The iOS version has been capped with an age limit of 17 years. Regardless of the pre-registration status, users below the age of 17 will not be able to download the game. In the testing phase, the game was available for users aged over 12 years. In its blog, Krafton stated, “A situation beyond our control developed that required the age rating of PUBG: NEW STATE on the App Store to be changed to 17 and up. This means that any Survivors under the age of 17 will not be able to access or play the game, regardless of whether or not they pre-ordered.”
The PUBG New State battle royale game is set up in the year 2051 with nuanced gameplay elements, in comparison to Battlegrounds Mobile India and PUBG Mobile. The game comes with enhanced graphics and many more futuristic additions to the gameplay.
While the game was in beta testing in 28 countries for a long period, the stable version of the app is still riddled with bugs. The Krafton website has also listed a few of the observable bugs which include issues in gameplay elements, settings, lobby and others.
The PUBG New State is aiming to provide the gameplay standards typically offered by the PC version of the game. While the minimum requirements for the game can also be sufficed by entry-level smartphones the experience will vary.
