Can you use a controller in PUBG: New State? Here's what we found.

Best answer: There's no word on controller support yet, but because PUBG Mobile doesn't natively support controllers, it's safe to bet that PUBG: New State will do the same.

A brand new mobile-exclusive

PlayerUnknown's BattleGrounds, or PUBG, is one of the first major battle royale titles to hit the scene, ushering in a new genre of multiplayer game. The popularity of PUBG is massive, especially on Android, and Tencent plans to deliver a bigger and better experience with PUBG: New State, a brand new, mobile-exclusive game set in the PUBG universe. As the first true successor to the original PUBG, players can expect updated visuals, dynamic gunplay, and new unique mechanics such as dodging, drone calls, and support requests. It's quite possible it ends up as one of the best Android games available when it arrives.

PUBG: New State is set in the year 2051, meaning it's a "near-future" war setting, allowing developers to introduce changes based on upcoming technology. Amusingly, this isn't the farthest out the franchise is going, as the forthcoming third-person horror game The Callisto Protocol is set in the PUBG universe, taking place in the year 2320.

But one change on everyone's mind is whether or not PUBG: New State will feature controller support? With native controller support and tons of great game controllers for Android, this should be a sure thing, right? Unfortunately, the jury is still out on this one, and we don't know if PUBG: New State will support controllers.

Next generation battle royale

Unlike popular mobile shooters like Call of Duty: Mobile, PUBG Mobile does not natively support controllers on Android. While some plug-ins can enable controller support, they're not officially supported, and using them could result in a ban. This could change as we get closer to release, of course. The developers have been working hard on the game, taking feedback from participants in various PUBG: New State Alpha testing rounds.

PUBG Mobile is one of the best free-to-play Android games available, and we're expecting PUBG: New State to carry on the series' over-the-top multiplayer matches. You can see PUBG: New State now on Google Play to get the latest news and updates on the game. PUBG: New State is available on mobile devices worldwide as of Nov. 11, 2021.

Uber Eats exits seven markets, transfers one as part of competitive retooling

Uber Eats is pulling out of a clutch of markets — shuttering its on-demand food offering in the Czech Republic, Egypt, Honduras, Romania, Saudi Arabia, Uruguay and Ukraine. It’s also transferring its Uber Eats business operations in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to Careem, its wholly owned ride-hailing subsidiary that’s mostly focused on the Middle East. “Consumers and restaurants using the Uber Eats app in the UAE will be transitioned to the Careem platform in the coming weeks, after which the Uber Eats app will no longer be available,” it writes in a regulatory filing detailing the operational shifts. “These decisions were made as part of the Company’s ongoing strategy to be in first or second position in all Eats markets by leaning into investment in some countries while exiting others,” the filing adds. An Uber spokesman said the changes are not related to the coronavirus pandemic but rather related to an ongoing “strategy of record” for the company to hold a first or s

This popular open-source web server has some serious security flaws

OpenLiteSpeed Web Server, a globally popular open-source web server , was carrying a couple of high-severity vulnerabilities, experts have warned. Threat actors that managed to exploit these flaws would have been given full privilege remote code execution capabilities, noted researchers from Unit 42, Palo Alto Networks’ cybersecurity research arm.  The team found OpenLiteSpeed Web Server carried three high-severity vulnerabilities, namely CVE-2022-0073 (an 8.8 severity score, high-severity remote code execution flaw), CVE-2022-0074 (an 8.8 high-severity privilege escalation flaw), and CVE-2022-0072 (a 5.8, medium-severity directory traversal flaw). The vulnerabilities also affected the enterprise version, LiteSpeed Web Server. Patch ready Unit 42 has notified LiteSpeed Technologies of its findings which has, subsequently, patched the flaws, and released new versions of the server, urging users to update their software immediately.  Organizations using OpenLiteSpeed versions 1.5.1
