More than 20 million of you have pre-registered for Krafton’s new mobile battle royale, PUBG: New State. This number only includes Google Play registrations, as pre-orders are yet to open on the App Store. The impressive milestone was hit shortly after New State’s alpha test, which ran from June 11 until June 13. Undoubtedly, that number will continue to increase, especially when pre-registration for iOS devices begins next month.
Krafton is using information acquired via the alpha test to further develop the game. “Based on all the player feedback, we will do our best to make sure we complete development by the end of the year and set a milestone for the next-generation mobile games in the battle royale genre,” 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.
