Battlefield 4 Banned in China over National Security

Angie Santiago reports from SpawnFirst: "Battlefield 4 is banned in China due to the latest China Rising DLC. The Chinese government feels that it’s a “new form of cultural invasion,” and that the DLC “smears China’s image” – therefore, the game in its entirety was banned from being released. The Chinese translation of the title (ZhanDi4) is censored on the country’s biggest social media site, Weibo.com." (Battlefield 4, PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Nothing about the DLC smears China. Its not even story related. Its literally just a couple Chinese themed maps.

Super butthurt over replacing Russia as the new go-to hostile country.

"smears china's image? Really? China's "image" is something one scapes off of their shoe and makes one run for the hose. F'n China, always acting like a bunch of pre-teen whiners.

I taught English there for 7 months. They are nice people but 1/2 retarded in comparison to the much broader fields of study like NorthAmerican education. Smog is just "mist"... no really.
S M H. Im surprised I didnt get deported for some of the shit I 'educated' them about their own country.

China will ban western air current if they can.

Only because of the DLC?
The whole game is "smearing their image".
emmohammad17  +   517d ago
oh, iran is not alone.(BF3 ban)
china too banned this game!

DICE should make a game with China as the hero nation that saves the day. I'm sure that won't get banned in China, but I'm not certain about whether it would get banned in U.S of A. ;P

This is all politics and mind warping psychology. Putting in China as the bad guys would probably turn a lot of people against them unconsciously. It does so in a very subtle manner. Though all the news going around about China's handling of its people and its neighbors is enough to cast them in a bad light without BF coming in to the fray.
Same goes for US, with its spying of everybody else.

Germany's done much the same every time there's been a swastika in a game.

i'm no historian but as far as i know there were wars and murder , genocide etc before videogames and violent movies so you can't really use them as an excuse for all the very naughty people out there
