PUBG For The Chinese Market Will Be Infused With ‘Socialist Values’

“Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds” (PUBG), the immensely popular multiplayer online video game, will soon be available in China — with some tweaks incorporating “socialist values.” 

South Korean game developer PUBG Corporation, a subsidiary of its parent company Bluehole Inc., has reportedly signed a publishing agreement with Chinese internet conglomerate Tencent to officially bring the game into the Chinese games market.
