PUBG: New State is an entiretly different game, and features mechanics and gameplay that fans of the original games might not be familiar with. Here's everything we know about PUBG: New State so far.

What is PUBG: New State?

PUBG: New State is brand new, mobile-only game set in the PUBG universe. The game is set a few decades into the future, taking players to 2051 for an entirely new way to experience the warfare that PUBG has come to be known for.

Information on what exactly has happened to the PUBG universe in the decades between this and the original PUBG is scarce at the moment, but we do know from the trailer that the new map is called "TROI." It's unclear at the moment just what else is going on in the story of PUBG: New State, but Tencent has become known for tossing in some very unique and interesting Easter eggs and narrative points into PUBG: Mobile, so it wouldn't be shocking to see that hit PUBG: New State as well.

What's gameplay like in PUBG: New State?

Similar to both the PC version of PUBG and PUBG: Mobile, the upcoming PUBG: New State will see players dropped into a battlefield and forced to fight their way out. Similar to its predecessors, PUBG: New State will feature an entirely new map, known as TROI, which houses a ton of new points of interests as well as other hidden Easter eggs and items that help explain just how the world of PUBG has evolved.

For those used to playing PUBG: Mobile, nothing should be too different from the brief glimpses of gameplay we've seen. You'll still utilize a lot of your screen to move and aim your character, while having access to reloading, changing your stance, and how you aim on the screen as well. It's unknown just what accessories PUBG: New State will support, but the game is likely to feature phone controller support as well, so fans who would rather play more comfortably don't have to worry.

What's different from PUBG and PUBG: Mobile?

Since PUBG: New State takes place a few decades into the future, the way players battle it out seems to have changed. In the few trailers for the game that we've seen, things like drones, ballistic shields, and more have been added into the game to give players the sense that they're playing something completely new. Alongside the new gear, players can also expect a handful of new weapons, including a grenade launcher and more fire mode selections for certain guns.

New vehicles will also be making their way into PUBG: New State, with the aforementioned drones being shown off alongside the likes of helicopters that look incredibly futuristic. Other than that, it's unclear just what new aspects we'll see in PUBG: New State that differentiate it from its predecessors.

Can I play PUBG: New State now?

Currently, there are no PUBG: New State closed alphas taking place, with two tests having taken place during June and August 2021, respectively.

However, pre-registration for the game is available, with users on both iOS and Android devices able to pre-register for the game now and earn some exclusive items when the game launches this week.

When does PUBG: New State launch?

PUBG: New State will launch on Novembwr 11, 2021, which means fans aren't too far away from being able to jump into the game and experience a brand new way to play one of the most popular battle royales ever.

How to get the Microsoft experience on a Chromebook

Microsoft's dedication to Android translates to a great Chrome OS experience, too. Once upon a time, to get the best experience for Microsoft services, you needed to buy a Windows laptop . If you were on a budget laptop with lower specs, though, performance was slow, all tasks were tedious, and your productivity suffered. These days, though, the best Chromebooks offer excellent performance and less maintenance at lower price points.

FCC approves broadband 'nutrition labels' to help you shop for internet

The FCC is pushing nutrition labels for internet providers. What you need to know The FCC has voted to move forward with new rules for ISPs to display nutrition labels. The proposed rulemaking would mandate ISPs to display relevant speed and pricing information to consumers. This should make it easier for consumers to make an informed decision on their broadband. The FCC voted unanimously on a plan that would allow consumers to make better decisions about their broadband internet. The proposal will require internet service providers (ISPs) - including many of the best wireless carriers in the U.S. — to display "nutrition labels" that display relevant service information for consumers at point-of-sale. This includes internet speeds, allowances, and clear information on rates. "If you walk into any grocery store and pull boxes of cereal from the shelves, you can easily compare calories and carbohydrates," FCC Chair Jessica Rosenworcel said in a statemen

Follow these steps to connect a Pro Controller to your Android phone

Playing games on your smartphone is one of the best ways to entertain yourself. However, it can be tough to play with some games when you're just tapping on a screen. Fortunately, it's possible to sync up a traditional controller. That's where it's nice to connect your Nintendo Switch Pro Controller and get playing on the best gaming phones . By the way, the Playstation 4 controller as well as the Xbox One controller are also compatible with Android devices, if you'd prefer to use one of those. Note: You will only be able to use a Pro Controller if your phone is running Android 10 and if the game you're playing supports controllers. Additionally, the process for syncing the controller with your phone will be different from one phone to the next.

Duke Nukem is getting a movie from some guys who could actually pull it off

The one true Duke. I wouldn’t be surprised if you have no idea who Duke Nukem even is — that’s how hard the classic video game franchise cratered a decade ago. Today, the character is mostly known as a punchline for video game vaporware jokes, about how Duke Nukem Forever spent 14 years in development hell only to become a huge flop. And yet for years now, Duke’s corporate owners have been whispering that a movie is coming, culminating in The Hollywood Reporter ’s story today : Legendary Entertainment has tapped Cobra Kai creators Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg to actually produce a feature film. I don’t quite know how to react! As a gamer who actually quite liked Duke Nukem , Duke Nukem II and Duke Nukem 3D, I absolutely agree that this movie should never be made because Duke Nukem has no depth and no story and was always designed to be a caricature .
