A few days ago, reports were rife that PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds or PUBG Mobile, an immensely popular game in India is imposing a new rule. This allowed the users to play the game for a period of six hours before being banned for the entire day. Many of the players were furious because of the decision and vented it out on various social media channels. In a tweet by the official Twitter account of PUBG Mobile India, the developers of the game have apologised, claiming the restriction was a bug, which has since been fixed, along with a few other bugs that were causing a hindrance in the gameplay.

What Has Changed?

The latest in-app update to PUBG Mobile, the official tweet claims to fix a few of the bugs that were reported in the game. The Birthday Crate, which was put in place to celebrate the one-year anniversary of the game has been changed. A bug which let misuse of the coupons to get free in-game currency has also been fixed. Because of it, the payment service is functioning again after a brief hiatus.

The biggest change and perhaps the most anticipated in PUBG Mobile is the removal of the Healthy Gameplay System error. As mentioned above, this restricted the users to play for more than six hours in a day. The official account claims the players will supposedly get to play the game without any interruptions. Despite the claimed fix, some users have reported the bug still persists. It is expected that the issue will be fixed for all users in the following days.

Interestingly, PUBG Mobile has been all over the news the past few weeks, and all for infamous reasons. A few days ago, it was reported that two cities in Gujarat have banned the game and also arrested a few people for playing it in public. Another report claimed a person died because of playing the game for 45 days. It was expected that the six-hour ban was put in place to prevent more incidents like these from happening. Now that the developers have alleged that was not the case, it should pacify most players of the game. The new fixes can be download by starting the game and downloading an in-app update.
