Back in 2019, China passed a new law that prohibits minors from playing between 10 pm and 8 am. The authorities believe that children spend too much time at the computer.
Of course, young minds began to look for ways to cheat the system: using senior accounts, entering the wrong date of birth when registering, and so on. How to deal with this?
Now access to games at night will only be after a face scan. And from the age of 18, of course.
The new technology is linked to China’s central public security base, where all residents are enrolled. It would be almost impossible to deceive such a system.
Developers will be required to implement the new system in their games. Already announced 60 projects that will support face identification, including the multiplayer MOBA strategy Honor of Kings and Game for Peace – an analogue of PUBG.
