Winner Winner Chicken Dinner! The original Battle Royale Playerunknown's Battlegrounds starts into the next round. The South Korean game developer Krafton has announced a new mobile offshoot with a first trailer. PUBG: New State is to appear for Android and iOS devices and will be the successor to PUBG Mobile. Surprisingly, the development of the new shooter falls back on Krafton, formerly Bluehole, and PUBG Studio, who are also responsible for the original PC and console version of the Battle Royale. The billion-dollar Chinese Internet company Tencent launched the first mobile offshoot in 2018. "New State" is set in the future in the year 2051 and plays on a completely new map called Troi. The mobile PUBG is to appear as a free-2-play title in the various stores. By pre-registering, players receive a limited vehicle skin on the day of the release.
PUBG: According to the developer studio, New State should take over many successful features from the debut and expand them with some new properties. The trailer already shows the implementation of a drone and a mobile shield. Another important innovation is the weapon adaptation option during a round. This allows players to adapt their weapon to the respective situation and quickly change attachments. With "New State", Krafton also wants to take graphics to a new level. State-of-the-art global illumination rendering is intended to redefine the limits of mobile gaming. Players can find out what's going on in the announcements during an alpha test before the release. This will take place over the next few months.
In general, Krafton recently announced that it would continue to market the popular battle royale shooter beyond the games industry. The franchise is to be expanded to include an animation series and a web cartoon on a streaming platform, among other things. The development studio is even interested in a film adaptation for the big screen. Another game from the PUBG universe is also in the starting blocks for 2022.
