krafton, a South Korean gaming giant on Thursday said that it will host its first official New State Mobile esports event in Korea from February 5-19 2022, with a prize pool of more than $250,000.
During this event, players will exclusively play New State Mobile’s new BR: Extreme Mode, which launched globally on Android and iOS last week as part of the game’s major January Update.
The New State Mobile Open Challenge is the first esports event Krafton has planned for New State Mobile in 2022, with plans to host more global events in the future.
The goal of all upcoming events is to continue supporting the game’s community of highly-skilled players who enjoy intense, competitive and unique battle royale gameplay.
New State Mobile Open Challenge Schedule and Structure: For all qualified players in Korea who are at least 15 years old, the event will be held both online and offline. The current schedule is as follows:
February 5, 6, 12, 13: Online Open Qualifiers
February 15-18: Group Stage (offline at IVEX Studio in Gwang-Myeong, South Korea)
February 19: Grand Finals (offline at IVEX Studio in Gwang-Myeong, South Korea).
Each match will feature eight teams of four players battling it out on the game’s new BR: Extreme Mode. The New State Mobile Open Challenge will also leverage the components of the Standard And Universal PUBG Esports Ruleset (SUPER) used by PUBG: Battlegrounds, where final standings are determined by both match “rank points” and “kill points.”
