PUBG Lite is the company’s attempt to make the game more accessible to PC gamers. Tencent Games’ light version of PUBG PC brings with it optimisations for low-end hardware. This makes the game easy on resources.
As for the minimum requirements for playing PUBG Lite, the lighter version of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds can be played on any PC or laptop which offers minimum specifications such as Windows 7, 8 or 10 OS, 4GB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage, an Intel Core i3 processor and Intel HD Graphics 4000.
