Following the huge success of PUBG on PC, since it’s launch, Tencent had released a Mobile Version of its massively successful game. Then Fortnite happened, took over the market by a storm and also happened to conquer the console market as well from the clutches of console exclusives. Now Tencent has launched a PUBG mobile lite version for mobile with low RAM.
What we know so far
Recently Epic Games has released a Mobile version of Fortnite with initial launches on iOS platform to cater the high-end requirements of the game. And now Epic is pushing to Android with launches in a few Samsung Galaxy devices; bypassing Google Play Store which could potentially cost $50 million a year for Google. While PUBG whose mobile version is currently playable/enjoyable on mid-high end devices, Tencent has launched a newer and Lite Version of PUBG mobile for low-end devices to rival the competition Forntite’s Android release could pose.
India, the big country as it is, has a huge population and also has millions of users with mobiles under the 10k-15k category. Which is why this launch seems to be more targeted towards the Asian audience where Budget Androids thrive to the core of the nation. To capture this massive audience, PUBG Mobile Lite is just icing on the cake. Having learned a lot from nearly 2 years of fixing bugs on PC and a stable Mobile version, the Lite version could easily attract the masses with its addictive gameplay.
About PUBG Mobile Lite
The game is so Lite that it literally is of 30 MB. When asked about the game’s release in India, Tenecent replied: ” We are currently testing out the LITE version of PUBG Mobile and optimizing it for Indian networks and devices, post successful testing we will release it in India in the near future”. Currently, the game is available only in the Philippines, and after some field tests, it will be rolled out worldwide.
The game currently features 40 man lobby, being parachuted down to a 2*2 km island, scout for resources to survive/ kill and be the last man standing. Such a small lobby would make the game more fast-paced and short timed. Currently, at 50,000 downloads, the game is rated 4 star on Play store with 3000+ reviews.
