  • PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds- Guinness World Records

South Korea-based PUBG Corp., a spinoff of Bluehole that now exclusively administers "PUBG", has signed a publishing agreement with Tencent to release the "Battle Royale" shooter to the Chinese market.

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is on Steam Early Access now with a full release scheduled for later this year, and will be available on Xbox One's Game Preview program on December 12. It seems that the ongoing battle between the publisher and Chinese watchdogs has come to an end, with Tencent securing the rights to officially launch PUBG in the country after all. However, the company will work to alter the game in order to make sure it is in "accordance with socialist core values".

In doing so, Tencent has endeavoured to curb cheating and ensure the game does not get shut down by the Chinese government, following reports that the game was "too bloody" and counter to "traditional socialist core values" as reported by VentureBeat last month.

PUBG in China will therefore be "different" and "catering to the preference of Chinese gamers", according to its South Korean creator, PUBG Corp.

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.

Originally being shot down, Tencent never gave up its perusal of launching official Chinese servers for PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds. In a statement by PUBG Corp CEO C.H. Kim, the Chinese company will apparently tweak the title to be more palatable to the local players.
