PUBG New State gameplay
Krafton has shared several teaser videos that gives us a sneak peek at PUBG New State gameplay, graphics, features, and a lot more. As per them, the game will have an urban setting, with new maps, buildings and modern infrastructures, including multi storey malls, roadside billboards, and more. This means that it will be a completely different scenario than the vast hilly ranges and landscapes of Erangel of BGMI. In addition to that, the players in PUBG New State get to fight futuristic weapons and cars. The company has also promised that the PUBG New State will bring the core PUBG (PC and console) experience to mobile while also introducing features exclusive to this game.
PUBG New State graphics
Krafton claims that PUBG New State’s graphics will push the limits of mobile gaming. It’ll come with global illumination technology to offer realistic gameplay for a better gaming experience. We got a glimpse of it via screenshots and teaser videos; however, the company is set to reveal what refresh rate and resolution the game will support. Reports, meanwhile, suggest that the game will have both TPP and FPP gameplay features. PUBG New State could also boast of Ultra-HD graphics, vintage frames, new kill feed counter, grid lines, voice chat and settings options, and blue zone meter, among other things.
PUBG New State weapons
PUBG New State will come with a wide range of new as well as classic weapons. The game will have the mk47 mutant gun with an auto-firing mode. It’ll also offer several classic weapons such as DP 28 and the Scar, along with the new M24 sniper rifle, AKM assault rifle, M416 assault rifle, AWM sniper rifle, grenade launcher, and Groza weapons. Players will be able to customise and equip better scopes on weapons in PUBG New State. For customisation, the game shall offer a kit that resembles a toolkit to the users. This toolkit will help you supplement the shortcomings or amplify the advantages of your guns. For example, you can turn your single fire weapons to fully automatic. You can also select different barrels to increase the range of your gun.
Krafton claims that it’s going to add many new features and updates to this toolbox in the future.
PUBG New State maps
The PUBG New State is going to debut with new maps. Krafton has already revealed that there will be a new map called “Troi,” set in the year 2051. The map will be 8×8 km wide, which is the same size as the Erangel or Miramar maps of BGMI, and have several new locations including the Exhibit Hall, The Mall, Laboratory and Trailer Park. There will be a stadium and inevitable bridge on the map as well. Along with this, PUBG New State will feature a new take on the fan-favourite Erangel map. Krafton has promised that it’ll launch many new maps in the future.
PUBG New State vehicles
This will arguably be the biggest change in the PUBG New State. The game is said to come with a variety of different vehicles. Some are recognisable from PUBG Mobile, but they are all set to come with a futuristic design and features. Apart from this, the PUBG New State will have electric vehicles, autonomous trams, search drones, new bikes, and advanced helicopters, with two massive fans instead of a rotor, among other things.
New gameplay screen on PUBG New State
Krafton is going to introduce a new gameplay screen with many changes. For example, now players will get a real-time bullet meter that will show up next to the crosshair. This will show you how many bullets are left in your magazine in both graphical and numerical format. And on the top left corner of the screen, you will be able to see the number of assists you have got and the number of people alive on the map along with how many kills you have scored so far.
