PUBG: New State is getting a new map and the first batch of major updates, publisher Krafton has announced as a part of its New Year message to the community. The South Korean company has also given a sneak peek of the upcoming map ahead of its official debut. PUBG: New State was launched in India and around the world in November as the latest battle royale title for mobile gamers — after PUBG Mobile and India-exclusive Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI).
Krafton has released three images to give us a glimpse of the new map that will be launched on PUBG: New State in the middle of 2022. The map appears to have a mix and match of hills and plains as well as modern buildings and a central city tower.
