PlayerUnknown Battlegrounds, popularly known as PUBG, recently made its way to smartphones.

Now, the Chinese internet giant Tencent has officially launched a lighter version of the survival game. The game dubbed PUBG Mobile Lite is currently available in Philippines only. While the game is available for download on the Google Play Store, it can only be downloaded in select regions. The game is only 30MB in size, as seen on the Play Store, and is compatible with smartphones running Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich.

The game available on Google Play Store is listed as version 0.5.0 and the Quint reports that the game will soon be available in India as well. India and other South East Asian markets are the primary markets for the lightweight version of PUBG Mobile. India, in particular, has a large user base when it comes to smartphones in the sub-Rs 10,000 price segment.

The introduction of PUBG Mobile Lite in the country will lead to more users joining the gameplay, even if their device does not belong to high-end of the price segment. As with any game launching on Android this year, there are a number of fake profiles on Google Play Store that are claiming to offer the lite version of PUBG Mobile.

The main version of PUBG Mobile weighs in at 2GB in download size and demands a lot of graphics processing, the lite version launched by Tencent does away with those demanding workloads. It is aimed at those who want to experience the game without having to buy a premium smartphone that supports such an experience.
