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

In brief: The developers behind PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds have announced a dedicated team has been working on PUBG Lite in secret. The PC version is resource hungry and requires a computer with meaty specifications to play the game. The game's publisher recently opened up the beta testing for the new PUBG Lite version of the game. The image above was shared to show what the minimum and recommended specifications for PUBG Lite are.

According to sources, the early phase of PUBG Lite is available in Thailand only, which means you have to be a resident of Thailand but later on, it'll expand to more locations in the world.

In its most recent update, PUBG Corp. said that the PUBG Lite beta test has started, but is limited to players who are located in Thailand. Despite being graphically cut down, the game will still support 100-player matches with all of the other features from regular PUBG.

PUBG Lite's beta only features one map at launch, the classic Erangel, but PUBG Corp have stated that they will be supporting the free-to-play edition of the game in future, promising additional game modes will be added in the future, alongside popular snow map Vikendi. To this end, the PUBG Lite team has focused on balancing lower hardware requirements, without compromising on our quality standards. At the time of writing PUBG Mobile Lite hasn't made it to India, but let's hope that PUBG Lite does make it to the country sooner.

Higher vaccine rate attributes to healthier flu season
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) showed that three additional children died in the week ending January 19. People with flu may be able to infect others from one day before going sick to up to five to seven days after.

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 will also be adding maps and content familiar to players of the base game.

The new PUBG Lite will be a standalone title from the original PUBG.

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