Battlefield 4 Gets Banned In China Over Security Concerns
If life in China wasn’t bad enough already, now it’s officially illegal to play Battlefield 4. The Chinese government has been noted as saying that EA Games developed various types of content that actually brings a threat to their nations security.
So what’s their problem with the latest installment of Battlefield 4 you might ask? Well according to a PCGames.com.cn report released last friday, the Chinese Ministry of Culture found that the first-person shooter illustrates a type of “cultural invasion.” Due to this, the game downloads, demos, patches and news reports are now deemed prohibited to have in possession.
The latest Battlefield 4: China Rising is the game that’s setting is found in a war in China which was essentially instigated by Admiral Chang, who has plans on overtaking the government leaders. He’s being backed by Russian military and plans to start a war between the U.S. and China. Maybe they were just tired of all the bugs and errors that multiplayer gamers have been reporting?
You can read more about this in the Chinese newspaper “China Military” but you may need a translator to understand the language if you’re unfamiliar with Chinese letters. What are your thoughts about banning Battlefield 4 in all of China, do you think there was a legitimate reason for doing so or should they just let the gaming nerds have their fun?
