In addition to changing the name, PUBG Corporation has also agreed to make various adjustments to the content in the game.

Some of them include adjustments to the appearance of game characters that are more family-friendly.

The location of the war was changed to a simulated training ground, as well as the loss of the effect of blood splatter on characters who were hit by gunfire.

This change was made because PUBG Mobile is considered by the Indian government to have a bad impact on teenagers in India.

PUBG Mobile is also considered to have taught the concept of violence which is very contrary to the culture of peace in India.

Furthermore, PUBG Mobile is also said to be able to make players addicted to playing.

To solve this problem, PUBG Corp. will reportedly release a feature that can limit game play time.
