PUBG has been the root of concern and controversy in India lately. With the growing addiction towards the game, parents have been concerned for their children while news of poor academic performance, suicide, stabbing, and mental instability because of the game are in the air.
A few institutes have taken the step of banning the game within its premises, while Ahmedabad police took it up a notch by banning the game in the city.
With all the concerning attention that the video game has drawn to itself, PUBG Mobile has decided to curb the addiction by restricting the play-time.
While an official statement from PUBG Mobile hasn’t been received, screenshots of the play-time restriction notification have been making rounds on the internet.
PUBG in India now has a play-time restriction of 6 hours.
This means that once you have played for six hours, you will be unable to play further and will receive a notification, under the title ‘Health Reminder’, asking you to come back the next day and resume the game.
According to sources, players under the age of 18 will receive a notification four and two hours before they reach their 6-hour curfew.
Though this may cause a lot of anguish to all PUBG enthusiasts, it comes as a huge relief to parents and family members ensuring a balance between study and play for their kids and also helps in maintaining proper mental health.
