No, this is not another DLC package for PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG). 

Although the nomenclature doesn't exactly radiate "boundless creativity", PUBG: NEW STATE is actually an entirely new game from developer PUBG Studios. Set in the future fifty years after the original PUBG game, New State supposedly blends the fast-paced battle royale action of its predecessor with ultra-realistic graphics and gunplay feel. 

No matter what your opinions of the battle royale format might be, the fact remains that over 40 million people have already pre-registered for it on the App Store and Google Play Store to date,  which is actually quite impressive considering its developers have yet to reveal an official launch date.

However, these 40 million people won't be waiting too long for that bit of information to arrive, as PUBG Studio is scheduled to go public with the release date sometime next month. As before, the mobile-only title will be published by KRAFTON Inc.for a global audience before the end of the year, with the exclusion of China, Vietnam and India.
