Games like PUBG and Fortnite can be demanding in terms of hardware requirements due to the battle royale nature of the game which would require the device it’s played on to render a lot of graphics at the same time. This is why Fortnite for Android’s specs have essentially precluded it from lower-end Android phones.
Now just because you can’t afford a high-end smartphone, does that mean you should be punished for it by now being able to use certain apps or play certain games? That’s what publisher Tencent doesn’t want, and have since launched PUBG Mobile Lite. As the name would suggest, this is a “lighter” version of the game that has been designed for lower-end Android smartphones.
