PUBG is releasing a free-to-play version of the game

PUBG Lite Open Beta Launched a Free-to Play Version Optimised for Low End PCs

In comparison, the original PUBG required an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 and AMD Radeon R7 370 2GB in order to run the game, while the recommended graphics card is listed as either a GeForce GTX 1060 3GB or AMD Radeon RX 580 4GB.

The goal of PUBG Lite, other than offering a free to play version of PUBG, is to deliver the PUBG experience to players in areas where the core game's required specifications are more hard to achieve due to the hardware available.

The lite version of the game is now being tested in Thailand.

According to Game Informer, the game does appear to support other regions, although it has only been publicly announced for Thailand.

If you have a really old computer that you wish could be used to play modern battle royale games, but just can't quite handle even the lower end settings, PUBG Lite would be the answer to your prayers.

If you are excited to try out PUBG LITE on your regular laptop or desktop, you will have to wait.

The current paid version of PUBG was released in early 2017 by the subsidiary of a South Korean company called Bluehole. Based off of the current PC version, Lite resembles PUBG Mobile from its visual makeup.

Playerunkown's Battlegrounds is now available for PC, Xbox One, and PS4. However, users with at least an Intel Core i3 CPU and integrated Intel HD Graphics 4000 - in other words, at least an Ivy Bridge chip from 2012 - should also be able to run the game. That's the very minimum, of course, with the recommended specs including doubling the memory and more powerful CPUs and GPUs. Either PUBG Corp has worked miracles to optimize the game, the visual quality has been completely ruined, or they're being overly optimistic with the specs to draw players away from Fortnite.

There's some good news for PUBG players on PC.

Vikendi will be added to PUBG Lite in a future update.
