Gamers who were able to download PUBG: New State are seeing an “Unable to connect to the server” error.

PUBG New State from the makers of Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI) is now available to download in India. The new action title is available to download via Google Play, while its Apple App Store listing shows the game will be available to install from November 12. It is the first PUBG branded game that is available in India to download, following the ban on the original PUBG Mobile in the country last year. Its developer Krafton re-released PUBG Mobile earlier this year (as BGMI) with several tweaks, suitable for the Indian market. Krafton had earlier announced it severed ties with China-based Tencent for the development of BGMI. However, it remains unclear whether Tencent has been a part of the development of PUBG New State.

New State launch has been delayed by two hours due to technical issues. The new battle royale game from the house of South Korean publisher Krafton was originally scheduled to be available for download in more than 200 countries around the globe including in India at 4:00 UTC (9:30am IST) on Thursday. The publisher, however, announced the delay in the launch just minutes after the game was meant to go live. PUBG: New State is touted to deliver a next-generation battle royale experience to mobile devices — on par with the PC version PUBG: Battlegrounds.

PUBG New State is nearly 1.4GB in size on Google Play, but this may also vary across smartphones. The game is free to download and require Android version 6 and above. Additionally, the app supports in-app purchases, and the prices range from Rs 75 to Rs 8,900. Krafton had said that the new game would be available in 17 different languages globally. It is unclear why there’s a delay with the launch on iOS. Gamers on Android may also face errors playing the game as Krafton says the title is “undergoing maintenance for two hours .”

“In order to look into some last-minute issues with the cloud servers and ensure that service is stable upon launch, the official launch of PUBG: New State will be delayed by two hours,” the company said. “We are working to resolve these issues and apologise to all of our Survivors for this delay.”

New State further promises to change the formula for PUBG games, as it will bring in-game weapon customisations that will allow players to modify their weapons within a match, something similar to Apex Legends’ weapon attachments. Weapons customisations are also available on Call of Duty: Warzone.

New State were able to download the game from Google Play and Apple’s App Store on their Android and iOS devices, respectively. However, due to the technical issues, they are seeing an “Unable to connect to the server” error.

New State was announced in February as a new version in the PUBG franchise. Since the announcement, the game has garnered over 50 million pre-registrations on both Android and iOS. Pre-registrations for PUBG: New State went live in India in September.

Late last month, Krafton announced the final test of PUBG: New State before its launch that was conducted in 28 countries globally, including in Bahrain, Hong Kong, Korea, Myanmar, Nepal, and Singapore, among others.
