Noticed this recently on the Street of Rogue changelog Alpha 37 - Even More Downtown Work:
Did a bunch of work on a “Chinese Government Approved” Chinese version of the game
Now news outlets are reporting PUBG will change for China and align with ‘socialist core values’:
But, in a statement from Tencent translated by Reuters, the gaming giant says that it will go a step further and alter Battlegrounds to better align with “socialist core values, Chinese traditional culture and moral rules.”
While also mentioning:
It’s not entirely clear what that means.
Reuters points out that Tencent’s competitor NetEase has accomplished something similar by adding actual government propaganda to the game, adding “red banners into its battleground ... with slogans such as ‘safeguard national security, safeguard world peace.’”

So what did you have to do to make it "Chineese Government Approved"?

@ytivarg I'm a little wary of getting into specifics, but it's basically some text and art that might be seen as objectionable. You can draw your own conclusions (or sift through the localization folder)
- So what exactly does it take to make a game "Chinese Government Approved" or sticking to "socialist core values"?
