The company that owns popular online multiplayer game PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG), Tencent, announced in August last year that a Mobile Lite version of the game is in development.
Almost an entire year later, a lite version is now available to download for Indonesian Android users, with the goal of making PUBG more widely available to interested players with lower-end smartphones.
This new version will not be too heavy for smartphones as the minimum RAM required is under 2GB, and it will take less than 500MB of space.
In order to cut down on the heavy requirements for this game to run, developers had to remove some features as well as minimize the game as much as possible. This includes a shrunk-down version of the playable terrain in order to minimize the required graphics processed by the smartphone.
This shrunken-down map also changes the pace of the game. In a much smaller space, the action becomes much faster. A normal PUBG game could feature up to 100 players, but the lite version will only hold 40 players at the most.
So, besides a difference in graphics and features, PUBG Mobile Lite also provides a slightly different gaming experience. It also runs on a different server so that players from the two games do not encounter each other and create server issues. (sal/kes)
