The content amendments are core to the deal, as China's regulators panned the game last month for being too violent, stated the report.
Tech, media, and gaming powerhouse Tencent has announced today that it will handle the publishing rights to PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds in China.
With China getting their own servers and rules that will keep the game in service, everyone involved in PUBG, including the corporation, Tencent, Chinese national and all other worldwide players, benefit from this change.
The company will make changes to ensure the game is consistent "with socialist core values, Chinese traditional culture and moral rules", according to a recent statement. "We will do our best to present a great game to the Chinese users in close cooperation with the company".
