Although Fortnite is currently leading this field, the rage for battle royale games started with the release of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds for PC and continued with the development of PUBG Mobile, the version adapted and optimized for mobile devices, whether Android or iOS.
Unfortunately, the size and graphics of this game in which we had to survive whatever it took on an island fighting against dozens of enemies with the very few resources available, made it impossible for many users with low-end phones to enjoy the battle royale excitement.
All the PUBG intensity packed into a tiny and lightweight app.
Luckily enough, the guys at Tencent have partially solved this problem by developing a lighter version, PUBG Mobile Lite, so that anyone can have a go at their franchise game and while they're at it, they can take a dig at their rivals at Epic Games that, for the time being, are only allowing access to Fortnite for high-end Samsung Galaxy phones.
Differences between the full and lite versions of PUBG Mobile
- The installation size is reduced to about 30MB.
- Works on mobile devices with just 1GB of RAWM.
- The size of the map has been dropped to not overload the phone.
- Compatible with more devices as it works on Android 4.0.3 and above.
- The number of rivals is also reduced from 99 to 39.
- Lower graphical quality, removing the HD, HDR, and UltraHD options.
- Fewer weapon possibilities as the third slot is removed.
Apart from that, we can enjoy the full experience of playing one of our favorite battle royale games without having to spend too much money on a new phone.
