Ever since PUBG Lite – a free version of PUBG with trimmed down graphics and gameplay designed for weaker hardware – was announced for PC, it has attracted a lot of excitement. Fans of the battle royale, both those who play on their phones and those who use Tencent's Gaming Buddy (an emulation software that allows PUBG Mobile to be played on PC), cannot seem to wait for the full release of this Lite version, though it appears their patience is wearing thin.

The game was originally released as a beta test in Thailand and it seemed to run very smoothly on low-end PCs and laptops. Right now it only has one map, Erangel, but the others will surely be added in the near future. The user interface (UI) of Lite is similar to PUBG PC, while its graphics are somewhat like what we’d see from PUBG Mobile played on Tencent’s emulator.

Of course, being a beta version, it does have a couple of bugs, which the developers are already working on. Still, it is obviously going to expand to other regions soon. Already it has got out of Thailand and arrived at 4 other countries including Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, and the Philippines. A look at a notice on the game’s official website also tells us that it is also coming to Bangladesh, Cambodia, Brunei, Myanmar, and Laos.

With that being the case, we can believe that PUBG Lite will come to India sooner or later, as the country is one of the markets with the highest demand right now. So, why hasn’t it? Well, the primary reason is probably that the servers are limited. If the game is released in India, it will surely receive hundreds of thousands of downloads at the same time, so it's crucial that its servers are stable enough to handle such a high influx of players. Right now, the best course of action is to wait until the developers feel like the game is ready to come to India.
