PUBG lite:

Good News for those PC users who don’t have high-end computers for PUBG.

PUBG has recently launched a whole new PC version called PUBG lite.

The Difference between PUBG and PUBG Lite:

Apart from its lack of availability in the whole world, PUBG Mobile and PUBG lite are pretty much the same.

Following are the few difference which force tencent to make a lighter version of PUBG.

Size of the Game:

As the name suggest, PUBG Lite is ment to work on lower end smart phones. Tencent has reduced the game size to 388MB which is nearly 4.6 times lower than the main PUBG Mobile (1.8GB).

Number of Players:

In PUBG lite, only 40 Players can play the game in a Map. The Regular PUBG still entertains a maximum of 100 Players. So this makes PUBG Lite less competetive than the original one.

Map Size:

The main reason which helps reduce the size of the game is a much smaller Map.

Yes, the map of PUBG lite is much smaller than the original version. Only 2KM x 2KM Map size is available.

Game Modes:

The lite version includes all the basic modes of the game i.e. squad, duo and solo matches in TPP.

Graphics and Sound Effects:

The gameplay, visual and sound effects are the same as the original PUBG Mobile, so you will get nearly the same experience as the original version.

So, if you want to start playing PUBG, its good to start with PUBG Lite.
