[Update] PUBG New State iOS launch DELAYED to November 12, only on Android today
PUBG New State iOS launch is delayed! While players on Android can head over to Google Play and download it now, players on iOS devices will need to wait one day more. On the App Store, the PUBG New State download page still shows the “Pre-Order” button and an expected launch date of “November 12”. Hence, if you were excited to play PUBG New State on your brand new iPhone 13, or the iPad, you will have to wait.
Update: PUBG New State is now available for download on compatible iPhone devices. Those who pre-registered for the game will get a notification for the same while opening App Store.
On the positive side, PUBG New State is already available for download on Google Play. The game had gone live since the early hours of November 11 across India and other countries. PUBG New State is a 1.4GB download on Android but it has to download extra-in-game files post installation. That said, most players on the South Asian servers are facing a login error early on.

The game is essentially a sequel to the original PUBG Mobile and brings in a couple of improvements over the original. The most visible one is the graphics quality, where Krafton says it has improved the lighting system to make the game look as good as a console title. In addition, certain gameplay mechanisms have been enhanced to make it on par with the PC version of the game.
Krafton has so far limited PUBG New State to the Battle Royale modes for now. Players will get to play on the Troi map along with Erangel and two more. As part of the pre-order rewards, the game is also distributing free in-game items, including a special car and some in-game currency.
PUBG New State brings the same old battle royale experience with 100 players jumping into the map; the ultimate goal still remains to survive by all means and the game provides weapons and med kits in the form of loot to take advantage of.
