Budding battle royale players in Thailand will no longer have to pay the entry fee to PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, as a free-to-play "lite" version of the game has launched in beta.
PUBG Lite is indeed a new product as well with the team referring to it as a "standalone product from the core PUBG game" which comes with its own team of developers as well as exclusive content and features.
The free-to-play version of the game has been under development for some time, with closed tests running in Southeast Asia since October 2018 as the company perfected PUBG Lite. As stated on the game's official site, the beta is now only available to players living in Thailand. There's no release schedule yet, but the beta is already available in Thailand and is coming to other regions soon.
PUBG Mobile has been available for free for some time now, so a free-to-play low-spec version isn't a total surprise.
The post ends with an assurance that even though PUBG Lite is built for low-end hardware, it is just as good as PUBG on Steam.
Trump delays State of the Union speech during USA government shutdown
He and four other former DHS secretaries wrote a letter to Congress and the president urging them to end the shutdown . Trump told reporters Wednesday the speech had been canceled because Pelosi "doesn't want to hear the truth".
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. PUBG LITE will be free to download and play for players on PC.
Only one map is now available in the Thailand beta test with Erangel being the chosen battleground for players to fight on, this one being the original PUBG map.
The minimum specs for PUBG Lite is a Core i3 that runs at least 2.4Ghz, with 4GB of RAM and Intel HD 4000 integrated graphics.
The developer has given out the minimum system requirements for PUBG LITE and by the looks of it, it will easily run on most budget laptops under Rs 30,000 with absolute ease. They have said they will continue to add all the features from the Steam version of PUBG, including the other maps and more gameplay modes.
