Alpha Test For PUBG: New State Announced, Registrations In Selected Regions Have Begun

Developer Krafton announced in a video trailer posted recently the start of closed alpha tests for the new futuristic battle royale mobile game, PUBG: New State. Enjoy and explore the brand new battleground known as TROI.


Krafton first unveiled PUBG: New State in February of this year. It is reportedly a brand new futuristic version of the incredibly popular and traditional battle royale series PUBG Mobile. The game will feature new gadgets and a whole new map, in addition to the current drones and vehicles seen in publicly available gameplay footage. A separate Training Map will be available as well, where players will be able to access guns, goods, vehicles, and much more.

Along with the confirmation of the upcoming arrival of PUBG: New State's closed alpha test, Krafton recently opened registrations for the game's alpha. As of the moment, it will only be available in the US and is exclusive only for Android because of several game specifications and necessary network requirements. However, iOS users can rest easy as developers assured that iOS pre-registrations will also start very soon. Take note that in order to participate in this procedure, players must have a device that runs Android 6.0 or above and has at least 2.5 GB of RAM.


The PUBG: New State Alpha Test will focus on evaluating an early version of the game's performance, server and network reliability, and in-development gameplay systems. Also, the user feedback that Krafton gets during the Alpha Test, according to the development team, will help the company ensure to exceed expectations when the entire game is published later this year. It will also help them expand PUBG: New State to other countries and regions. That is why players are urged to sign up before the alpha begins since slots will only be limited.

“We are committed to using all the valuable community feedback and game data we receive during the Alpha Test to improve and deliver an experience that meets fan expectations when it launches. Our goal is to craft a truly enjoyable gameplay experience for players across the world, and we can’t wait to get the game into the community’s hands soon.” - Minkyu Park, Executive Producer for PUBG: New State.

In other reports, Krafton revealed in an official press release that PUBG: New State will not immediately launch in India and that it is being developed by “PUBG Studio, the Creators of the Original Battle Royale, PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS.” The reason for India's omission from the launch is unknown at this time, but it doesn't rule out the possibility of a future release in the said region.
