Set in 2051, PUBG: New State is a free-to-play battle royale game, created to provide a near-future experience on mobile devices. The alpha test will commence in the only announced map, Troi. The game features multiple new futuristic vehicles to drive around in and customize weapons during a match.
PUBG: NEW STATE’s Second Alpha Test will be focused on measuring an early version of the game’s performance, server and network stability, and in-development gameplay systems. The feedback we receive during the Alpha Test will help ensure we meet the expectations of the community when PUBG: NEW STATE is released later this year. During the Alpha Test, players will be able to drop into Troi, a futuristic 8×8 map, where they will be able to experience distinct gameplay features in advance of launch and explore a section of the PUBG universe in 2051.
The official release date is yet to be announced by Krafton itself, however, October 8th seems plausible as the game developer is preparing for its second Alpha Test that will launch in the coming week ahead.
