PUBG: New State has partnered with Rimac, the maker of electric hypercars and components. Krafton’s Battle Royale game is about to receive an electric hypercar from Rimac. According to the teaser shared by Krafton, the upcoming EV hypercar coming to PUBG: New State will most likely be the Rimac Nevera. Earlier this month, Krafton also unveiled a new map for PUBG: New State and some key updates for 2022, as well as some giveaways to celebrate the New Year.
Through a teaser video shared on YouTube, Krafton revealed that PUBG: New State is about to get a new vehicle. Rimac Nevera will be available to players on the Troi map, but no mention was made of when players can drive the car in the game. Currently, the specifications of the hypercar in the game are unknown.
Rimac Nevera is the second vehicle from the Croatian hypercar and components manufacturer. In the real world, the two-seater electric hypercar is powered by a 120 kWh battery that generates 1,914 hp with 13,430 Nm of wheel torque and reaches a top speed of 412 km / h. Driven by four independent electric motors – one on each wheel – it reaches 0-100 km / h in 1.93 seconds. It also has a claimed range of 550 kilometers.
Earlier this month, Krafton teased a new card by sharing three pictures that give us a taste of what’s to come. The map appears to have a mix of plains and hills, as well as modern buildings and a central city tower. The release date of the card has not yet been confirmed.
In addition, PUBG: New State will also receive its first major updates in the first two months of 2022. Krafton mentioned that his top priorities in 2022 will be “making more updates and improvements” to meet expectations.
“We also want to make sure we deliver the best service and gaming experience to all of our global survivors, regardless of location or device,” added Krafton.
As part of the New Year celebrations, Krafton is gifting players six Chicken Medals and three Royale Chest Box Tickets. Players have received a coupon code “HAPPYNEWSTATE” which can be redeemed to receive virtual in-game freebies. The New Year celebrations are valid until January 10th at 11:59 pm IST.
