PUBG Lite Open Beta Kicks Off Today

Vikendi will be added to PUBG Lite in a future update

And if it's possible to make the game run reasonably well on an Intel HD4000 chipset, why not focus the effort on the existing version, rather than splitting into separate branches?

These will be the requirements in order to play. While this is no big deal for gamers who have access to a powerful computer with dedicated gaming hardware and lots of money, it is out of reach for many who don't have access to both.

PUBG will have its own development team for the free version, which will create exclusive content, like maps and other features that will eventually appear in the paid version of the game, The Verge reports. Bluehole has made many optimisations and gotten rid of some of the features to make it compatible with low-end PCs.

"Deliver the PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS experience to players in areas where the core game's required specifications are more hard to achieve due to the hardware available". Once PUBG Lite is live, it will certainly find its way onto work and school PCs as a productivity killer. PUBG LITE will be free to download and play for players on PC. Players will able to play as Solo or in Duo mode with another player.

In the blog post, the developers mentioned that PUBG Lite was launched on January 10, 2019 in Thailand.

Vikendi will be added to PUBG Lite in a future update. Over the course of time, more weapons and vehicles will be added as well.

China's Economy Slows to Lowest Level in almost 30 YEARS
China adjusted its economy and maintained medium-to-high-speed growth, showing resilience as the world's second largest economy . The World Bank report produced earlier this month warned of "storm clouds" with lower growth expected in the major economies.

Stay tuned for more such stories.

PUBG Lite is cut down in the ways you'd expect, at least for now.

An official announcement has turned up on the website for the PUBG Lite beta test in Thailand. However, one can use a VPN to try out the game.

That said, we can't imagine PUBG Lite will be limited to such a small playerbase for long.

Alas, while beta testing for PUBG Lite is already open, there is one caveat.
