The gameplay trailer for the much-awaited homegrown and futuristic battle royale video game, Indus, is finally here just in time for Republic Day. The 1.20-minute clip is as desi as it can get, with background music that blends Indian classical music with futuristic hip-hop – and a whole lot of Indian characters, which Indus likes to call Paragons. Graphics will look vaguely familiar to gamers, with several elements that appear inspired by titles like Apex Legends and Valorant.
Behind the title is SuperGaming, the Pune-based gaming studio, which says that its goal is to put India on the global gaming map. To accomplish this, the developer has released a series of high-impact takeovers across the biggest locations in London. A similar initiative was seen last year on August 15, 2022, when SuperGaming launched the previous trailer in New York’s Times Square.
What is Indus?
For the non-gamers out there who are not familiar with this gaming genre, battle royale is a mode where a large number of players (usually around 100), parachute onto a virtual map to fight until there’s just one person left standing. Because of how engaging it is, battle royale has become something of a craze lately, with free-to-play titles like Fortnite, PUBG, and Apex Legends seeing tremendous popularity.
