Krafton unleashed its futuristic battle royale title, PUBG: New State, on 11th November 2021. This means some players are already exploring the new map, Troi 2051 and testing their skill with PUBG: New State's best weapons. We say "some" players because there are some connection issues in PUBG: New State right now, with players receiving the "unable to connect to server" error when launching the game.
Here's what you need to know about the current PUBG: New State connection issue, and how you can check the game's server status with ease.
PUBG: New State "unable to connect to server" error
The first thing PUBG: New State players should do after installing the game via Google PlayStore or the APK file, is to check if their internet connection is working properly. We suggest a solid Wi-Fi connection to alleviate any issues if your mobile connection isn't ideal.
It is important to note that the "unable to connect to server" error might not be a user issue, especially during the first week of launch from 11th to 18th November 2021.
Krafton took to Twitter on launch day to explain that: "Due to a large inflow of users in a short time period, some users may be temporarily experiencing log-in issues. We are looking into resolving this issue swiftly. Thank you for your patience."
Once players have confirmed there is nothing wrong on their side, it is always a good idea to check the PUBG: New State server status.
How to check PUBG: New State server status
If you want to if the PUBG: New State servers are currently down, then the process is thankfully quite easy.

On 11th November at roughly 11:00 BST, Krafton explained: "It has come to our attention that there is an issue with the log-in process. We are working on resolving this issue quickly so you can get back to the game. Thank you for your patience."
