India's paramilitary force, CRPF has recently instructed its commanding officers to ban troops from playing PUBG Mobile.

It was said that the game had affected the jawan's operational capabilities. As per officials, the game also led to sleep deprivation because of reduced physical activity.

Therefore, all deputy inspectors-general (DIGs) were instructed to ensure that the game was deleted from all phones.

Game for Peace

The game was also recently pulled down in China

China recently formed new video game guidelines, under which it banned any games that featured gambling, violence, obscene content, and blood.

PUBG was pulled down owing to its violent theme and was replaced with a more government-friendly alternative known as Game for Peace.

The new game is quite similar to PUBG but glorifies the Chinese Air Force and features no blood.
