Will players be able to download and play the Alpha test of PUBG New State in India?


Indian players won't be able to play the Alpha test of PUBG New State as the test is only exclusive for the Android platform in the United States. Even if players were able to register for it and got selected by using methods like VPN, they wouldn’t be able to access it by any means.

Users must note that utilizing virtual locations via developer settings and VPNs is prohibited. One of the admins on the PUBG New State community discord server stated the following regarding access to the Alpha test:

“Warning! Please note that if your device is using a VPN, has Developer Options enabled, or you are using an emulator, access to the Alpha will be restricted. Additionally, we take fair play and anti-cheat very seriously. Any attempts to alter the game files or use unauthorized programs (e.g., cheats, hacks, etc.) will force the game client to close.”
