The game that has taken the world by storm, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, will be expanding its free version from mobile to PC
The game, better known by its abbreviation PUBG, was first released on PC in March 2017 with a price tag of about RM75 before a free version came to mobile about a year later.
A free version, called PUBG Lite, was released in several Southeast Asian countries in February this year.
Now, it will be expanding to 52 more countries on 10 October, reported AFP Relaxnews.
The free PC version is playable on most computers even if they are five to six years old
The original PC version is known for its system-intensive requirements, but the new PUBG Lite can run smoothly on a 2.4GHz Core i3 CPU, 4GB of RAM, and Intel HD 4000 integrated graphics.
PUBG Lite can be seen as a direct response to the game's greatest competitor, Fortnite, which both now have the same minimum system requirements.
Fortnite was released four months after PUBG back in 2017, but the former was free since the very beginning.
Other than the classic 100-player battle royale, PUBG Lite will also feature a four-versus-four (4v4) mode where both teams fight to reach 40 eliminations
Although it is a free game, there are also purchasable season passes where players will be bestowed with more missions and rewards
