PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, better known as PUBG by all, kicked off the battle royale phenomenon earlier last year and has been all the rage ever since. It has made its way to our smartphones in the form of PUBG Mobile, followed by the launch of a slimmed-down variant called PUBG Mobile Lite as well. However, it seems like the gaming giant is looking to expand the game’s availability to more users around the world, which is why it has now launched a lightweight variant of their PC title – PUBG Lite.
What is PUBG Lite?
As the name tells you, PUBG Lite is a lightweight and slimmed-down version of the popular battle royale game – PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds that’s capable of running on PCs with less powerful hardware. It was first launched back in October last year as PUBG Project Thai and was available solely in, well, Thailand for testing – that too on an invite-only basis.
However, this closed project that was limited to 100 players has since been renamed to PUBG Lite and is now open to all users in Thailand. The core gameplay here remains the same, where 100 players drop on an island (currently just Erangel), grab some loot, and get down to fighting to be that last man standing.

PUBG Lite Gameplay Experience
Talking about the gameplay experience, well, I have been playing PUBG Lite since the day it launched and I’ve been loving it. I’m a huge fan of PUBG Mobile and the experience the game has made available to so many users, especially through its PC emulator. But, PUBG Lite is not that diluted in terms of overall gameplay and feels, as well as plays, absolutely like its PC counterpart.
The graphics and textures may not exactly be on par with the official PUBG game and the VPN creates lag and rubber-banding from time to time but it’s a joy to finally get a chance to play this battle royale title on lower-end PCs. And the best part being, it’s free to play.
