Many online games are becoming more and more popular on a daily basis. Some of them are LoL, Counter-Strike, Fortnite, etc. Still, one game that definitely deserves to be on the list of the most popular games is – PUBG. (PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS)
This was primarily a mobile game. Users were only able to play it via their mobile devices. Still, since December 2017, gamers are able to play this game on their PC as well.
It was good news for people that were big fans of this game. The system requirements for a mobile version were not low. Many people were not able to run this game because of that. A small percentage of people testified that they had to delete all other apps to run this game. Fortunately, things have changed.
People usually invest a bit more money on their PC devices. That’s why most of us have stronger features on their computer. So, let’s analyze together the system requirements of this app
PUBG PC System Requirements (Recommended)
Well, it would probably be better to start with the recommended system requirements. The majority of people would want to fully enjoy the features of this game.
When we talk about Operating System, there are no excuses. The recommended OS is 64-bit Windows 10. If you have some older device, you will definitely have to upgrade your OS. Still, the majority of the newest devices come together with Windows 10, so this should not be a problem.
The processor is another thing that should not be a problem. The minimum requirement from the user is to have Intel Core i5-6600k or AMD Ryzen 5 1600 processor. These processors are strong, but they are a common feature of most of the newest models.
Memory and Graphics could be a problem. The RAM memory that you should have is 16GB. An average computer in 2019 usually comes with 8GB RAM, so you will have to upgrade it a little. Still, this is not something that will take you a fortune. Besides, it will improve the speed and other performances of your device. When we talk about graphics, you will have 2 options – NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 3GB or AMD Radeon RX 580 4GB. These are powerful graphics and you can mostly find them in gaming computers.
There also features such as DirectX, Network, and Storage. The version of your DirectX should be 11. Except that, you will have to ensure 30 GB of available space in your storage. Logically, a basic Wi-Fi connection will ensure that you enjoy the game.
Anyway, with these performances, you will be able to reach somewhere between 60 and 80 FPS on average. The maximum FPS that you will potentially reach is 100, but there is also a minimum boundary of 45 FPS during the fights.
PUBG PC System Requirements (Minimum)
What to do if your computer is not a machine? Well, that should be the problem as well. The minimum system requirements of this game are not high at all. We suppose that 90% of users will be able to play this game on PC. So, let’s analyze one by one.
First of all, we need to say that DirectX, Network, and Storage requirements are the same. Your PC will need to have at least 30 GB of available space and DirectX version 11. Still, these are basic features you won’t have a problem with that.
There is more good news when we talk about minimum system requirements. You will be able to play this game on 64-bit Windows 7 and Windows 8.1. A big number of people do not want to install Windows 10 because it has strong requirements. They use alternatives and that would be enough to run and play this game.
PUBG can also work with 8GB RAM memory. We do not want to say that you will be able to enjoy the full potential of this game. Yet, this won’t slow down the game a lot. There will maybe be small bugs, but it is not something that will disturb you a lot.
Processor? You are lucky because your computer does not need to have the strongest performances. The game will also work with Intel Core i5-4430 and AMD Fx-6300. When you look closer, these are the features that most of the PCs have.
With these requirements, you will be able to reach somewhere between 40 and 50 FPS on average. The maximum reach is around 70 FPS which is a great result. Still, during the intense fight, your FPS can drop down to 25-30 FPS.
In the end, we can conclude that PUBG is not a demanding game. The majority of similar games have higher system requirements.
Is It Free?
If you already played PUBG on your mobile, you will think that PUBG is a free game for PC. Yet, things are different. The mobile version of this game is free, but the PC version isn’t.
Many people were confused when PUBG Corporation announced that this game will cost $29.99. We suppose that PC users were not happy because of that. For instance, Fortnite, which is a direct competitor to this game, does not charge for the PC version of the game. But, when you look closer, this is not expensive at all.
For example, playing PUBG on your mobile is free. Still, if your mobile can’t support the system requirements of the game, you will have to buy a new one. On the other hand, you will spend $30 for the game and you will have unlimited access on your PC.
What do you think? Is spending $30 on PUBG worth it? We would say it is. Buying a new mobile is not something we do quite often. People usually use the same device for 2 or 3 years. The game you buy will remain there forever.
We suggest that you wait for holidays such as Black Friday and Thanksgiving Day. There is a big chance you will be able to purchase this game at a cheaper price.
