PUBG Corp have unveiled the hardware requirements for PUBG Lite, the company's attempt to deliver a proper PUBG experience to markets that sport mostly lower-end hardware, and true to their word, the specs are as low as they promised.
Both sets of specs list Window 7,8 and 10 operating systems, 64bit versions included. PUBG Lite's minimum specs also require a Core i3 at 2.4GHz and Intel HD 4000 integrated graphics. The game can run with just 4GB of RAM and requires 4GB of storage.
PUBG Lite's recommended specs aren't that much higher, although Intel's integrated graphics is replaced with a bit newer cards, like Nvidia Geforce GTX 660 or AMD Radeon HD 7870.
Recommended CPU of choice is i3's bigger brother Core i5 at 2.8GHz, along with 8GB of RAM and 4GB of hard disk space.
Judging from what was listed, even the most modestly priced laptops should be spinning PUBG Lite with eas, which, of course, was the initial goal.
We're yet to see, however, whether we're talking about a downscaled PUBG, the full version, or an upscaled PUBG Mobile, which have become quite different beasts in the meantime.
Note that this free-to-play game will initially be available in Thailand only but apparently, there are plans to bring it to other regions, provided it proves to be popular in the current form.
For what it's worth, there did seem to be a demand for such a product, as evidenced by a bunch of players who used emulators to play PUBG Mobile.
At the time, Tencent simply launched their own, official PUBG mobile emulator, which we still maintain was a pretty clever move. After all, for a game that's been haemorrhaging players for a while now, turning players away from the game is not something you should even be considering.
PUBG Corp reminded players that if they encounter problems getting PUBG Lite to run, they can give them a shout in the announcement's comment section and they "will try to solve your problems as soon as possible."
