PUBG Corp is Beta Testing its Free, Low Spec Version Titled PUBG Lite

PUBG Lite is a free version of the game that will reduce the amount of power needed to run the hit battle royal title.

According to PC Gamer, PUBG Corporation is testing a different version of the hit battle royal game Playerunkown’s Battlegrounds titled PUBG Lite. This version will reduce the hardware requirements for the game and will also be free.

In the announcement released on their website, the team stated their goal for PUBG Lite:

“Deliver the PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS experience to players in areas where the core game’s required specifications are more difficult to achieve due to the hardware available. To this end, the PUBG LITE team has focused on balancing lower hardware requirements, without compromising on our quality standards. The end result is a build that is playable even on computers and laptops utilizing integrated graphics.”

These will be the requirements in order to play.

Minimum PC Specs:

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

Recommended:

  • OS: Windows 7/8/10, 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i5 2.8GHz
  • RAM: 8GB
  • Graphics: Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 or AMD Radeon HD 7870
  • HDD: 4GB

PUBG Lite will be a standalone product and has its own dev team that will make content and quality of life features exclusive to the game. They will also be adding maps and content familiar to players of the base game.

The beta test is only available in Thailand and will feature the games very first map, Erangel. The beta will only include Solo/Duo/Squad in third-person mode.

As a big fan of the game, I am happy to see that the team is trying to bring the title to a much wider audience. Even though I play primarily play on Xbox, I have popped in from time to time on my PC, and boy does my PC not like running this game. So, it is not a surprise to me that they are trying to create a lite version. Even making it free isn’t a surprise to me since the mobile version is doing very well.

Playerunkown’s Battlegrounds is currently available for PC, Xbox One, and PS4. If you have still not picked the game up, you can grab the game for Xbox One right here through Amazon.
