Tencent will distribute PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds in China “with socialist values”
Tencent has secured the rights to distribute PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds in China, reported Reuters. This follows news that the company wanted to acquire the game’s developer, Bluehole. To appease Chinese regulators, Tencent said it will make adjustments to the game’s content and ensure “they accord with socialist core values”.
The content amendments are core to the deal, as China’s regulators panned the game last month for being too violent, stated the report.
The deal between Tencent and Bluehole will also see an official Chinese server brought online.
