More than 40 million of you have pre-registered for Krafton’s new mobile battle royale, PUBG: New State. This number includes Google Play and App Store pre-registrations, with iOS users being able to register their interest since August. The impressive milestone was hit shortly after New State’s second alpha test – taking place in 28 countries – last month.
Krafton is using information acquired via the alpha test to further develop the game. “We’re now focused on taking the valuable feedback we received during PUBG: New State’s Second Alpha Test and polishing the game before its official launch later this year. We are devoting all our resources to ensuring PUBG: New State meets the expectations of our fans, both in terms of entertainment and stability.” says the game’s executive producer, Minkyu Park.
PUBG: New State is set in 2051, giving the series a more futuristic feel, and is a sequel to the massively popular PUBG Mobile. As such, the game is exclusive to mobile devices.
Oh, and it is not just PUBG: New State that is proving to be a hit with you battle royale fans, as Battlegrounds Mobile India hits 20 million pre-registrations – all through Google in less than two weeks.
