If you ever resented your parents for limiting your time playing video games, be thankful your government wasn’t at it too.
Tencent has announced it will start forcibly restricting the number of hours children can spend playing its popular mobile MOBA, Honour of Kings (or Arena of Valor, as it’s known in the west). Beginning Saturday 15th September, players will be required to register their real names in order to play. These will be verified using a police database in order to identify underage players, and limit a child’s playtime. Children aged between 13 and 18 will be able to play for up to two hours per day, while those 12 and under will be limited to just one.
Tencent introduced these times in July last year, but now it’s being backed up by state data, players can no longer input a false age to dodge the limits. Sorry kids – there’s no escape.
