An official post on PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds' Weibo (as brought to us by Reuters) has revealed that Tencent Holdings Ltd has shut down the test version of the game in China and moved users to a new game that has regulatory approval.
The game had been changed to meet government rules in the past, but to no avail, although the new title Game for Peace has monetisation approval as of April. The difference here is that it's a game paying tribute to the Chinese air force, although it's very similar to PUBG in concept and delivery. Weibo users even report having their PUBG gaming history transferred over, including player levels.
There's also a notable absence of violence. While you're still shooting people, they don't actually die, but one Weibo user reports that the dead get up and wave goodbye rather than actually losing their lives on the battlefield.
Would you play Game for Peace?
