The light version of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) will be discontinued at the end of this month. Now no version of PUBG Lite game will be available for download on all platforms. In the release, Pabji mentioned that the PUBG Lite website has been shut down and after that the service will end on April 29 and player support will end on May 29.
In the press release, Krafton said, “We are deeply grateful for the passion and support from the amazing number of fans of PUBG LITE who were with us.” During the difficult times of the COVID-19 pandemic, we hope PUBG LITE was able to provide our fans with a fun way to stay safe. It has also been mentioned in the release that the users of the game will be able to play the game as they used to play. In addition, they can spend game credits, including in-game currency / in-app purchase, until the end of the game. However, the company has decided to keep the PUBG LITE Facebook page live even after its closure.
In December last year, it was announced that the L-Coin top-up system would be scrapped and it would become a 100 percent free game. Top-up channels were also called on 15 December.
The game was launched globally in late 2019, to make it playable on lower-end Android smartphones (lower-end Android smartphones) and entry-level PCs without a dedicated graphic card. PUBG Mobile was banned in India last year along with other Chinese apps, but the PC version was still available to players. PUBG Lite had over 100 million downloads on the Google Play Store.
