PUBG is undoubtedly one of the most played games in the world at the time of this writing. The move to change the name from PUBG Mobile China to Game for Peace with accompanied minor tweaks in the gameplay to satisfy local laws is motivated by the desire to monetize a huge user-base in the mainland China, which would not have been possible without toeing the line prescribed by the Chinese government. And the results are in. It has recently claimed the title of world’s highest earning mobile game with the earning of more than $146 million last month as reported Financial Times, according to Verge.
PUBG for China – Now Known As Game for Peace
PUBG rose to prominence with Xbox and PC versions. Massive interest forced the developers to launch the liter mobile version for smartphone users. Until May 2019, Tencent’s PUBG Mobile was available in China under its original name. However, the maker of PUBG Mobile and PUBG Mobile Lite has shut down the previous version to replace it with a new game called Game for Peace.
The gameplay is based on a patriotic theme featuring Chinese air force that can be seen in the menu options. Chinese players love to play first-person shooter battle royale games on mobile. Tencent’s decision to shake-up its popular FPS game dedicated to Chinese players is aimed to capitalize on nationalist furor that has gripped the nation since the commencement of US-China trade wars. Revenue figures suggest that the company has made the right call.

The previous version of PUBG Mobile in China lasted just over a year. But the company didn’t meet the local media laws to earn from the game. With over 600 million active players in China, Tencent could ill-afford to pass on the opportunity to monetize this big market.
Since the government approval of changes made in the PUBG Mobile game, the publisher gets permission to generate revenue from it.
Game for Peace comprises internal changes targeted towards Chinese market guidelines. That said, players get virtually the same gameplay experience as in the earlier version. It just has a new Chinese air force theme skinned on top of the interface.
