PUBG was one of the most preferred and most played smartphone games in India before it gets banned. This game has garnered a lot of audience in a very short time because of its battle royale game mode and online shooting and survival gameplay. It is one of the most successful games around the world– PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds or in short PUBG, the battle royale mode of the game is the most preferred game mode in the world, other games which has Battleroyale mode wasn’t able to reach the success height of PUBG. In India, PUBG gets banned last year because of security concerns and somehow because of the violent and addictive gameplay, teens and youngsters spend most of their time playing PUBG and this was hampering their mental growth.
It was also leading them to the destructive phase of mentality where a gamer finds himself obsoleted from the society and even his/her family after losing the game, because of all these concerns government of India decided to ban this game along with certain other Chinese apps because of data breach reports and security reason of these apps. PUBG is available in two variants according to the smartphone’s specs, the PUBG MOBILE which is available for all the medium-range smartphones as well as high range smartphones, and the PUBG Lite is available for low-end smartphones (mostly those PCs/laptops which have 2GB or 1GB of RAM). PUBG lite was launched for those people who don’t have or can’t afford medium to high-end smartphones. After the launch of the game PUBG lite, it has acquired a lot of attention across the world.
The game was a success after its launch, a lot of people are still around who are using a low-end smartphone, after the availability of the PUBG lite on its download page, it has crossed a Million downloads just in a year. Although at first, the game acquired a lot of negative reviews because of limited resources and troubling gameplay, after further updates, the PUBG lite started to become stable for low-end computers. There is a lot of difference between the conventional PUBG and PUBG lite, these include Limited area and short-area radius in the PUBG mobile lite, and in battleroyale mode, there can be 40 players will play against each other, and time period has also been deducted. Apart from all these shortcomings, PUBG lite is still one of the most popular games available for low-end PCs/laptops.
But there is a piece of sad news for the gamers who like to play PUBG lite on their old version of laptop/PCs, the game will be going to shut down on 29TH April, this news came from the developer (Krafton) of the game PUBG Lite. The basic reason behind the shutting down of the game is that the game is a technically less demanding version of Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds, the news about the shutting down of the game came as another blow to the players after the ban of the game in India. Although PUBG lite wasn’t quite popular in India because most of the players prefer mobile gaming to laptop/PC gaming. One shouldn’t be confused between the PUBG MOBILE LITE and PUBG LITE because the developers have decided to shut down the lite version of PUBG available for laptops and PCs.
The PUBG MOBILE LITE will be available for download from the respective Appstore and there is no news regarding the shutdown of the LITE version of PUBG for smartphones. The shutdown has been announced for the PC/laptop version of PUBG LITE. PUBG lite was first launched in 2019 in Thailand in beta version after some time it arrives in other European countries. Just after two years of its launch, the game is going to be shut down, the developer of the game “Krafton” has said that the game will be completely shut down on April 29 from all the platforms. The official web page of PUBG lite has already mentioned the shutting down of the game and updated its customers to use their game credits before the date of the shutdown, the developers of the Game PUBG lite have also updated that the game will not receive further updates and rewards.
Krafton further stated on their official Blog page that “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 the service of PUBG Lite is scheduled to end on April 29th, 2021.” The basic reason being the shutting down of the game is said to be less popular of the game, as everyone has a smartphone and there are very few people who prefer to play PUBG lite on their laptops and PCs. In the running world, it is really hard for anyone to sit in front of their desktop or laptop and play the game, now everyone prefers to play the game on handheld devices while on the go.
The developers of the game PUBG LITE stated that the vital reason behind the shutting down of the game is its low demand among the public and gamers, that’s why the developer (Krafton) has decided to entirely pull down the game from its list. Apparently, the developers stated that the official Facebook page of the PUBG lite will continue to function even after the shutting down of the game PUBG Lite, rest all the services and games will credit will be terminated after the shutting down of the game, so the players can use their every services and credit before the shutting down of the game, which is April 29. For the time being, shutting down the game is still devastation for those limited number of people who used to play PUBG lite on their Laptops/PCs. But in the long run, the shutting down of the game won’t affect the game company because PUBG lite was among the least popular game of all the PUBG game variants.
As the developers have already announced that they are coming with a totally revamped PUBG game that is PUBG: NEW STATE (it will not be the sequel of the game PUBG but a totally new game going to be introduced by the developers of the PUBG), the gameplay of the new game is set in the futuristic world, that is 2051 and according to the game trailer, the new games seem pretty promising and futuristic with new advance weapons and vehicles. In conclusion, we can say that the news of shutting down the game is not good for the people who have low-end computers but the low popularity was the culprit for the bringing down of the game from the server. All we can hope that in the future developers will introduce a game similar to PUBG lite for the low-end PCs and laptops because there are still people around who own an old version of laptop and desktop and they can’t afford high-priced computers and laptops, packed with premium specifications.
