The game was launched earlier this month and had already received some major upgrades to iron out issues in gameplay and even some major glitches.
Earlier this week, the studio released a new patch aimed at bringing down the instances of cheating, which had plagued the first few versions since launch. Unfortunately, Android players will not be able to play the game without updating to the latest version. The studio has marked it as an “an essential update”. The same update will also be rolled out to players on iOS.
The studio has claimed that they are taking strict actions against cheaters on the platform and this new update is a major step in that direction. Most players on the Android platform will get a prompt to download the update when they start the application.
PUBG New State is a battle royale game based in the future. The studio has also developed a completely new map called Troi which is built on an 8×8 km map. The gameplay elements have also been enhanced graphically. PUBG New State also provides a host of new weapons and gadgets to live-up to the dystopian futuristic world. The studio aims to bring the experience of PUBG New State as close as possible to the original PUBG PC platform.
