PUBG is a hot and happening game right now, and even though it has fallen from the perch of the most played game in the world, it is still one of the most played. But there are certain things that hold PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds back from reaching more people. And one of the biggest problems in its way is the heavy specs that it demands from the PCs that run it.

To begin with it is a RAM hog and demands a lot from the GPU as well which makes the game not the best experience when played using anything less than a GTX 1050. But it seems the developers have finally had one of the best ideas yet and come up with a version of the game that requires very little in terms of specs to play. It is called PUBG Project Thai and is available only in Thailand as of now, but it can be downloaded to play at project-thai.pubg.com.

The minimum specification of the new PUBG Thai is not much ,they are as follows.
OS : Windows 7/8/10 64-bit
CPU : 2.4GHz Core i3
RAM : 4GB
GPU : Intel HD Graphics 4000
HDD : 4GB

As for the recommended specs, here they are:

OS : Windows 7/8/10 64-bit
CPU : Core i5 2.8GHz
RAM : 8GB
GPU : NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 or AMD Radeon HD 7870
HDD : 4GB

Besides this, PUBG Mobile is teaming up with The Planet of the Apes on its 50th anniversary and has put out posters on Twitter and at Times Square in the New York City. the poster shows what appears to be the silhouette of an ape head with the words PUBG Mobile and the tagline ‘Together Strong’.

This is a reference to the tagline from the movie and this comes at a time when ‘Planet of the Apes Specials’ comic books are being published by 20th Century Fox. Could this mean that the movie themed cosmetics are coming to the game? We’ll wait and see.
