The two most popular battle royal games – PUBG and Fortnite are relentlessly going head to head with each other.
While Fortnite is on the edge of releasing its Andoird version, PUBG, on the other hand, has officially rolled out a lite version for the lower end devices: PUBG Mobile Lite.
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds mobile a.k.a. PUBG mobile was initially launched in February and has garnered more than 50 million downloads on Google Play Store.
The new PUBG Mobile Lite version is targeted towards Android devices which weren’t compatible with the original PUBG Mobile.
The only big difference between PUBG mobile lite version and PUBG Mobile is that lite version can have maximum 40 players at one point in time, instead of 100 players in the full-fledged version. Also, the size of the map has been reduced.
Tencent claims the Unreal Engine 4 can deliver “jaw-dropping visual experience”, coupled with high-quality audio and 3D sound effects. But keep in mind that the game is still in beta testing so you might see minute differences in the graphics and find some performance lags as well (At least, Tencent Games tried).
The lite version is only available for users in the Philippines and there is no word on when it will arrive in other countries. For now, interested users can download the APK of lightweight games and sideload on their Android devices.
They’ll have to download its OBB file and save it in Android’s OBB folder. Also, since the game is limited to the Philippines, so a VPN service will be required to change the location.
While PUBG is doing phenomenal in Google Play Store, Epic Games’ Fortnite has decided to stay off from Google Play Store altogether.
