PUBG: New State is coming to iOS and Android, puts a futuristic and dystopian spin on the franchise
The developer behind PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds for PC and console versions of the game has announced PUBG: New State for iOS and Android, as had been rumored. The new take on the franchise will build on all the original features of the game, including the original premise of having 100 players simultaneously take each other on individually or in teams in a battle royale with the winner taking the spoils. The twist is that it is set in the future on a new map called Troi.
According to the limited information presently at hand, the game will take place in 2051 which means more futuristic weapons and other machinery. A trailer for the game is embedded below so you can check out all the live gameplay action that includes drones and deployable combat shields. Naturally, the new weaponry and other technology means gamers will need to adapt their gameplay and tactics if they are going to have a chance to come out on top.
The game promises ‘ultra-realistic graphics that push the limits of mobile gaming’, which seems an accurate description based on the early sneak peak. The open world is a massive 8 km by 8 km which of course narrows as time elapses thanks to the ever shrinking Blue Zone. Gamers will also be able to customize their weapons during the progression of each game in a new approach that sounds similar to Apex Legends. The game also features more futuristic vehicles to help players get around the map and, of course, drive over unsuspecting victims.
PUBG: New State will land on iOS and Android later this year with pre-registration already open for Android and will be coming soon for iOS.
