PUBG New State: Basic clarified in five points
PUBG New State is literally new
Unlike previous incremental updates to PUBG Mobile, PUBG New State is actually new — it is not an update. The game is being developed by Krafton and there’s no involvement of Tencent this time. The game has new maps, weapons, vehicles, characters, and a lot.
It’s set in the 2051 PUBG Universe
Despite its “newness”, New State is part of the PUBG universe kickstarted by previous PUBG titles on mobile and PC. The game is set in 2051, which explains the trailer showing electric cars, futuristic helicopters, drones, and weapons. The world, called Troi, seems reminiscent of the one from PUBG Mobile.
Movie-like fighting experience
Noticed the gun recoil and smoother movements in the trailer? Krafton says PUBG New State will bring better gunplay dynamics along with improved weapon customization. FPS fans have a lot to look forward to with the new game.
Gameplay aims for realism
Based on the trailer, the world seems to be active. There are drones and electric vehicles roaming the streets. Cars will run on electric propulsion and so will the motorcycles. We also see a glimpse of Watch Dogs: Legion-inspired drones helping snipers. Some futuristic gadgets from the Call of Duty universe also make it to New State. The red zone now sees actual missiles being dropped out of the sky instead of random explosions happening.
Look at the graphics!
The 1.0 update on PUBG Mobile brought decent texture upgrades but PUBG New State seems set to push modern mobile devices. Based on the trailer, the graphics in PUBG New State look similar to PUBG Lite for PC. The lighting is improved, the special effects are akin to PC version, and the textures have seen a massive uplift.
