KRAFTON's latest battle royale PUBG New State introduced a futuristic and dystopian twist to the popular franchise; however, many players have been complaining about experiencing a slew of bugs, crashes and server connection issues in the game.

Indeed, the developers have attempted to ameliorate some of these issues with various updates, however, these incidentally came with their own unique set of problems.

On 25th November, the PUBG New State team issued an emergency maintenance compensation announcement on its website, addressing a recent issue where in-game items could be mistakenly claimed by certain accounts, which has since been fixed.

"The accounts affected by this issue have been temporarily restricted from accessing the game while we retrieve these items and rectify the issue," the announcement read.

The PUBG New State further indicated, "For those whose accounts have been temporarily blocked, access to your account will be restored once this process is complete, and we will be sending compensation to your in-game mail."

The PUBG New State team later issued an apology to all players affected by the issue and to those whose accounts were blocked.

"We hope that you will all join us as we continue to improve the PUBG: New State and the Battlegrounds of 2051," the announcement concluded.

While the issue has been resolved, there is no telling how long it will take for affected players to regain access to their accounts.
