PUBG Lite, a free-to-play, low-spec adaptation of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, is launching in over 50 new countries across Europe and the Middle East on October 10.
Original story continues: The game has been in open beta since January 2019 when it launched in Thailand, before being rolled out to other countries and regions throughout the year.
In addition to PUBG’s standard 100-player battle royale mode, PUBG Lite includes a new 4v4 mode in which two teams fight to reach 40 eliminations in a warehouse surrounded by shipping containers and vehicles.
It includes free and premium season passes, while an in-game currency called L-Coin can be used to purchase exclusive items.
At launch in 52 new countries in October, PUBG Lite will include English, Turkish, Portuguese (BR/PT), Spanish (LA/ES), Russian, German, French and Polish language support.
Users who pre-register for PUBG Lite by October 8 will receive free in-game items including a desert camo and weapon skins.
“Since its conception, PUBG Lite has been designed to be a version of our game that is accessible to gamers with low specification computers and laptops, while providing the same sophistication in action and gunplay experience of the original PUBG game,” said Minkyu Park, development director of PUBG Lite.
“From January 2019, we have worked hard to carefully listen to our community’s feedback to improve the quality of the game and we can’t wait to see how our newly added countries react, and how the game will continue to develop.“
