January update has been released today!
01/20/2023 - KRAFTON, Inc. today released the January update for NEW STATE MOBILE. This month's update aims to change the game's meta by making numerous balance changes to various weapons, vehicles and the drone store.
In addition to the balancing changes, the January update brings Team Deathmatch mode (TDM) to the ARENA map, new Shooting Range and Siege modes, a new Survivor Pass, and more.
Based on player feedback, changes have been made to the weapon and vehicle balance to provide a more dynamic gameplay experience. First, the ranged damage of SMGs, ARs, and LMGs has been reduced to improve the capabilities of weapons that were unpopular in the past. Second, vehicles have been more closely matched to their types. Vehicles such as the Vrion, Electron and UAZ are now more resistant, while sedans now have higher speed and motorcycles have higher stability to make handling easier. Finally, the cooldown of the drone store has been shortened, the delivery speed has been increased and the price of items has been drastically adjusted. These measures should allow players to use a wider arsenal in different situations and have a more positive gaming experience.
Team Death Match makes its way into ARENA
Players can now play TDM in ARENA, which was previously only possible in Round Deathmatch Mode (RDM). The team that reaches 30 eliminations first wins the match in TDM. After elimination, players respawn at a random location near their base. Supply packs do not appear in the center of the map in TDM.
Shooting Range and Siege Mode Updates
Changes have been made to the shooting range, reducing SR bonus points from 800 to 500. Siege Mode, recently introduced to NEW STATE Labs with last month's update, has undergone further changes to structures and difficulty, and rankings have been reset.
Survivor Pass Vol. 15 brings new exclusive items
Survivor Pass Vol. 15 introduces guardians from the Dream Runner faction! In the Pass's story quests, players can experience Keeper's backstory. Once all missions are completed, players will receive the face of Keeper.
