- Prime Minister Narendra Modi referred to the battle royale game PUBG.
- This was when he addressed students and parents during the Pariksha Pe Charcha 2.0 event.
- The game has gained mass popularity, some of it due to its “addictive nature.”
PUBG Mobile has grown by leaps and bounds since it was launched as it now has over 30 million daily active players. It also won Best Mobile Game Award at 2018 Golden Joystick Awards, along with Google Play’s best game of the year award. However, for all the adulation it has received, the battle-royale multiplayer title is also being looked at as a source of addiction for children and adults, in some cases. The game seems to have become so well known that even Narendra Modi, the Prime Minister of India, knows about how addictive it is.
