PUBG: New State has surpassed 40 million pre-registrations globally, according to developer Krafton. The developers have also stated that PUBG: New State's release date will be announced next month, October. The game has also recently finished its second alpha test that took place 28 different countries.

Pre-registrations for the new battle royale game opened in India earlier this month. The fact that Krafton had recently authorized pre-orders for the game in India could have played a role in the rise of pre-registrations for the game. The game was first revealed in February. However, pre-registration was delayed because of the introduction of PUBG Mobile's India avatar, Battlegrounds Mobile India.

"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," said Minkyu Park, Executive Producer of PUBG: New State. "We're devoting all our resources to ensuring PUBG: New State meets the expectations of our fans, both in terms of entertainment and stability."

Krafton also published a trailer for the new game, which showed off the gameplay and mechanics.

The game will be set on a new map named Troi and will feature future weapons and vehicles such as drones, deployable combat shields, and more. PUBG: New State is based on the original PUBG Mobile. However, it takes place in the year 2051. According to the developers, PUBG: New State will be the most realistic battle royale game available on smartphones.
