The mobile game PUBG: New State was released on Thursday for both Android and iOS devices. The launch, on the other hand, did not proceed as planned. Additionally, PUBG: New State has been discovered to brick phones, in addition to server issues, app failures, and sporadic flaws in the game.
After installing and running PUBG: New State, a number of users rushed to Twitter to say that they had misplaced their Android phone and that they were now attempting to recover the device. Krafton has officially published an update for PUBG: New State on Android, which is expected to include a cure for the game’s bricking problem.
Krafton refers to it as an “Optional Update” for Android, and it resolves a slew of issues that were previously present. This update “changes [the default Graphics API settings to] OpenGL ES for devices that do not support Vulkan, fixes game crashes related to the Vulkan API that occurred on certain devices, fixes an issue where optimising the game right after launching it would cause the game to crash, and fixes other issues that would cause system crashes within the game,” according to patch notes.
However, none of them specifically addresses what may have caused the small number of instances in which certain devices were bricked when gamers attempted to connect into the game using a Google or Facebook account.
However, because there have been no fresh complaints, it is probable that a remedy for the problem will be included in the next version. Many professional players have attempted to play PUBG: New State on a variety of Android devices, and all of them appear to be functioning properly for them. This suggests that the problem has only been experienced by a small number of phones, all of which, according to some accounts, were running Android 12.
According to tipster Mukul Sharma, his Oppo Find X2 Pro was completely fried after he attempted to boot up the game on phone. Despite the fact that the gadget was eventually retrieved, this is not an unusual occurrence. A number of other users have also reported that their phones have stopped operating as a result of playing PUBG: New State. However, the problem does not appear to be common.
Players of PUBG: New State should be able to observe that all of the issues have been resolved as a result of the new update. Despite the fact that Krafton has not specifically addressed the issue of bricking in the patch notes, the company issued a statement to Gadgets 360 in which it stated, “We conducted sufficient testing on mobile devices with specifications similar to the Galaxy S7 or models with 2GB RAM and have confirmed smooth functionality of the game.” Although the comment appears to be unconnected to the bricking issue, Krafton has claimed that it has not come across any instances of phones being bricked in the course of its investigation.
