PUBG: New State Go Live Pre registers for Android, iOS users in India
New State pre-registrations in India went live, announced game maker Krafton. Pre-registration is now open to Android and iPhone users, respectively, at Google Play Store and App Store. The new game had already been announced in February globally, but pre-registrations had not been open in India at the time, because PUBG Mobile India was launched in the country as a mobile battleground.
But now that Battlegrounds Mobile India is launched, Indian users can pre-register for the PUBG: New State, with other gaming players around the world.
Krafton says PUBG: New State will start this year as a free-to-play Android and iOS platform experience. However, a precise start date has not yet been shared. Interested players can pre-register for Android and iOS devices on Google Play and the App Store.
PUBG: Since February, New State attracted more than 32million pre-enrollments in the whole world, but fans from India, China and Vietnam do not include these numbers. Pre-recorded users have free access to limited skin of the car (permanently).
The PUBG: New State has the familiar royal battle setting, but it is in 2051 and includes state-of-the-art weapons, vehicles and gadgets promising improved play. Some of the new mechanics and environments that differentiate PUBG – New State from other PUBG titles – were presented in February in this trailer. New ridings, flying toys and customisable weapons are some of the tricky features.
In September last year, because of its relation to the chinese company Tencent, PUBG Mobile India was banned in India. This year, after Krafton took over the publishing and distribution rights of PUBG Mobile, it was returned as Battlecentries Mobile India. PUBG: new state, too, comes to India now with the same company. Krafton says it has invested $700 million in India this year (approximately Rs. 511 crores), including the Nodwin Gaming sports company, the Loco game streaming portal, and the Pratilipi web-based novel platform.
