Since the launch in 2018, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) has become a rage in the global gaming scene across mobile and PC platforms. But, it was only enjoyable on expensive devices, as it required top-of-the-line processor and graphics engine to offer seamless user experience. Now, the popular game will soon be made available for low-end desktops and laptops.
"Since last October, we have started CBT(Closed Beta Test) and run multiple FGTs(Focus Group Test) from most countries in SEA regions to make sure that the game can be run smoothly even on low specification PC. Finally, our effort paid off and we have made the game to be playable even on low specification requirements like computers and laptops with integrated graphics," PUBG Lite Team said in a statement.
Though the PUBG Lite runs on low-end devices, it will still offer almost same experience of playing the original version such as Erangel island in the black sea with Nuclear power plant, submerged city, swamp, mountain areas and other stuff. Also, it will offer exclusive gunplay, quality-of-life features, unique game contents, as well.
The company has also announced that the PUBG Lite, once it goes live to all public in coming weeks will available for free and remains so for life. Gamers will be able to play Solo/Duo/Squad in TPP mode in PUBG Lite.

|OS||64-bit Windows 7, 8, 10||64-bit Windows 7,8 & 10 series|
|CPU||2.4GHz Intel Core i3||2.8GHz Intel Core i5|
|GPU||Intel HD Graphics 4000||NVIDIA Geforce GTX 660/ AMD Radeon HD 7870|
