PUBG Lite may have been writing for some time. The free version, the low-spec version of Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds gave up its game currency in November 2020, making it completely free. Now, the development team has issued a notice stating that the game will be permanently closed on April 29.
The announcement was short and did not provide much explanation for the end:
We are very grateful for the enthusiasm and support of the many fans of PUBG LITE who are with us. In the difficult time of the COVID-19 pandemic, we hope that PUBG LITE can provide our fans with a safe way of entertainment.
Unfortunately, after careful consideration, we made the difficult decision to close the service, and it was time to end our journey. We regret to inform you that the service of PUBG LITE is scheduled to end on April 29, 2021 (UTC).
New downloads of the game have been closed on March 30 and are no longer available. The closure of the game itself will take place at 5 AM UTC/6am BST on April 29th.
PUBG Lite aims to “play even on computers and laptops that use integrated graphics.” Therefore, the game looks inferior to the full fat version of PUBG, but when run on a computer with dual-core CPU, 4GB RAM and no graphics card, the game is almost the same as other games, which is far from the specifications of the old version of the PC. . game.
Lite was launched in parts of Asia in early 2019 and finally entered Europe in October of the same year. I think this shutdown will seriously affect players in areas where it is difficult to obtain higher-spec PCs.
Remember when we once called PUBG “Plunkbat”, people were always angry for us? It feels about a billion years ago.
