A Country Has Had Enough Of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds!

One of the leading battle royale games is no longer accepted in this country, getting banned in the process.

The Reuters news agency reports that the Nepal Telecommunications Authority has ordered a ban on PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, as it is „addictive to children and teenagers,” and the battle royale game is so violent that it affects them negatively.

Sandip Adhikari, the deputy director of the Nepal Telecommunications Authority (we’re shortening it to NTA from now on!), says that even though there haven’t been any incidents in the country that stemmed from this game, there are concerns that the children are getting distracted from their school work, housework, or other duties by playing PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. Thus, NTA has ordered the mobile and internet service providers to block access to PUBG.

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds isn’t under fire in just Nepal – about a month ago, in India, four cities have temporarily blocked the mobile version (iOS/Android) of PUBG, as they thought it provoked violence and anger in your people, and also, a teenager has committed suicide after arguing with his parents because they thought he played way too much game. These incidents don’t paint PUBG positively in India.

PUBG Corporation hasn’t responded to the ban yet…
