PUBG: New State is like the original version where 100 players are dropped into a single map and fight to be the last one standing. While the game is to be released on mobile, the use of new technology ensures that the graphics are better than ever.

Players can also expect gunplay that’s not only dynamic but also more realistic. Gunplay has been optimized for the mobile experience. There’s also a new weapon attachment system that players can use to customize their weapons. In terms of gameplay, there are interesting new mechanics like dodging and support requests. Players can even call for drones.
