Note* – PUBG Lite PC is a different version of the game than the Tencent PUBG Mobile Emulator. The emulator basically allowed Windows laptop/pc users to play the Android/iOS version of the game on PC.
Also, the gameplay and graphics in the PC lite version are much better optimized for the Windows platform.

The game is made to work with low Specs PC and Laptops even without a dedicated graphics card. PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS minimum and recommended specifications are provided below.
You need an Intel Core i3 processor with 4 GB ram to run the game on your laptop or pc.

PUBG is the Most Played Game on PC
PlayerUnknown’s Battleground has broken many records, which includes beating the DOTA 2 and Counterstrike GO.

If we just convert these hours to years, it is 45000 years of playing games which is a staggering number. It means 4500 people were playing the game for 10 years straight. How much time is that !! Bewildering !!!
The Game has sold more than 10 million copies so far after its early access launch in March 2017. PlayerUnknown’s Battleground is a massively multiplayer online battle royale game where up to 100 players jump from a plane on an island and are divided into different teams.
The players explore the island for supplies and weapons and the objective for them is to kill the opponent players. With the passage of time, the free area on the island becomes less, and players come closer in open spaces for quicker encounters.
The developer Bluehole never thought that the game will become an incredible success and will beat the popular gaming titles. However, they created something which is loved by PC gamers and is topping the stat charts on steam.
The game is available for 29.99 or Rs. 999 for Indian gamers to buy from Steam. The price is also not very high, and it makes for an excellent title you may consider to add to your pool of games.
