PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has begun testing a new free-to-play version of the game called PUBG Lite in Thailand, which is designed to offer the popular battle royale shooter that can run on less powerful hardware than the full, paid PUBG experience.

PUBG Lite is a chance for PUBG to better compete with its biggest competitor, Fortnite. Despite coming to the battle royale genre later than PUBG’s pioneering efforts, Fortnite has become an international cultural sensation due to its low barrier of entry and the fact that the game can be played on basically any device.

PUBG Lite is a completely standalone game from the paid PUBG. The company says that there will be a separate, dedicated dev team for the free version that will work on exclusive content, including maps and other features that will eventually trickle down from the paid game.
