PUBG Mobile rolls out “gameplay management” system for under-18s
Remember last week when China’s restrictive video game laws forced Tencent to (hilariously) re-brand PUBG Mobile as Game for Peace? It seems the publisher is hoping to avoid this situation occurring in other countries, as the company is introducing a gameplay management system for under-18s to “promote healthy gaming behaviours”.
As reported by Gamespot, PUBG Mobile’s latest update requires young players to “acknowledge a gaming advisory” before they boot up the game. Players under 18 will receive pop-up notifications to remind them to take a break – but the press release doesn’t specify exactly how often these will appear. Tencent claims PUBG Mobile is one of the first mobile titles to incorporate such a system.
“Today’s announcement is a proactive step in ensuring that hundreds of millions of players worldwide can continue to enjoy PUBG mobile in a sustainable manner,” Tencent executive Vincent Wang said.
