PUBG in China will have "socialist core values", according to a recent statement.

Bluehole Studio plans to release its record-breaking mega-hit shooting game "PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds" in China, in partnership with internet and game giant Tecent Holdings, the two companies said on November 22.
