On the very first day, the players are now complaining of bricking issues.
The PUBG New State users took to Twitter to report about the bricking problem. Many users who have upgraded to Android 12 have encountered bricking soon after the battle royal game got launched. Not only this, other Android users are facing similar issues.
200 countries including India where the PUBG: New State debuted today devices got bricked. The users complain of the devices not booting up and some players reported that the issue arises when the PUBG New State users are asked to sign in as a guest or with a social media account.
Gadget Bridge’s editor in chief during his testing also encountered heating issues and glitches.
Almost got chicken dinner in the very first game. The graphics have become better, but the game is glitchy right now. For instance when driving, the car suddenly went under water or would glitch. Lot of new cars. #PUBGNEWSTATE #PUBGNEWSTATEINDIA #pubg_newstate #PUBGMOBILE pic.twitter.com/xgpG7zX5rt

Tipster Mukul Sharma’s Oppo Find X2 also got bricked and he took to Twitter warning others before they installed the game.
Alright.#PUBGNEWSTATE has bricked my device already.
Those on Android 12, be a bit careful I'd say.
