PUBG Lite 2

PUBG Corp. is releasing a version known as PUBG Lite aimed at low-spec PCs, like the ones found in internet cafes.

First came full-fat PUBG, and it was glorious. Then came PUBG Mobile, which was fine, but touch controls are a pain (and the kids are all into Fortnite on mobile).

The next logical step? Something in between the two, perhaps: a trimmed-down version called PUBG Lite, designed to be played on lower-powered PCs.

How low-powered, you ask?

Minimum PUBG Lite system requirements

OS: Windows 7, 8, 10 64-bit
CPU: Intel Core i3 2.4GHz
RAM: 4GB
GPU: Intel HD Graphics 4000
HDD: 4GB

Recommended PUBG Lite system requirements

OS: Windows 7, 8, 10 64-bit
CPU: Intel Core i5 2.4GHz
RAM: 8GB
GPU: Nvidia Geforce GTX 660, AMD Radeon HD 7870
HDD: 8GB

Oh, and there is one more requirement: you have to be in Thailand. At least, for now.

PUBG Lite is being beta tested in Thailand only, at least for the time being, which makes sense. That sort of internet cafe culture, where personal ownership of a high-powered PC is low, is the perfect proving ground for a minified version of PUBG.

What else do you need to know? Well for starters, you can only play PUBG Lite in third-person perspective, though solos, duos and four-person squads are all supported game modes. The game is also currently only available on the original map, Erangel, though PUBG Corp. does suggest that more maps will be coming down the line.

Also, PUBG Lite is free. You know, no big deal; just saving the best news until last.

Maybe we’ll see a version of PUBG on Switch yet?
