PUBG banned in China and its replacement is absolutely Bizzare
In an unfortunate news, today the game publisher Tencent has been forced to withdraw to PUBG from China after the disapproval of the Chinese government.
PUBG, a very popular game, is a pioneer of the real battle genre. Despite having a large market in China, with more than 70 million active players in the mobile PUBG, Tencent had to suspend the game by force in the country.
Tencent had to do so because of the Chinese government’s refusal to allow purchases from the PUBG mobile app. In response, Tencent replaced PUBG with an entirely new patriotic title, Game for Peace, which the publisher said “pays tribute to the blue sky warriors who guard the airspace of our country.”
What is Game for Peace?
Game for peace is a strange replacement for PUBG, meant to be acceptable to the Chinese government. The players also had their PUBG account and the statistics were automatically transferred to the new title. Some minor changes include the absence of blood and blood, and the characters sit down and say goodbye when they are killed.
Analyst Cui Chenyu said
It’s almost the same as PUBG. The gameplay, the background, the graphic design and the characters, are almost the same.
Subsequently, Game for Peace won approval for monetization in China and is now available to play.
This is what it looks like:
