China does not want to see blood, corpses or references to its imperial past

The Chinese government and its national administration of press and publishing apply since Monday a new regulation in video games, reports
Bloomberg. Among the titles now banned from commercialization are those featuring blood or corpses. Games referring to the country's imperial past are also banned as are gambling.

The simulations of poker and mahjong in the viewfinder

The presence of blood was already officially banned in video games sold in China. But publishers had bypassed the regulation of the world's largest market for the sector, including offering blood of a color other than red. This trick is no longer possible.

Violent games, however, are not those who will suffer the most from this hardening of the law. Indeed, the developer Niko Partners indicates that 37% of the titles authorized by the local authorities in 2017 were simulations of poker or mahjong, which fall under the new restrictions restrictions, details BFM TV which relays the information.

With these measures, China wants to fight against the risks of gambling addiction. Publishers must now provide a detailed script and information on measures to combat overly intensive practices in order to have the right to sell their product.
