New Map in PUBG: New State
Krafton recently published an official blog post to share the future plans for PUBG: New State. In the post, the company revealed its plans to add a new map to the game. Although it did not reveal much information, Krafton gave us a sneak peek at the upcoming “Battleground” it is currently working on. You can check out the screenshots in the slideshow below.
Now, going by the images, the new map looks pretty cool and features open environments with green fields and hills. We can also see that there will be a modern, city-like area with a central city tower, modern houses, well-built roads, and other detailed elements in this new map.
