New State Mobile, formerly PUBG: New State, will go into maintenance on February 10. The downtime is for its developer Krafton to prepare the game for the next update, scheduled for February. New State Mobile will get a new game mode, content and some improvements. Maintenance is scheduled for approximately six hours. Late last month, Krafton announced that it had changed the name of PUBG: New State to New State Mobile.
In a post, Krafton announced that New State Mobile will go into maintenance on February 10 from 00:00 (midnight) to 6:00 UTC (5:30 to 11:30 IST). Once the game is shut down for maintenance, players will no longer be able to access the game. Once updated, players will need to manually update the game on Android and iOS to regain access to the game. If there are any changes in maintenance downtime, Krafton will announce on their blog.
If for some reason the update button is not visible on the respective app stores, players will need to clear PUBG: New State cache to install the update. To clear the cache on Google Play Store, go to Settings > Application > Google Play Store > Storage > Delete Cache. Similarly, for Galaxy Store, go to Settings > Application > Galaxy Store > Storage > Delete Cache. However, there is no method mentioned to clear cache on iOS. Krafton also mentioned that the update might hit the respective app stores later for some devices.
Last month, Krafton announced that it had renamed PUBG: New State to New State Mobile. The official social media handles for the game show the updated name. The game was released in November last year and has since racked up over 45 million downloads, according to a previous report. The game was still listed as PUBG: New State on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store, at the time of writing.
