PUBG still remains in force thanks to a strong community that supports it both in its version of consoles and PC, as well as that of cell phones. Worldwide, Krafton’s Battle Royale is a good benchmark for a genre where competition is still strong with such interesting titles as Call of Duty: Warzone or Fortnite.
However, the study wants to continue imposing itself within the mobile market and will launch PUBG: New State, a sequel that will arrive worldwide on November 11, both on iOS and Android devices. The big question that some fans have asked is whether this title will seek to get involved within the esports scene like the original game.
A question that has been answered by Daehoon Kim, creative director of New State. The developer confirmed that, at the moment, they have no immediate plans to bring the new PUBG to the esports arena. Kim said that instead of focusing on a competitive side, the developers make it a priority to do everything possible so that their new game has a “stable service“.
In that sense, he pointed out that there are partners from different regions interested in Krafton definitely positioning New State as the next esports game. However, they will evaluate what will happen once the game is released and is stable. Despite Kim’s response, it is confirmed that Krafton will develop online tournaments.
Will PUBG New State have a competitive mode?
This week, the developers at PUBG New State confirmed that a ranking system consisting of 8 levels will be coming to the game.
Players who get involved in this competitive mode will be able to advance and achieve new ranks. The seasons will restart every two months.
In that sense, the first two months after the launch of the game, the “preseason“, which will be the preamble to the first official New State tournament in January 2022. That said, players who rank higher at the end of each season will have the opportunity to participate in regional online tournaments, where they will receive “great rewards“according to Krafton.
