Gang Wars (UGW)?
As stated earlier, Underworld Gang Wars is a battle royale game that will be Made in India and based in Indian cities. Mayhem Studios are developing it, which is a Bengaluru-based studio. Moreover, they have stated that the game will be the first AAA-level game from India, for Indian smartphone owners.
The game will be free-to-play and feature Indian maps such as Ghat, Racecourse, and Mandi. Additionally, Indian vehicles such as Jeep and a Classic 350 will be part of the maps and can be used for commuting to points of interest. Like most other battle royale games, you can team up with other players to form squads. These include duo and 4-person squad play or a solo run. Furthermore, we’re expecting some classic guns to be revealed as well.
The game’s story hasn’t been revealed yet. However, it features two opposing gangs fighting for the control of the island named Dhantara. There’s a river called Maya that divides the island into two halves. Presumably, players will be fighting for control over the river and certain areas of the island. Players can choose their affiliation and fight the rival gang for supremacy. Also, the player with the most kills and significant stats in the game will be crowned “Don of the Era”. Finally, let’s take a look at one of the gang leaders, Boris, the head of the Velvets!
