Set in the year 2051, PUBG New State is described as a “full, uncompromised battle royale game” and one of the “most realistic and technically advanced mobile games to date.”
“PUBG: New State inherits the core of the PUBG IP and will have a competitiveness in and of itself on the global market,” Krafton CEO CH Kim said. “Krafton will continue to produce games that will be enjoyed by players across the world. We’re committed to offering an expanded experience based on the belief that games will become the most powerful type of media.”
