Those who played Fortnite or accessed services such as Epic Games, Steam, Yahoo and others no longer have these privileges if they live in Indonesia. The government of the Asian country has decided to block users’ access to these services and to the famous battle royale game, according to Reuter.
PayPal was also included in the list of prohibited services, but the Indonesian government has temporarily canceled the decision so that users have access to their money. Obviously, a lot of people were frustrated with the initial decision to block access to PayPal.
The Indonesian government’s decision to suspend access to Fortnite and the mentioned online services was based on non-compliance with new licensing rules. The deadlock was set for July 29 for the services to obey the new rules.
Indonesian authorities can now block access to content deemed to be disruptive to public order, and it seems that for one reason or another, Fortnite and the online services cited fall into this category.
But there is hope in this whole grim equation, as authorities are ready to lift the ban if companies register with the Indonesian database.
The tough decision comes at a time when Fortnite is gearing up for a crossover with Dragon Ball to introduce characters such as Goku and Vegeta to the game. It’s unclear exactly when the update will arrive, but that’s not stopping the field from online to speculate and exploit speculation that already exists. Judging from the information we have, it looks like Goku, Vegeta, Beerus, and Bulma will be those Dragon Ball characters jumping into the battle royale frenzy.
We look forward to seeing how the situation regarding the Indonesian ban develops. About 270 million people live in this Asian country, which automatically means a lot of internet users as well.
