KRAFTON surely knows how to keep itself busy. The company has just released Battlegrounds Mobile India recently and is now working on the expansion of the PUBG universe with its PUBG: New State.

PUBG: New State is bringing a new gameplay experience to the field.

While BGMI is the India-specific version of KRAFTON's hit mobile Battle Royale, PUBG: New State takes on completely new turf. It's set in the year 2051 in the dystopian city of Troi which has faced environmental, economic, and political collapse.

Other than their concepts, the two titles also differ in various aspects despite some assumptions of their similarities. Let's find out the most visible differences between PUBG: New State and BGMI.


BGMI is an India-exclusive Battle Royale game. That means only those who are residing in Indian can access the game. However, PUBG: New State pre-registrations were global. In August, Krafton had announced a second alpha test for multiple countries from Asia, MENA (the Middle East and North Africa), and Turkey.

Though South Asian countries like Nepal and Sri Lanka did manage to make it to the list of test regions, India did not. However, the latter finally had its own Indian pre-registrations for PUBG: New State for both Android and iOS users on September 1st, 2021.

Premise And Timeline

Battlegrounds Mobile India is based in the present day. KRAFTON has stated that they will upgrade the gameplay of BGMI for PUBG: New State. But, the timeline and premise are twos of the major differences between PUBG: New State and BGMI.

PUBG: New State takes place in the near future in the year 2051. Players will be exploring a dystopian city - Troi, located in the American Midwest. The town is in a state of anarchy where factions such as New State, GLC, Mayhem, and the Hunters battle each other for survival. The New State faction contains the former citizens of Troi.

BGMI is pretty much the same as the other PUBG Mobile game versions.


PUBG: New State offers players the chance to battle on the brand new 8x8 map of Troi. Some of the key locations within the city are Exhibit Hall, The Mall, Laboratory, and Trailer Park. However, KRAFTON has not released any other maps they have in store for New State.

Meanwhile, BGMI has all the standard maps one can expect in a PUBG game with Erangel, Livik, Miramar, Sanhok, and Karakin. This is one of the most noticeable difference of PUBG: New State vs BGMI till now.

Weapons And Vehicles

Another shocking difference between PUBG: New State and BGMI is the weapon armory and vehicles. Of course, PUBG: New State will feature high-tech modern weapons and vehicles while retaining some of the classics from BGMI. New vehicles include the Volta, a quiet electric car, the Vulture, a heavy-duty motorcycle, and the Tram, a railway system that runs through Troi.

New State will also feature drones that can be accessed through the drone shop and new Dyneema armor. New State will feature a new weapon customization kit that lets players modify weapons like never before. It's pretty much like COD Mobile Gunsmith.
