PUBG gives Game for Peace a chance in China

#1

Tencent has pulled the mobile version of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds from the Chinese market and replaced it with Game for Peace. The new game is a somewhat sanitized reimagining of PUBG that swaps blood with sparks, death animations with a jaunty hand-wave, and supplies a patriotic backstory honoring the Chinese military as an anti-terrorism force. You can check out the zaniness in this video.

Are they being ironic naming this “Game for Peace” or are they being serious?

#3

It’s Chinese propaganda, so the original intention definitely is not irony.

#4

Did they at least sneak in Tibet and Taiwan maps to play on?
