AskAboutGames On The Road: Ubisoft Building Positive Communities

We were out and about again today. Specifically for a segment on BBC 5 Live talking about video game chat and how to help your child have the skills they need to keep things safe and sensible.

Ubisoft have recently been talking about their work with local Police to ensure they can pass on reported messages where appropriate. It's part of the game publisher playing its part in creating healthy and safe play spaces for people of all ages.

For parents, there are a number of tools you can set up in the settings to specify how, who and when your child can communicate with other people. As we say in the clip here, "it's about helping them make mistakes and learn in a safe environment so they can have a positive lifelong love of video games".
