Battlefield 4: China Ain’t Playin’

China has taken offense to being labeled the bad guy in EA’s video game Battlefield 4.

So much so, that search results for the Chinese translation of the title “Zhandi4”, are even blocked in the country.  The Ministries of China issued a notice citing the game as a threat to national security. Battlefield 4 is deemed an attack on China’s culture and officials believe it discredits the People’s Republic of China in the eyes of other countries.

Any paraphernalia associated with the game- downloads, websites, advertisements- anything, is officially illegal in China. No word yet on punishment for violators.
