PUBG Mobile Lite Launched in India: Tencent Games has now brought PUBG Mobile Lite to India, almost a year after its launch in the Philippines. The game is aimed at smartphones with lower grade specifications. PUBG Mobile Lite is now available on the Google Play Store and has a file size of 491MB. Here’s a list of the top features you need to know about PUBG Mobile Lite before you download it and start playing.
PUBG Mobile Lite: Compatibility and size
PUBG Mobile Lite is currently only available on the Android platform and has a download size of 491MB. The game is currently not available on iOS. It is built using Unreal Engine 4, which is same as PUBG Mobile.
PUBG Mobile Lite: Requirements
There are no such minimum requirements to play PUBG Mobile Lite. It can be played on pretty much any Android smartphone. However, we recommend that you play it on a smartphone running Android 4.3 Jelly Bean or higher with at least 1GB of RAM and 500MB of storage. The company states that the game will run on any device smoothly, even if the device has lower than 2GB of RAM.
PUBG Mobile Lite: Maps, players and time cap
PUBG Mobile Lite earlier only sported one map, which had a radius of 2km x 2km, where 40 players had to take each other on. However, with today’s update, PUBG Mobile Lite gets three additional maps and the player cap has been increased to 60 players.
PUBG Mobile, on the other hand, has four maps Erangel, Miramar, Sanhok and Vikendi and has a player cap of 100.
PUBG Mobile Lite games are much more fast-paced due to the lower player count and smaller maps. As of now, the game only allows players to get into a Classic mode match, which lasts for 10 minutes.
PUBG Mobile Lite: Graphics
Though both PUBG Mobile and PUBG Mobile Lite have been developed using the Unreal Engine 4, graphics don’t remain the same. PUBG Mobile Lite features a drop in terms of graphics compared to PUBG Mobile. This might have been done to make the game run smoothly on low-end and entry-level devices.
A drop in the graphics doesn’t mean a change in the gameplay. PUBG Mobile and PUBG Mobile Lite stay quite similar in terms of graphics ensuring players have a similar overall experience wherever they play any PUBG title.]
