Krafton and PUBG Studio have rolled out a trailer for PUBG: New State, a mobile take on their iconic battle royale, and we really hope it's as dynamic as its trailer.
This, of course, isn't much of a surprise, or at least it isn't an abrupt one, because the two have practically confirmed PUBG 2 and PUBG Mobile 2 a while ago.
PUBG Company will be hoping to replicate the success of PUBG Mobile and its Chinese government-approved counterpart Game for Peace. And their revenue is as good a guarantee of longevity as any, in case you were wondering.
" Drop into PUBG: New State, the newest title by PUBG Studio, the creators of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds.Using diverse weapons and tactics, 100 survivors will face off until only one player or team remains standing. With an ever-shrinking Blue Zone, players must find weapons, vehicles, and consumables to gain the upper hand. Only the strongest will emerge as the ""Lone Survivor"" in this epic showdown", say the blurb on Google Play.
In terms of gameplay, expect to see PUBG battle royale with some visual, UI and gameplay tweaks, which should help bring it into a new modern era.
And, speaking of modern, PUBG Company said the game expands on the big-daddy-PUBG in more ways than one. Namely, it's the year 2051 and anarchy is pitting everyone against everyone.
Rumours suggested that PUBG Company are looking to handle PUBG: New State without Tencent's help, and judging by the credits we've seen so far, they were on point. While the publishing giant and their development studio most certainly did a good job, the Korean studio probably doesn't appreciate being called a Chinese spying app by Indian authorities.
