'PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds' Getting Modified For China

Reuters released a story over the weekend detailing the plans Bluehole has releasing PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds in China. According to the report, the Chinese government isn't too fond of the "killing" aspect to a battle royale game and would rather players focused on the "teamwork" aspect. Bluehole, not wanting to miss out on the massive gaming audience China has to offer, will be tweaking the game specifically for release there.

What do you think of the changes to the game? Is it wise for Bluehole to change PUBG's game style to meet the country's views in the name of sales, or should they have stuck to their guns (so to speak) and pushed for the game to be released as-is?
