LOS ANGELES – May 14, 2019 – PUBG MOBILE is introducing a new “Gameplay Management” system that encourages players to enjoy a sustainable and balanced PUBG MOBILE experience. Upon logging in for the first time, players will be asked to confirm their age to activate the Gameplay Management system. Players under the age of 18 will have to acknowledge a gaming advisory before they can start the game. Also, the system will use pop-up notifications about game time to reminder players to rest or stop the game.
The Gameplay Management system has been deployed recently in certain areas, including Asian and North African countries, including Indonesia, India, Nepal, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Kuwait, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, and Egypt. The Gameplay Management system will deploy in other markets in stages. PUBG MOBILE will soon be one of the first mobile games to deploy a Gameplay Management system on a global basis. Releasing globally in various stages, the system will help gamers make informed time management choices when playing PUBG MOBILE. As PUBG MOBILE grows into one of the world’s most trending mobile games, it is devoted to providing a better gaming environment and being proactive in building a balanced and sustainable online gaming ecosystem.
