Dubbed PUBG Lite, this game is now being tested in Thailand and a blog post by the developers says the game will make it to other countries soon. And if it's possible to make the game run reasonably well on an Intel HD4000 chipset, why not focus the effort on the existing version, rather than splitting into separate branches?
"Our goal for PUBG Lite is simple: Deliver the Playerunknown's Battlegrounds experience to players in areas where the core game's required specifications are more hard to achieve due to the hardware available", the announcement says.

The post ends with an assurance that even though PUBG Lite is built for low-end hardware, it is just as good as PUBG on Steam. Even making it free isn't a surprise to me since the mobile version is doing very well. In comparison, the original PUBG required an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 and AMD Radeon R7 370 2GB in order to run the game, while the recommended graphics card is listed as either a GeForce GTX 1060 3GB or AMD Radeon RX 580 4GB. PUBG Corp does state it is looking to expand PUBG Lite into different territories, but this may only be for other Asian markets instead of a worldwide release.
