PUBG gives Game for Peace a chance in China


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?


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


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