Krafton, the South Korean company behind Battlegrounds Mobile India or BGMI, has added a new degree of parental control to the game with an OTP wall and a time limit for users. In its current 'Gaming Responsibly' campaign, Krafton emphasises OTP authentication for all gamers under the age of 18, virtual world warning messages, break reminders, playtime limitations, and daily time spend limits.
Warning messages, break reminders, gaming limitations, and other features will be available as part of the 'Game Responsibly' programme.
"Every player, below the age of 18, needs to register a parent or a guardian before they start playing for the first time. An OTP will be sent to the registered person's number, post which the minor is allowed to play the game," the company said in a statement.
Some games can get quite intense, causing participants to lose track of time.
The developer, on the other hand, has ensured that gamers get their essential downtime by sending out appropriate break-time notifications.
These reminders will encourage them to take a break from their game and return to real life, allowing them to maintain a good game-life balance.
Furthermore, gamers under the age of 18 must not play for more than 3 hours each day due to a stringent gaming limit. This immediately encourages people to view gaming as a leisure activity to be enjoyed in moderation.
In addition, the business has imposed a daily purchase restriction of Rs 7,000 in-game, which prevents players from overpaying and overgaming.
To combat cheating on Battlegrounds Mobile India, Krafton recently revealed that it has terminated 25 lakh accounts in just over a month (BGMI).
Between October 1 and November 10, Krafton permanently banned 25,19,692 accounts and temporarily banned 7,06,319 others.
"The company has cleaned out most of the cheaters in the game, making BGMI a much more fun experience, and will continue to take whatever step is necessary to keep BGMI fair and fun," Krafton claimed.
