PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds – Kakao Games prepares to launch Korean service

Although PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds was developed in South Korea by Bluehole, the game first gained popularity and traction in the West. With the game now topping Steam charts and having top Korean players in its esports tournaments, Kakao Games stepped up back in August to fulfill the role of publisher and operator in its native South Korea.

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds recently got an official rating of “Suitable for 15 years old and above”, which is better than the “Suitable for 18 years old and above” rating Bluehole obtained back in April from the local ruling authority. Kakao Games also announced it will be holding a media conference on 24 October to announce the service plans and schedule for PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, and its partnerships with PC bangs (internet cafes).
