A brand new PUBG mobile game has been announced, which takes inspiration from the ever expanding the PUBG universe. In a new development for PUBG fans, Krafton Inc has announced the pre-registrations of PUBG: New State along with a trailer.
Set in 2051 in the imaginary city of ‘Troi’, the game looks like a futuristic version of the current PUBG games. The game will be developed and published by Krafton Inc. themselves, unlike Tencent which was the publisher for PUBG Mobile.
As per the official website, PUBG: New State is up for pre-registration on Google Play. But when we tried to pre-register from our phones in India, we were greeted with a message saying that the item is not available in our country. This will be most likely due to the ongoing ban of PUBG Mobile in India by the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY), despite removing Tencent as the publisher for the country. The company had previously tried to launch PUBG Mobile India, the popular battle-royale game’s India exclusive edition, which they say takes care of all data privacy concerns. There looks to be no mention of Tencent in the game trailer or on the website, so there is a small glimmer of hope that the game may see the light of the day in India, although this is all speculation at this point.
PUBG: New State looks like a new take on the original mobile battle-royale game and will continue to have the 100 player lobby. It also takes some inspiration from features available in other games like Apex Legends and Call of Duty: Mobile. From the trailer, we can also see that the game looks to have enhanced weapons with slightly changed optic attachments along with some other futuristic vehicles and drones.
