PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is currently testing a Lite version of the game targeting less powerful PCs. PUBG Lite is currently in the testing phase and the beta version is now available to some users in Thailand. The Lite version of the game will be available for free.
PUBG Lite has been designed in a way that even the less powerful PCs are able to run it. While it still offers the amazing PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds experience that the players are looking for these days. Those devices that have iGPU will even support the latest version of the game.
The developer team has released some minimum and recommended requirements for playing the game. A storage space of 4GB and Windows 7, 8, or 10 (64-bit) is required for both of them.
As far as the minimum settings are concerned, the gamers will be able to enjoy their favourite game with a 4 GB RAM, Intel Core i3 2.4GHz CPU or equivalent, along with the Intel HD Graphics 4000.
Moreover, the recommended settings are 8 GB RAM, Intel Core i5 2.8GHz CPU, and the GPU needs to be Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 or AMD Radeon HD 7870.
The title has been extremely popular among gamers on Steam and other platforms including Xbox One. The game enjoys a huge player base all over the world. However, the game is still suffering because of the lack of optimization on low-end PCs.
It is also worth mentioning that the Chinses mega-publisher Tencent, has a 10% share in the PUBG’s global publishing company Bluehole. PUBG has a huge player base in China.
PUBG Corp also stated that they have planned quality of life features and exclusive content for PUBG Lite. Users can currently enjoy the solo, duo and squad battles in the game’s first map, third-person mode and on Erangel.
The company has been focusing on users in Asia due to its increasing popularity on the continent. Keeping in view the fact that PUBG Lite is now a standalone game with lower requirements, it’s safe to say that this title will become even more popular.
