#GamingBytes: Beta version of PUBG Lite launched, details here

PUBG is one of the most popular Battle Royale games and attracts new gamers every day who want to try and win the chicken dinner.

However, the PC version of PUBG has high hardware requirements, meaning not all computers can run it smoothly.

This is why an optimized version, dubbed PUBG Lite, is being tested in beta mode for PC. We report.


Developers making PUBG PC more accessible

PUBG Corp. is testing a low-end version of PUBG PC.

The game is in open beta mode and is currently being tested in Thailand.

In a blog post, the developers have assured that the game will soon be making its way to other countries. However, at the time of writing, no time frame for the release of PUBG Lite, outside of Thailand, exists.

PUBG Lite free to play, with low hardware specifications

The developers continued, on the blog post, that PUBG Lite would have low hardware specifications, making it easily accessible to those with budget laptops and desktops.

More importantly, much like the mobile version, the Lite version would be free to play.

This would further increase the accessibility of the game.

Notably, PUBG Lite was first launched in Thailand on January 10, 2019.


Check out the minimum and optimum requirements for PUBG Lite

Minimum specifications for PUBG Lite is Windows 7, 8, or 10 64bit, Intel Core i3 2.4GHz, 4GB RAM, Intel HD Graphics 4000, 4GB disk space.

Recommended specifications are Windows 7, 8, or 10 64bit, Intel Core i5 2.8GHz, 8GB RAM, AMD Radeon HD7870 or Nvidia GeForce GTX 660, 4GB disk space.

Developers have assured that gameplay will be at par with normal PUBG version.

How to access the open beta for PUBG Lite?

Developers, through a blog post on January 24, 2019, announced open beta for PUBG Lite has gone live, meaning players can access the game now. However, since it only went live in Thailand, gamers outside the country have to use a VPN to access it.


When can PUBG Lite come to India?

PUBG Lite is the second low-end optimization of PUBG, following PUBG Mobile Lite.

The latter was made for low-end phones and launched in the Philippines. Since then, Indian gamers have eagerly awaited the arrival of the Lite version.

However, we hope PUBG Lite for PC arrives soon, in an effort to make the PC variant as popular, giving competition to free-to-play Battle Royale, Fortnite.
