Second, this alpha test will only be available for interested players in the United States. One can head to the PUBG: New State website to sign-up for the limited program. Players can also pre-register for the game on Google Play Store for a potential spot in the alpha program. The applications for the alpha testing will be open till June 6.

As part of the alpha testing, the company is likely looking to gather feedback from players. It will use this feedback to further tweak, refine, and develop the game.

This information around the alpha testing comes months after the company first announced the game on the global stage.

Looking at the new 36 seconds “Cinematic Teaser”, the company teases some of the gameplay elements that one can expect including drones. The trailer also included a text asking players to “Take on a new Battleground beyond Battle Royale”.
