PUBG Lite is a lightweighted version that can be played on PC’s with less powerful hardware. But it requires a little tweeking before you can play it. It was launched in october 2018 named as Project Thai only for users of Thailand that too on invite basis only.

This closed project was limited to 100 players and has since been renamed to PUBG Lite and is now open to all users in Thailand. The gameplay is still same where 100 players parachute on an island (currently just Erangel), loot weapons, med kit, painkillers and other necessary items for fighting, and kill others in order to become the last man standing.

In case you’re not using WIN10, you can Google about the tutorial on How to Change your PCs location followed by your windows.
  2. After that, click on the ‘Set default’ button under the ‘Default Location’ option to change the location.
