The PUBG New State publisher Krafton claimed that it conducted “sufficient testing” prior to the launch date, in response to criticisms regarding battle royale that it was causing bricks to devices. Krafton also said that it had conducted “sufficient testing” prior to the launch. South Korean company also noted that it was able to confirm it’s game’s smooth operation. Krafton did not provide any explanation for the bricking issue mentioned by a few players on social media following the release of PUBG: New State earlier this week. Alongside this bricking problem, players reported that it’s simple to skip the age verification prompts within PUBG: New State and players can play the game even if they’re not yet 18 or over.

However, Krafton hasn’t discussed how it has addressed the issue of bricks or knows of instances.

Many players reported about how the game PUBG New State bricked their devices when it asked players to sign in as guest player or by using an account on social media. A few reports from users suggested that the issue was most likely for devices that run Android 12.3 however Gadgets 360 wasn’t able to independently verify the issue.

Rocky launch date for PUBG following-up

The PUBG game New State had a difficult launch on Thursday when the game’s release was delayed by about an hour because of technical problems. Krafton added a few problems regarding this game on its website.

In addition to the issues that players initially had to face, PUBG New State offers a lenient age verification option which is easily able to be bypassed in the manner reported in India Today. The game has the player a prompt asking them to verify that they are over the age of 18, but when you click on the game continues without further questions. This is different from the game by Krafton Battlegrounds Mobile India ( BGMI) where players must provide their guardians or parents’ number to continue when they’re under the age of 18.

Krafton established the requirement for parental permission in conjunction with the launch of BGMI earlier in the year, to address concerns regarding playing with minors in the game. It was included as a feature to distinguish the game from the original version -which was “PUBG Mobile” which was shut down last year.

BGMI requires users to enter their parent’s or guardians’ phone numbers if they’re younger than 18 years old.
