Tencent Will Soon Require Chinese Gamers to Present IDs Before They Can Play

The Infinite Brief
China’s Tencent will soon require gamers to prove their ages and identities against police records, according to a new official statement yesterday.

Under the new system, users will need to register their Chinese national IDs in order to play any games from Tencent.

Tencent has been criticized by state-run People’s Daily, which called Arena of Valor “poison,”after reports that students were ditching their homework to play the mobile game.
