Many BGMI/ PUBG Mobile players have decided to shift towards New State as the game looks promising enough.

Tencent’s PUBG Mobile has been the top choice for the players who love to engage in an intense battle royale game. The game provides a realistic experience of battling with the enemies simultaneously giving amazing outfits to the players which need to be bought with UC so that they can defeat the enemies in style. When the game got banned in India, Battlegrounds Mobile India came to fill the void with almost the same features.
