In India, the pre-registrations for PUBG: New State had opened up in September, even though globally they had started shortly after the announcement of the game. This was because of the ban that the Government of India had imposed on PUBG due to its link to the Chinese government. Following this, Krafton released a separate version of the game – Battlegrounds Mobile India – for players in India, and only after that, it opened up pre-registrations for PUBG: New State here in September.
The game would be launched as a free-to-play game for mobile users and it would be available in 17 languages across the globe. Notably, India is not one of the 28 countries where the final technical test remains to be conducted.
The game has been set in the year 2051, and it is set to bring a next-generation battle royale experience, with all-new rendering technology and a gunplay system touted to be at the same level as that offered by the PC version of PUBG: Battlegrounds. As per the company, PUBG: New State would also have next-generation graphics.
The game, developed by PUBG Studios, will have new maps as well as better gameplay. It has features that allow weapon customisation, unique player recruitment system and the drone store, among others. PUBG: New State would have four unique maps, including future-set Troi and Erangel. Regular updates will also be pushed out for the game to give new content.
