Tencent to Localize PUBG for China

Bloody video game will get socialist makeover for China

PUBG Corp is planning to perform a stable game service such as the expansion of the server and enhancement of anti-hacking programs, through the contract with Tencent, the company which has been successfully developing and servicing a diversity of major online games.

Last month China's content regulator criticized the violence in PUBG, saying it would likely be blocked because it "severely deviates from socialist core values".

"We will further highlight the teamwork and fair play spirit, making sure it's in accordance with socialist core values and traditional Chinese cultures and moral norms", Tencent said in a statement provided by the outlet.

BJP Releases Second List Of Candidates For Gujarat Polls
The BJP has already announced 106 candidates out of the total 182 seats in the two lists that have been released so far. Bambhaniya's statement came after his meeting with Gujarat Pradesh Congress Committee President Bharat Singh Solanki .

It's as yet unclear how localisation will actually impact the popular battle royale-style shooter. "Tencent will localize and operate the game by catering to the preferences of Chinese gamers".

Reuters points out that Tencent rival Netease has inserted red banners carrying slogans such as "safeguard national security, safeguard world peace" into its title Wilderness and Terminator 2. Tencent has also partnered with other Korean game makers.

Last month's congress, which happens only twice a decade, put Chinese President Xi Jinping and his consolidation of power in the worldwide spotlight.

To avoid criticism over its upcoming release, Tencent has reportedly promised to offer "healthy, positive cultural and value guidance, especially for underage users", according to Reuters.
