Its smartphone version has a huge playerbase and has arguably seen a bit more consistency in updates than the full-powered console and PC versions in recent times.

In a move that sounds designed to ape some of tech available to players in Call of Duty: Warzone, the new setting will bring with it new gadgets like drones and deployable cover.
New State will also bring twists to the PUBG formula, including weapon kits that modify your guns on the fly, and there’ll also be a host of new vehicles to get around in.
Gamers on Android phones can pre-register to get the game now, while iOS users will have to wait a little longer to be able to pre-order it. New State will release later in 2021, with alpha tests planned before that happens.
