PUBG: New State, Krafton's next battle royale title, was released on November 11, 2021, and it quickly surpassed a million downloads on the Google Play Store. In addition to India, the game has been released in over 200 countries. The game was projected to gain a big number of downloads immediately after receiving a good first-day reaction. PUBG: New State has recently surpassed 1 crore (over 10 million) downloads in the Android Play Store.
It's worth noting that the game experienced various post-release troubles, such as server crashes and smartphone bricking. The developers appear to have addressed and rectified those issues with a few of releases. On the day of debut, some users complained about slow loading screens, difficulty to join a match, and other issues on social media sites. The loading screen getting stuck at 38% was another common issue with the new game.
Within five days of its release, PUBG: New State has surpassed the 1 crore download mark on the Android Play Store. That reflects the game's enormous popularity among mobile gamers. To make the game more enticing and entertaining for battle royale gamers, Krafton has included a slew of new features. The plot of PUBG: New State is set in the year 2051, therefore players will have access to futuristic weaponry and vehicles throughout the game.
The gameplay mechanics have also been improved significantly. When players attack the bottom section of a door, for example, only that part is demolished, leaving the rest of the building intact. Players will be able to parkour over barriers and tiny items on the ground by holding down the jump button. Vehicles in the game will feature trunks where weapons and supplies may be stored. Players will be able to select adversaries as teammates, which is an interesting twist.
Most recently, before it was released on iOS devices, Krafton's India-only video game Battlegrounds Mobile India surpassed the 50 million download mark in the nation. On the occasion, BGMI players were also awarded special in-game gifts.
