A couple of years back, PUBG Corporation released a graphically light and free version of their popular battle royale game. It was called PUBG Lite and was made to be ran on machines that were not able to handle the graphic fidelity of the original title. Sadly, the game is getting shut down come April 29th, as confirmed today by the game's publisher, Krafton.

The publisher released a statement to the game's website today announcing its closure. As of right now, PUBG Lite is no longer available for download. The servers will be shut down for existing players on April 29th.

PUBG Lite was only able to be downloaded from the PUBG Launcher. It featured significantly lighter system requirements compared to the original game. Sadly, it also had its own servers, meaning that there was no cross-play between PUBG Lite and PUBG. A statement has been placed on the main PUBG Lite page that reads as follows.

We are deeply grateful for the passion and support from the astounding number of PUBG LITE fans that have been with us. During the strenuous times of the COVID-19 pandemic, we hope that PUBG LITE was able to provide our fans a fun way to stay safe.

Unfortunately, we have made the difficult decision to close service after much deliberation and the time has come for our journey to end. We regretfully inform you that service of PUBG LITE is scheduled to end on April 29th, 2021 (UTC).
