SANTA MONICA, CALIF. - November 24, 2022 – KRAFTON, Inc. today released its November Update for NEW STATE MOBILE, the popular battle royale game on iOS and Android. With this update, players can now respawn into a match if eliminated within the second phase of the Blue Zone without a teammate’s request. Additionally, players can hone their combat skills and battle for high scores in NEW STATE MOBILE’s new SHOOTING GALLERY mode, experience the new SL8 Designated Marksman Rifle (DMR), and start working their way through Survivor Pass Vol. 13 to earn exclusive rewards.
While a comprehensive breakdown of NEW STATE MOBILE’s November Update can be found via the patch notes HERE, see below for key highlights.
- Get back to the fight with changes to the battle royale “Initial Phase” rules: As of this update, if a player is eliminated within the second phase of the Blue Zone during a battle royale match, they can return to the match one time without needing a teammate fire a Green Flare Gun. This feature has been added to both solo and squad modes. When re-entering a match, players ride back into the map on a taxi drone and will have access to all the same equipment they would have if they were respawned by a teammate who used a Green Flare Gun.
- Chase the high score in the SHOOTING GALLERY mode: This new addition to the game’s TRAINING MODE allows players to practice their shooting skills, while also competing to earn high scores and climb the leaderboard. When playing the SHOOTING GALLERY mode, players can select their favorite weapon as they participate in three one-minute rounds. During each round, players will be tasked with destroying a variety of targets. Players can string together combos and earn additional points if they destroy targets quickly. As this season ends, rewards will be awarded to players based on their SHOOTING GALLERY mode ranking.
- Check out the new SL8 DMR: Players can now try out the new SL8 DMR, which uses 5.56mm ammunition. The SL8 is a stable weapon that has strong damage output and can be equipped with attachments to the barrel, scope, magazine and stock. The SL8 can also be customized with a suppressor barrel for those who prefer a stealthier approach to combat. The suppressor barrel increases damage output and noise suppression at the cost of decreased recoil control and reduced muzzle slot availability.
- Level up the new Survivor Pass Vol. 13 to earn exclusive items: The featured character of Survivor Pass Vol. 13 is GLC’s Carrie Mcgrath. All players who complete the pass’ story missions will be able to earn her face appearance for free. Those who upgrade to the Premium Pass will also receive Carrie Mcgrath’s full costume set. As players continue to level up the Survivor Pass, additional awards will become available. Finally, players who purchase the Premium Pass can get NEW STATE CREDITS (NC) refunded when they reach a certain pass level.
