Not to forget Krafton has also come up with a new game last month, the PUBG: New State. Set in 2051, this game surely gives the vibe of Call of Duty Black ops 3 and 4. This game will also allow players to customize/modify their weapons within the match which sounds very similar to Apex Legends.
New State marks the third battle royale game under the PUBG umbrella — although, unlike its mobile counterpart PUBG Mobile, PUBG: New State will be developed by PUBG Studio, the company behind Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds, the PC and console version of the original game.
The pre-registration of New State has been made live on the Google Play Store. However, this game will not be available in India due to the PUBG Mobile ban. The New State game will be available for Android 6.0 or higher version.
