Upcoming Features

For any battle royale, maps play a major role. The more insane the Terran is, the more intense the gameplay will be. PUBG: New State comes with several futuristic maps. As the game takes place in 2051, only you can imagine how the future will be.

  • The Troi is a 8 x 8 map, which is a very futuristic town along with suburban living areas as well. There is a town hall, a few restaurants, a shopping mall, and so many other locations that players will find exciting to explore every now and then. Obviously, there will be futuristic vehicles and infrastructure in this Terran.

  • Not to mention the evergreen map, Erangel, has been decorated with a futuristic flavor too. Now you will be seeing new infrastructure, vehicles, places, and more. Erangel will give me more options to tactically eliminate your opponents.
  • Apart from these, there will be two more maps in the game. Both the maps will have futuristic accents and a lot of things to explore.

Gadgets and Gears

PUBG is upgrading with the trend and technology of the world so that players don’t find the game outdated. As PUBG: New State is featuring 2051, you get advanced gadgets and gears along with traditional weapons you see now in the current mobile and pc version.

There will be drones to deliver items, deployable shields, and new weapons. Speaking of drones, you can trace your opponents using drones in PUBG: New State. There are in-game weapon modifications like the dynamic modification mechanisms of Apex Legends.

Take note that, there are new bikes inspired by TRON. Not like traditional bikes rather actual futuristic bikes. There will be several sci-fi-designed vehicles as well.

Graphics and Sound

PUBG PC and PUBG Mobile have quite a difference when it comes to the graphics section. Developers promised that PUBG: New State’s graphics will be more like PUBG PC, if not better. That implies ultra-realistic graphics, global illumination, auto exposer, auto instancing, and so on.

PUBG Mobile: New State will be different from other versions of PUBG. Damages, explosions, destructions, gun firing, and everything else are now reality-based. Every step you take can be an advantage to your enemies if you are not paying attention around you.

You have to be strategic to eliminate your opponents in this game because the game is not just firing to the enemies to eliminate anymore. There will be combat rolls where you can pick your special character with special combat abilities as well.

There are weapons, gadgets, defense systems, and so on that can be in your favor if you choose to use them wisely. Otherwise, an advantage for the opponents to eliminate you without you even noticing.

Probably, you can team up with opponents as shown in the trailer. Suppose, someone on your team is eliminated or you are a team of three and there is another player who is either alone or lost his teammates. You guys can team up in a running match.

As per the trailer, there might be a chance of respawning. Like Call of Duty: Mobile Season 3, you can use a card in specific points to get back your eliminated teammate.
