'PUBG: New State' (ALL) Surpasses 10 Million Pre-Registrations

Optimized for mobile play, PUBG: New State will deliver the full battle royale experience straight into players' hands.

Leveraging and adopting the best-in-class gunplay made popular by the original PUBG game, players can expect the same combat experience that is easy to learn, but hard to master. Additionally, thanks to its state-of-the-art Global Illumination rendering technology, the title features graphics that push the limits of mobile gaming so players can immerse themselves in a battlegrounds experience that is realistic and intense, but more importantly, stable and smooth.

In addition to taking the original experience that fans have grown to love, PUBG: New State adds several brand-new features that evolve the genre. With a new in-game weapon customization feature, players can make various weapons their own by obtaining customization kits. These kits will transform weapons in different ways, such as performance enhancements, fire mode selection, and grenade launcher attachments. Players can also enjoy a variety of other new features, including combat rolls, drones, and a futuristic ballistic shield, among other things. Finally, players will also be able to take to the road and explore massive 8x8 open worlds with a variety of new vehicles. 

Set in the near future of 2051, years have passed since the original game. Within this backdrop, players will be dropping into a brand-new battleground called TROI, where they will have the opportunity to discover how the universe has evolved. Filled with various landmarks that have their own distinct characteristics, players will be able to explore a unique environment that features interactable objects, helping them come up with new ways and strategies to dominate the competition. 

Krafton announced that the number of Google Play Store pre-registrations for PUBG: New State have exceeded 10 million.

The recent milestone comes soon after a previous announcement around the game exceeding five million within its first week of pre-registration. Featuring users from over 210 countries, the new milestone was achieved within 43 days of the Google Play Store pre-registrations going live, with Southeast Asia, Americas, the Middle East, Europe and East Asia seeing the highest sign-ups. 

Those eager to join the fight can pre-register today on Google Play (get an exclusive vehicle skin), with App Store pre-orders coming at a later date. Prior to launching PUBG: New State this year, Krafton and PUBG Studio have also announced that they will conduct alpha tests in select countries during the second quarter of 2021. More information will be shared at a later date.

PUBG: New State will launch as a free-to-play experience on Android and iOS in 2021.
