Krafton Inc has announced the first major collaboration for its latest game PUBG: New State. The battle royale has teamed up with Bugatti Rimac to introduce the Rimac Nevera – a car that boasts the fastest acceleration of any production vehicle – to Troi.

The Rimac Nevera is set to drop into New State latest this month when players can take it for a spin around Troi. To coincide with its arrival, there will be a time-limited Rimac Crate, that will contain a bunch of in-game goodies, including the Rimac Nevera in five colour variants. They are Nevera Blue, Gunpowder Grey, Prism Glow, Sunburst Red and Luminous Gold.

Discussing the collaboration, Ela Buljat, Senior Marketing Specialist at the Bugatti Rimac company said: “We are excited to collaborate with one of the world’s most popular gaming companies. When they initially told us about their futuristic in-game concept, it was a no-brainer; Rimac Nevera perfectly fits that kind of digital environment.

They added: “We look forward to reading reviews from their community and organizing online and offline activities in the upcoming months. It feels like a successful long-term partnership with great results for both sides.”

The car itself was designed in Croatia and is named after a phenomenon that occurs across the open seas of the country. A Nevera is a lighting charged storm that occurs suddenly without warning. The Rimac Nevera then is a ludicrously fast, all-electric car that boasts a staggering 1914 horsepower and is capable of hitting 258mph. That means it can cover a quarter-mile in a mere 8.582 seconds.

PUBG: New State is available now over on the App Store and Google Play. It is a free-to-play game with in-app purchases.
