PUBG banned by Jordan over ‘negative effects’

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Jordan on Saturday banned the hugely popular but brutal online game PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, citing its “negative effects” on the kingdom’s citizens.

Often likened to the blockbuster book and film series The Hunger Games, PUBG pits marooned characters against each another in a virtual fight to the death, and has become one of the world’s most popular mobile games.

A source in Jordan’s Telecommunications Regulatory Authority warned the game “had negative effects on its users, which led to its being officially blocked”.
