PUBG enjoys immense popularity in Asia. However, the PC version requires high-end hardware, thus preventing a lot of potential and willing gamers from accessing the game.
To address this issue, a PUBG Lite version is in the works, which will run on low-end devices.
Post the launch in Thailand, the beta version of PUBG Lite will now be made available in four other countries.
