Tencent Shutters PUBG Mobile in China & Releases 'Game for Peace' Battle Royale In Its Place

Tencent has shuttered the closed beta for PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds Mobile in China, though the news isn't all gloom and doom. Players can transfer their accounts to Game for Peace that "pays tribute to the blue sky warriors that guard our country's airspace". Game for Peace has been developed specifically to get through China's strict games vetting process by scaling down violence, removing most blood effects and defeated players rising "to wave goodbye".

The move allows Tencent to monetize the game, an approval through the regulatory agency that was approved in April.
