Is PUBG New State A Good Alternative For BGMI?

PUBG New State

Ever since the ban of Battlegrounds Mobile India, or BGMI, fans of the game have been seeking an alternative that matches up to the now-banned battle-royale title. PUBG New State seems to be like a possible replacement. The very name of the game itself points towards the fact that PUBG New State is based on the likes of PUBG Mobile and BGMI, both of which are currently banned in India.

In comparison to Battlegrounds Mobile India, in PUBG New State, you will notice slight changes to the character motions and weaponry in every mode. The movements of the characters have a certain level of fluidity that makes them seem more like real people as they jump or change positions to crawl. The weapon animations also appear a little bit better.

The HUD has also been changed. The viewfinder has several control buttons, and in its normal setting, this makes aiming quite difficult. Moving the character in the appropriate path becomes difficult. Nevertheless, the battle royale mode adheres to the same last-man-standing principle as PUBG Mobile or BGMI.

There aren’t many differences between them, except for a few gadgets and the Trunk function. So is PUBG New State a viable replacement for BGMI? Let’s find out.
