PUBG: New State is set in 2051 and will see you drop into a brand new area called TROI. This new battleground is covered in unique landmarks and has an environment full of interactable objects that help you discover everything about this evolved universe through play.
The new battle royale will feature all of the elements fans know and love from the original PUBG, but also includes an in-game weapon customisation feature. You can acquire various kits around the map that allows you to transform weapons in a myriad of different ways, such as grenade launcher attachments and performance enhancements.

Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds, also known as PUBG, is expanding into the future. Developer Krafton has unveiledPUBG: New State for iOS and Android, taking the battle royale game into the year 2051 to a place called Troi. Unlike PUBG Mobile, which is was developed by China’s Tencent, this is an all-new experience created by the PUBG Studio team.
With a 30-year time jump, the new map promises futuristic weapons, techniques and vehicles, including a ballistic shield, combat rolls and drones. It also offers a new in-game customization feature, letting you build your own weapons via customization kits — including performance enhancements, fire mode selection and grenade launcher attachments.
The trailer shows pretty much what you’d expect with a PUBG title, like raging gunfights, car chases and cinematic set pieces. The futuristic but grubby environment is quite different from current maps, but PUBG: New State should look good for a mobile game. It will deliver global illumination rendering along with improved graphics and smoother, more stable gameplay, the developer said. PUBG: New State will come to Android and iOS tablets and phones sometime in 2021, but you can pre-register for the Android version now.
