Under new regulation, China has announced it is implementing a gaming curfew for all minors in the country. That is, anyone under the age of 18 years, which intends to limit gaming time with a cutoff between 10pm and 8am, and access to online games for said minors during the week will only be 90-minutes per day, and just three hours each day of the weekend.

According to a report from CNN the new regulation will also limit the amount of money minors can spend on their online gaming account per month; eight to 16 year-olds will be able to top up at a maximum of 200 yuan (about $40 Australian dollars), and 16 to 18 year-olds double that.

The report says that these regulations will apply to all active online gaming platforms in the country. The guidelines were drafted in response to what the Chinese government has suggested is a problem in youth with "video game addiction", and is part of a sweeping campaign regulate gaming and the games industry within China.
