PUBG - NEW STATE: Bring in your Battle Royale Fantasies!


Are you a PUBG Battle Royale fan? Then you’ve just landed at the right place. We’ll be reviewing the all-new PUBG: New State, which has been the talk of the town since even before it got released, is the sequel to the original PUBG mobile.

The graphics are very impressive, and enticing just like the original PUBG. But was there a need for this new PUBG: NEW STATE after the mobile version? This we’ll find out in this review.

Apart from maintaining the legacy of impressive graphics, the PUBG: NEW STATE isn’t really anything out of the box when compared to the original PUBG mobile. The game follows the traditional format of a battle royale game where players are usually dropped onto an island of some sort, and tasked to combat each other which ends as one person coming out as a winner at the end.




However, a major difference we encountered in the PUBG: NEW STATE when compared to its prequel PUBG mobile is that this time the backdrop is of 2051. Yes, that’s right! The game takes place somewhere in the far future featuring a map called Troi & the year is 2051. Despite the seemingly new name and the futuristic setting, Troi looks and feels a lot like a typical battle royale map, and has a variety of empty buildings, woodsy areas, and more to explore.

The map also features more or less the same type of vehicles that you can find in PUBG Mobile, albeit with a more futuristic skin applied. However, we did find two new vehicles this time around which have been named, the Volta and Vulture. The Volta is a brand new car, while the Vulture is a two-wheeler that operates similar to how motorcycles do in the PC versions of PUBG.

So, is this the same old battle royale only wrapped in new packaging? To an extent, yes. The biggest & somewhat impressive addition to the map is the tram system. The trams found in this sequel of PUBG operate as moving safe houses, allowing players to hop in them and travel across the map freely without the threat of being harmed or attacked. The trams here are bulletproof and will move you to areas faster enough without having to worry about getting to them on foot. They also provide you with the comfort to take a break & heal or simply take a breather while in them, making it a great place to hide out if you're in the middle of a big fight. This newly introduced trams system, seem rather influenced by the zip-lining feature in Call of Duty (aka COD). But now since it’s here, it feels like a resourceful addition. 

New weapons have also been included into PUBG: New State, and while they're mostly more of the same in terms of fire rate, ammo, and style, it was nice to be playing with something other than the typical weapons that have been around in PUBG. However, it would be nice to see some even new weapons make their way into the game, especially with New State currently having a very firm meta that revolves around SMGs.

Perhaps the biggest addition to the map, however, is the tram system. The trams found in PUBG: New State operate as moving safe houses, allowing players to hop in them and travel across the map freely without the threat of being harmed. The trams are bulletproof and will move you to areas way faster than having to worry about getting to them on foot. You're also able to heal or simply take a breather while in them, making it a great place to hide out if you're in the middle of a big fight.

If we talk about the controls, PUBG: New State comes with the same controls as PUBG Mobile. Which is kind of a bummer for fans who were hoping for something like controller support or a different layout entirely. Much like its predecessor, PUBG: New State seems to not support any external controller options.
