What you need to know

  • PUBG New State is coming to iPhone and iPad on October 8.
  • Gamers can pre-order the game in the App Store now.

PUBG fans can look forward to playing the upcoming PUBG New State as soon as October 8. What's more, the game can be pre-ordered in the App Store now.

Announced via a tweet, the new pre-order mechanism is now live and will mean that your new game will automatically be downloaded to your iPhone and iPad as soon as it's made available.

In PUBG: NEW STATE, 100 players will fight with various weapons and strategies until only one party remains. Utilize gear, vehicles, and consumables to survive the shrinking battleground to become the "last man standing".

Developer KRAFTON promises that gamers can look forward to going "beyond battle royale" with "ultra-realistic graphics that exceeds the limits of mobile gaming." That probably means you're going to want to be playing this on a pretty recent iPhone or iPad, so keep that in mind when you're ratcheting up those excitement levels.

While the game will be available in early access soon, that program will be limited to specific countries — and none of them are the United States.

KRAFTON lists the download at a hefty 1.2GB, with iOS 13 or later needed to install the game. You won't need a game controller, but I'd wager that playing with one will be the better experience here.

Those looking to register their pre-order can do so via the App Store now (opens in new tab).
