PUBG Mobile or the Asian Version of PUBG Mobile, which was adopted as an official event during this year’s Hangzhou Asian Games in China, has had the shooting feature removed. This is because ‘person-to-person shooting,’ a key component of the PUBG game, was banned due to concerns that it would undermine friendly relations among nations. The amazing clashes performed by players in the pro league are expected to impress fans. The PUBG mobile ‘Asian Games-only edition’ is being produced as per announcement on the 20th. This version is a team-based game in which four people compete for driving and shooting skills. It was based on Bagg Mobile, but without the anti-enemy shooting component.
An official from Krafton explained, “There is no anti-personnel element, but we are developing an Asian game version so that you can feel the atmosphere of the baggy by providing PUBG IP (intellectual property rights) and builds.” Normally, Battleground is a battle royale game played by up to 100 people using various weapons and means of transportation. Fans around the world have been enthusiastic about the thrill of surviving using various strategies while acquiring items from a wide map, and choosing the last person or team.
The reason for the absence of the face-to-face shooting aspect in the PUBG Mobile Asian Games version is unknown. The industry, on the other hand, feels that the Asian Games organising committee has advised that “because the Asian Games is an event that fosters camaraderie between countries, let us remove the interpersonal shooting aspect that can harm it.”
The Asian Games PUBG Mobile competition’s detailed regulations and operating norms have yet to be decided, as it does not include a personal shooting aspect. The national team selection competition will be held in associations and organisations designated by each country as soon as the development of the Asian Games edition of Krafton is completed.
