PUBG: New State Is A Futuristic Battle Royale Game For Mobile

PUBG: New State Is A Futuristic Battle Royale Game For Mobile

If one PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds game wasn't enough to contend with, how about a second game to expand the battle royale family? With PUBG's release in 2017, the game is often overlooked as the one that popularised the battle royale formula. Followed by fellow big hitters like Fortnite and Call of Duty: WarzonePUBG has rightly earned its place as the father of battle royale games. Keen to branch out further, PUBG: New State is putting a spin on the formula.

Taking a leaf out of the book of Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 and Black Ops 4New State is jumping further into the lore of PUBG than we've been before. PUBG Studios announced the upcoming release of New State for Android and iOS through a snazzy trailer. Away from the usual grungy aesthetic of the current PUBG MobileNew State is an altogether shinier affair with some technological advancements. 

 

What is PUBG: New State?

Set in the year 2051, PUBG: New State slots in neatly after the rest of the PUBG games. There are near-future weapons, drones, combat shields, and Cyberpunk-inspired vehicles. The action kicks off on a map called TROI and wastes no time ramping up the high-adrenaline stakes. Added to this, PUBG: New State adds other new features including unique ways to customise weapons with fire-mode selectors and grenade launchers.

Publisher Krafton has promised "massive 8x8 open worlds", that will let you explore with a variety of new vehicles, as well as "interactable objects" that help you overtake the competition. Either way, developers are hyping the graphical capabilites of New State, which will apparently push mobile games more than ever before. 

 

When can you play PUBG: New State?

If you're already sold, pre-registration for PUBG: New State has already started on the Google Play Store, with iOS expected some point soon. There's no official release sate other than some time in 2021. In terms of where you'll be able to play New State, it's due for a worldwide release - excluding China, Vietnam, and India. China replaced the OG PUBG with its own government-approved version, while the game had voice chat removed and the blood censored to blue in Vietnam. Finally, India is still in the midst of its own troubles with the game after the controversy surrounding Tencent publishing the first game. 

There's plenty coming to expand the world of PUBG, meaning New State isn't the only game on the horizon. Krafton is also releasing The Callisto Protocol for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S in 2022. This prison escape game is inspired by the Dead Space series and set in the same narrative canon as PUBG. With alpha testing for PUBG: New State expected in the near future, Krafton and PUBG Studios are on the assault with promoting the next-gen title.
