PUBG globally deploying a reminder to not play too much

PUBG has had some hits lately, seemed to be a lot of stories every time I looked at a newsreader about how much people were playing PUBG and it was causing issues in Asian communities.

Well, they've had to do some adjustments and are rolling out those adjustments globally now (kids playing too many video games isn't just a single geographical region issue, it's worldwide).

The new 'gameplay management' is rolling out globally now to help remind players to enjoy the game 'sustainably' and have a balanced experience.

Your move Fortnite!
