Player Unknown: Battlegrounds is arguably the battle royale that juggernauts like Fortnite and Apex Legends were born from, but there are parts of the world where you’re not even allowed to play it. Afghanistan will soon join that list. The Taliban – which took power of the country last year – has confirmed its plans to implement a nationwide ban on both PUBG and TikTok.
Confirmation that PUBG and TikTok will soon be banned in Afghanistan comes courtesy of a report from The Khaama Press (via Dexerto). “TikTok must be banned within a month time from now and PUBG should be banned within [the] next 90 days,” the report reads. It was published on Sunday which means TikTok will be unusable in Afghanistan by the middle of October, and PUBG will join it in December.
