PUBG could get a 'socialist makeover' in China

PUBG Corp is planning to perform a stable game service such as the expansion of the server and enhancement of anti-hacking programs, through the contract with Tencent, the company which has been successfully developing and servicing a diversity of major online games.

NetEase's "Terminator 2" and "Wilderness", survival games similar to PUBG, are the No. 1 and No. 3 most downloaded free mobile games in China, the world's biggest video game market, analytics firm App Annie's data shows.

Chinese content authorities were said to have considered blocking "PUBG's" release because the game "severely deviates from socialist core values".

"PUBG is now the most popular survival shooter game and is enjoyed by users all over the world", Tencent senior vice president Steven Ma said.

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds will officially make its way to China, thanks to a publishing partnership between the game's developer Bluehole and the Chinese internet giant Tencent.

The PUBG game where players fight for survival on a deserted island is now the world's top-selling videogame, having shipped more than 20 million copies since its launch in March.

In doing so, Tencent has endeavoured to curb cheating and ensure the game does not get shut down by the Chinese government, following reports that the game was "too bloody" and counter to "traditional socialist core values" as reported by VentureBeat last month. "We will also offer a different, fun experience on PC", Steven Ma, Senior Vice President of Tencent, said in a statement provided to Glixel.
