PUBG Mobile Lite a version of the popular hit battle royale designed to work with a wider range of smartphones is now available on Google Play in "various regions" of Southeast Asia, South Asia, Africa from North and South America. PUBG Mobile, a spin-off of the popular PC and console game PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is already the world's highest grossing mobile game. He earned $ 167 million in July, according to the mobile analysis firm Sensor Tower, and accumulated more than 50 million daily players as of June. This new version is likely to only increase the enormous presence of PUBG Mobile especially when it is more widely available.
The game will have some significant changes to help it run on less capable hardware, as well as to encourage faster matches. The games will be played on a smaller map that fits 60 players, below the 100 standard players in other versions of PUBG . There will also be more loot and players can heal themselves in any position, except prone ones. And, to make firing more accurate on weaker network connections, PUBG Mobile Lite will have better aiming assistance, no bullet drop effect on longer distance shots and less weapon recoil.
PUBG Mobile Lite, developed by Chinese gaming giant Tencent and PUBG Corp., requires 490 MB of free space to download, compared to 1.6 GB for the latest version of PUBG Mobile. The application is also designed to run on devices with less than 2 GB of RAM. Tencent says the game will be available in Europe and North America and Central America "soon."
PUBG Mobile Lite is not the first version of PUBG designed for devices with less capacity. In January, PUBG Corp. began testing PUBG Lite a free version of PUBG with users in Thailand, and has since expanded the test to the regions of South Asia, the Middle East and Latin America.
As PUBG faces the continued competition of Fortnite and other popular Battle Royale and mobile games, its creators seem eager to take the game to as many platforms as possible . It is an approach that worked well for Epic Games that got $ 2.4 billion off Fortnite in total last year, and would seem to be paying for PUBG as well. The game has been downloaded more than 400 million times as of June this year, and PUBG Lite will only increase that number.
