If you’re one of those who gets lost among the multiple versions of PUBG Mobile launched globally, do not worry: you’re not alone. But since Tencent have decided to help us a little in this task since the Chinese version of PUBG for Android has changed its name: Game For Peace is the new title of the game known as PUBG Mobile Battlefield. A modification of the most curious that also involves some news in the playable.
Renaming to PUBG by Game For Peace not only corresponds to a somewhat unusual rebranding task, but there is a great reason for this: Tencent can now monetize its game in China. The company has been waiting for more than a year that their game can make a profit and now we have discovered that all this time has been in vain. Hence the dramatic change in what refers to the name and the theme itself: now we are faced with a game of anti-war, as its name exclaims from the rooftops, which pays homage to the Chinese air army.
Although at first glance the game looks like the lifelong PUBG Mobile, in our gameplay we have discovered a series of changes that modify the game experience. The first thing you will notice is that there will be no blood of any kind since when we eliminate another person, his avatar will kneel giving us a box with his belongings and will say goodbye by moving his hand. Literally.
The blue zone has also changed its operation and now it is a kind of area with little coverage. The characters that are there will not lose health but will reduce the new signal bar. If this bar reaches 0, we can not continue playing so it works identically to the health indicator. Of course, at all times we will have a countdown clock that will show us how long we can last there. To reset this bar, it will be necessary to use a kind of painkiller or drinks that can be found scattered around the map.
Another curiosity of the game is when there are only five players left in the entire game. Game For Peace will send us a message so that we can leave the game if we wish. A helicopter will arrive to evacuate the survivors of the game, while the winner will receive a birthday cake on the ground. The company has taken the new “pacifist” side of the game very seriously.
Since Tencent they have done everything possible to modify PUBG to the taste of the latest regulations in China and Game For Peace is the result. Users who have the game already installed will receive the update automatically, so do not be afraid of the change. Although the modifications could not be more curious, the truth is that the Battle Royale experience has hardly changed. In Bloomberg point out that since Tencent have even asked for advice to the military recruitment unit of China during the development of this new version of the well-known battle royale.
