Afterwards, players who own an Android smartphone will go to the Google Play Store, and log in with their Google account. If they are iOS smartphone users, they will go to the Apple App Store, and enter their credentials.
Once they are logged in, they will fill in a survey that Krafton will be given to them. Once they accomplished the said survey, they are now pre-registered, have the right to be first notified if the game is now available to play.
How to Download the .apk File
There are two ways to download PUBG: New State to their smartphones. There is the common method where players need to go to their respective Google Play Stay Store, if they are Android users, or Apple App Store, if they are iOS users, and download the game directly.
Or, if they want to test it out in their smartphones, they will download the game's .apk and .obb files from the internet.
To do this, according to Hindustani Times, they must download the said files from an online storage website, where they are stored. They need to open the said link in a desktop browser first before download it in their smartphones.
Once they are downloaded, they will tap the .apk file first, which will download the game directly. Before this, they need to allow their smartphones to install apps from unknown sources.
Next, they will go to the Android folder in their Phone storage, and find the "obb" folder. Once they located it, they will open it to search for the "com.pubg.newstate.beta" folder, then paste the .obb expansion file. In case that the folder is missing, they can create one instead.
Once they finished the said process, they can delete the downloaded files in order to save space on their Phone storage before they start playing the game.
Players who want to play the game keep in mind that in playing PUBG: New State, it requires the Android smartphones that run Android 6.0 or higher, or iOS 13.0 or higher for iOS users, and at least 2GB worth of RAM.
Also, downloading games from the internet instead from app stores can be dangerous as it may resault in loss of data, privacy, and security.
