PUBG Lite Download - What is PUBG Lite?

Here's our explainer guide for PUBG Lite, including how to download PUBG Lite, and more.

PUBG Lite might not be available in all regions now, but it's aimed at bringing the game to a PC market on the lower technical end. In our guide explaining PUBG Lite, we'll be going over all the details you need to know about the free version of the game, how to initiate the PUBG Lite download, the regions in which the game is available, and more.

PUBG Lite Explained

PUBG Lite is a free to play version of the battle royale game, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds. Since the main version of the game on PC can be a bit technically demanding for PC setups on the lower end, PUBG Corp released this free to play version of the game, which is basically the same game, but downgraded.

PUBG Lite Maps

But don't think that because PUBG Lite is free, it sacrifices on content. You can still play on the same maps from the main game, including Erangel, Sanhok, Miramar, and the training mode, just with downgraded graphics.
