We all remember when PUBG Mobile was banned last year. However, what we seem to forget at times is that this wasn’t the only version of the game to be banned. PUBG Mobile Lite, a separate version of the game aimed at lower-powered devices, was also banned. But, while PUBG Mobile is back in the new avatar of Battlegrounds Mobile India, Krafton Inc, the developers of the game, haven’t yet confirmed anything related to PUBG Mobile Lite.
BGMI Lite Launch
PUBG Mobile Lite had its own community in India, most likely due to the fact that the game could be played by those on low-powered devices. This is also the reason why games like Garena Free Fire are so popular. However, with the return of BGMI, the hopes of fans have gone up. As mentioned earlier, Krafton Inc has kept mum, but some notable influencers have spoken up about the game’s launch. Back in October, both ‘Ghatak’ and ‘Maxtern’ had said that a ‘lite’ version of BGMI would launch. While Maxtern claimed that the game would launch soon, Ghatak noted that the game would eventually launch, albeit after a while.
Right now, it is possible that Krafton Inc already has its hands full with the impending release of PUBG New State. The game is scheduled to launch on November 11 in over 200 countries. The launch will include both Android and iOS devices. The developers note that the game will use state-of-the-art rendering technology along with a gunplay system that is on par with the PC version of PUBG: Battlegrounds. The game will also feature a number of gameplay changes that include weapon customisation, a drone store and a player recruitment system. Krafton has also confirmed that Erangel will make a return to the game along with the new Troi map.
