While there was a lot of speculation on whether Krafton would launch PUBG New State in the country, the company finally announced pre-registrations for players in India in September. Gamers will be dropped in on an island, which is set in the future. The TROI map, which is set in 2051, will come with new challenges and gamers will have to make the best of the terrain, interact with objects and use their best strategy to survive and win the round.

While gamers have already pre-registered for PUBG New State, some have been granted access to early testing. We have previously covered how to gain access to the APK and OBB files for Android, while iOS users might have issues getting the official version as the game is not on the store and ‘sideloading’ apps are not allowed on an iPhone. If you have been granted access to the alpha testing on iOS and are wondering how to download and play the game, here’s what you need to do, thanks to a solution spotted by RM Update.

Step 1) Download the Testflight app from the App Store. This allows users to download testing versions of apps that are not available on the App Store, or apps that are yet to be released.

Step 2) Open the Gmail, Outlook or Mail app on your iPhone, then search for the Tester Invitation email that was sent to you by Krafton.

Step 3) Click on the “View in Testflight” mode to open the entry in Testflight. Click on the relevant messages and then the Redeem option which will allow you to download the alpha version of the game.

Step 4) Once the game is downloaded, check the App Library or your home screen for the new icon to begin playing the game. Since it is in alpha testing, you should only be able to gain access while the testing window is open - these details are regularly shared on Krafton’s website.
