HIGHLIGHTS

The game has 10 million downloads on Google Play Store

PUBG Mobile Lite is aimed at low spec-ed entry-level devices.

We have seen the phone running smoothly on a smartphone with 1GB RAM.

It is obvious that PUBG Mobile has taken the world by storm. However, the game was not playable on all smartphones especially entry-level devices with 1 or 2GB RAM. PUBG Mobile Lite was in the works for quite some time and the game finally hit the market. The game hit the Google Play Store and, in just three days, has become the number 1 downloaded app on the Google Play Store. Numbers from the app's page on Google Play Store say it has crossed more than 10 million downloads. The highlight of the game is its ability to run on low-end devices with 1 or 2 GB RAM. 

In an official release, PUBG said, “PUBG MOBILE LITE, attracts attention by reaching the number 1 spot on the Google Play Store, within the first 3 days of launch. This is not too surprising, given the popularity of the mobile version of the game within the country. Built with Unreal Engine 4, this version of PUBG MOBILE is compatible with even more devices and optimized for devices with less RAM without compromising on the gameplay experience, which has attracted millions of fans around the world. The popularity of PUBG MOBILE LITE can be attributed to the fact that a considerable segment of the Indian smartphone market comprises of ‘entry-level smartphones’ and now thanks to the new lighter version - PUBG MOBILE LITE, this segment has access to a game which was beyond their reach.”

We at Digit ran the game on a smartphone with 1GB RAM and the game ran smoothly. PUBG Mobile Lite does make the obvious compromises. For starters, the map is smaller when compared to the full mobile version. Instead of 100 players, PUBG Mobile Lite has 60 players on the map. In terms of textures and game assets, you will notice that things like furniture and other items in the houses and hangers are missing. The terrain in the game is simpler too. Graphically, the game runs at a lower resolution. That doesn't mean the game is unplayable. The best part about PUBG Mobile Lite is the fact that the game runs butter smooth and is very responsive on the 1GB RAM device. Foliage is one key asset in the game. Players use the foliage to hide and take on unsuspecting enemies. The foliage representation in the game is good and works well for cover. Elements like smoke grenades and vehicles too work as they do in PUBG Mobile.

Needless to say, we enjoyed our experience with the game on an entry-level device.  You can check out our detailed hands-on of PUBG Mobile Lite running on a Redmi Go here. If you are new to PUBG Mobile Lite here are some tips and tricks to help you get that chicken dinner.
