PUBG Mobile adds new gameplay management tool to help promote “healthy gaming”

Tencent has rolled out a new update in PUBG Mobile that promotes “healthy gaming” with young players

Reported by GameSpot, the new gameplay management tool sends reminders to users under the age of 18 to take a break after extended play sessions.

Players must also acknowledge an advisory before entering the game. According to Tencent, PUBG Mobile is the first mobile game to adopt a system of this nature.

No information was given on whether the system will make its way to the console or PC version of the game.

Proactive step

"Today's announcement is a proactive step in ensuring that hundreds of millions of players worldwide can continue to enjoy PUBG Mobile in a sustainable manner,” said Tencent executive Vincent Wang.

The feature is currently live in Egypt, Kuwait Nepal, Indonesia, India, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates, however will be arriving in other regions too.

Recently Tencent shut down PUBG Mobile in China substituting it with a “peaceful” replacement called Game for Peace.
