Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI) developer Krafton is highlighting parental controls in its latest “Gaming Responsibly” campaign. This includes a virtual world warning message, OTP authentication for all players under 18 years of age, break reminders for better game-life balance, gameplay limits, and daily spend limits for players to prevent overspending. In addition, BGMI says that it has even sensitised in-game graphics to inculcate a healthy and responsible gaming culture. We have reduced violence, bloodshed, and set parameters that keep the language in check.
To promote the responsible BGMI gaming, the following in-game features have been added:
- Virtual World Warning Message: Prior to the actual game begins, players will be prompted with a warning that they are entering a virtual gaming world from their real physical world.
- OTP Authentication: Every minor below the age of 18 are required to register their parent or guardian before they can play with their first game.
- Breaktime Reminders: These breaks help players keep track of their time to avoid addictive game sessions and get back to real life
- Gameplay Limits: This restriction is in place to prevent players under 18 years from gaming for more than 3 hours a day just like any other entertainment activity.
- Daily Spend Limits: Now, every player can only spend a maximum of Rs 7,000 per day for various in-game purchases.
- Moderated Game Graphics: The graphical representation within the game promotes reduced bloodshed, violence, nudity, and censorship over language.
