PUBG is getting a sequel – but this one is only for mobiles. Called PUBG: New State, the newly unveiled title already has a trailer, which you can see below, and it’s slated to launch in 2021 on Android and iOS.
There’s a lot going on in the trailer, but the key points include a more futuristic setting, with the game set in 2051. This means you also have access to upgraded tech, like drones, combat shields. deployables and shiny new weapons. And speaking of the setting, PUBG: New State is also set on a new map called Troi.
There are also some new vehicles and a few new features, such as weapon customization in the game. Aside from these changes, it still looks a lot like the PUBG experience you know and probably love if you read this, the biggest change probably being the new card.
That said, you can expect visual improvements as well, with manufacturers promising “ ultra-realistic graphics that push the boundaries of mobile gaming. ”
It should also be noted that PUBG: New State is apparently developed by PUGB Studio (the creator of the original PC hit), unlike PUBG Mobile, which was managed by Tencent.
