Using A VPN
Now, this can be a bit quirky because using a VPN has its advantages and shortcomings. I will explain in simple words. If you are in a region where PUBG Lite is unavailable officially, then using a VPN will help you out. You can change your IP address to some server in some other country where the game is already available. You can easily enjoy the game.
However, if you are already using a VPN set to some other region where the game has not released, then the official servers will classify your device belonging to the region where the game is not supported. Again, you get the message that the PUBG Lite is not available in your region.
Now, you must be understanding that if you use a VPN, make sure you are setting it to the region where the game is already available. Hence, the PUBG servers will not be confused about your whereabouts.
Set the Correct Time Zone on your Device
Every device got Time Zone settings on them and PCs are no exception. You have to change your timezone to automatic. Here are the steps.
- On your Windows search box to type the following Date & Time Settings. Click Open
- In the settings there will two options: Set Time Automatically and Set Time Zone Automatically
I must remind you that the automatic timezone settings will not work and show a different timing if you switch on your VPN.
So, that’s all you need to troubleshoot if you experience the PUBG Lite is unavailable in your region. I hope that this guide was informative.
