PUBG Mobile Lite was designed by Unreal Engine 4 and has a similar gameplay experience to that of PUBG Mobile. However, it is of much poorer quality. The game has action-packed and intense 10-minute matches, with 50 players landing on the island.

PUBG Mobile, on the other hand, has a longer duration of gameplay, with 100 players landing on a map. It is very resource-intensive, and as a consequence, the device engagement gets heavy. This results in more investment in the processing power, thus reducing the quality of the gameplay at the initial stages of playing, which is not the case with PUBG Mobile Lite.
