How to Download PUBG Mobile Lite outside Philippines

The Android version of PUBG was launched in February, this year and as expected, it quickly topped the charts on Play Store in the Top Games category.

The demand that the game has witnessed on the Play Store in the last 7 months is a sign that its worth is much bigger than the present 50,000,000+ installs.

The worth that PUBG Mobile has, has not gone unnoticed by the game’s developer – Tencent Games – who have now launched a Lite version of the game to extend its user base beyond the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean users with 36 MB of free mobile space.

[With the launch of this PUBG Mobile Lite version, Tencent Games has now joined the Lite bandwagon of Spotify and Instagram, know the details of both – Spotify Lite and Instagram Lite]

The catch* The Lite version is only available for download in the Philippines as of now. However, Aneesh Aravind, the General Manager of Tencent Games said “We are currently testing out the LITE version of PUBG Mobile and optimising it for Indian networks and devices, post successful testing we will release it in India in the near future.”

But then, it’s a matter of future. Before we look into the process of downloading PUBG outside Philippines, let us first look into what the new version entails.

About PUBG Mobile Lite

While the strategic move by Tencent with the launch of PUBG Mobile Lite version has been to keep both the versions of the game 90% alike, there are some notable changes between the two versions. Let’s look at them –

  • The lite version of the game is just 30MB in size and is compatible with Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich devices.
  • Instead of 100 Players, you will have to face-off with 40 players.
  • The map is much smaller, which makes it possible for devices to render less graphs.
  • The version only has the classic battle royale mode, while the Arcade mode is presently missing from the Lite version.

All of these changes would inevitably result in fast and probably a lot more action-packed matches, which definitely is a great plus when switching between one app and the other on the go.

Now that you know all about the PUBG Mobile Lite Version, let us now look into the process of downloading the PUBG Mobile Lite version in your country, even if you are outside Philippines.

How to Download PUBG Mobile Lite Outside Philippines

The Lite version on Play Store is presently only available for download in Philippines. But for those who cannot wait to get their hand on the Lite version, an APK of the game has been launched. You can find the APK file on APKPure. But even this APK comes with a glitch.

If you download and run the APK on your device, it will force stop. So, for it to work properly, you will have to install a VPN app off of the play Store and set the location to Philippines.

So there you have it. The method to download and play PUBG Lite irrespective of what geographical location you belong to.

*Disclaimer* – Since the APK is coming from a third party developer and not by Tencent, be wary of the effect it can have on your mobile device.
