"PUBG is now the most popular survival shooter game, and is enjoyed by users all over the world", said Steven Ma, Senior Vice President of Tencent.

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. Alterations will be carried out by Tencent, the game's publisher in the country, to align with "socialist core values", reports Sina Tech.

Thankfully, PUBG Corp. and Tencent have finally come to an agreement that will see Tencent publish and PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds in China, as announced in a press release.

Last month, the Chinese content watchdog criticised PUBG for deviating from "socialist core values". As Reuters points out, other games have made similar adjustments to their Chinese versions by adding red banners and government slogans into in-game levels.
