PUBG Lite just launched after months of waiting eversince it was dubbed PUBG Project Thai. This free to play battle royale game by Bluehole is one of the most anticipated game release of this year despite basically being a legit PUBG M port to PC. The launch however, encountered few errors from different users and here’s every known error so far and how to fix them.
DX11 Feature Level 10.0 is required to run the engine.
This error basically means that you need a DX11 supported video card. This could indicate that your graphics card drivers are not updated. If you are at the latest version, then it means that your GPU is too old to run the game as it doesn’t have any DX11 support.
Global Shader Cache File is missing
The Global Shader Cache file is reliant on your video card. Just like the DX11 error, you need a DX11 supported video card. Updating your drivers to the latest version may help for other setups.

Known Issues with the graphics driver
As the message implies, the graphics card driver is not updated to the latest version. A simple fix is to install the latest drivers from Nvidia or AMD’s website. Older video cards might be the main cause if your driver is updated to the latest version.
