As we all know that the PUBG Mobile game was banned under Section 69A of the Information Technology Act 2009. The news came as a massive disappointment to the Indian gamer community. But after the recent announcement by PUBG Corporation which is the launch of PUBG: New State, all the players have seen a ray of hope.
The announcement states that PUBG Corporation (a subsidiary of South Korean video game company Bluehole) merges with parent company Krafton Inc. which means all the distribution and development operations of the company’s famous battle-royale title PlayerUnknown’s BattleGrounds is now done under the Canopy of Krafton. The announcement has prompted a number of reactions on social media, with people welcoming it while sharing the meme.
Actually, after this, all the player database and information from the game PUBG Mobile will be handed over to Krafton, which has its own set of privacy policies. This made Krafton, the parent company of PUBG Corporation and Bluehole and hence, this merger can simply be seen as an acquisition of a subsidiary into the parent company.
Krafton is the word that is making us curious to know about it. It means that we have the curiosity to know about the company which is the reason for the return of PUBG Mobile as PUBG: New State. So what are we waiting for, let’s have a look at that:
Krafton: Krafton Inc. is a South Korean video game holding company based in Seongnam. It was founded by Bluehole on 5 November 2018 to better align itself and its subsidiaries under a unified brand.
Krafton then obtained PUBG Corp. and BlueHole as a whole. This means that now all parts of its business are under one name, namely Krafton.
The question arises that what about Tencent?
According to serve, one of the biggest gaming companies in the world is now Krafton (Its total value is at 27.2 million USD or around 388 billion rupiahs.)
whereas, Tencent is a Chinese company that still holds a 13.2% stake in Krafton. So now Tencent is also part of Krafton. Tencent is still one of the largest shareholders in Krafton. This means that nothing will change, Tencent continues to work as usual. The logo which still appears on the start screen of PUBG Mobile supported this fact.
Conclusion: Krafton and Tencent both are the same, with only one parent and one subsidiary.
PUBG New State Vs PUBG Mobile
- Battle Royle Mode
- Variations of Waepons
- Blue Zone
Battle Royle Mode
PUBG Mobile offers a number of game modes but the most popular is the classic battle royale. There are 100 players who jump into one island and duel each other until the last player/team is left. PUBG New State is exactly the same but with the term ‘Lone Survivor’. There are also 100 players fighting each other.
Variations of Waepons
PUBG Mobile already provides a large selection of weapons. Call it SMG, AR, Shotguns, and many more. PUBG New State is set in 2051, which means maybe the choice of weapons could be more.
As usual, the safe zone radius will shrink over time, just like in PUBG Mobile. This feature is also maintained at PUBG New State.
This feature is indeed the main thing in PUBG so that teams end up clashing with each other in the field. Those in the blue zone will be damaged. If you look at the PUBG New State trailer yesterday, this feature seems to be preserved.
Introducing PUBG: NEW STATE, the new Battle Royale developed by PUBG Studio, the company behind PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS (PUBG).
In PUBG: NEW STATE, 100 players will fight with various weapons and strategies until only one party remains.
Utilize gear, vehicles, and consumables to survive the shrinking battleground to become the “last man standing”.
