PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds will be launching with a new 3D replay system and Killcam functionality, PUBG Corporation announced Monday.
The new replay and Killcam system, which PUBG Corporation developed in partnership with South Korea-based company Minkonet, will allow players to follow another user’s gameplay as an in-game observer, as well as view their own deaths to see who murdered you and how they did it.
“Building replay systems for battle royale, open world and massively multiplayer online games that typically feature huge maps and many objects to interacting in real time presents many technical challenges,” said Peter Kim, co-founder and CEO of Minkonet. “We know expectations from the community are high and our team worked side-by-side with the PUBG developers to design and deliver a never-before-seen, immersive replay experience that is sure to deliver countless hours of ‘wow-factor’ moments and sharable content.”
In addition to allowing players to view their own deaths, Minkonet states in the press release that the Killcam functionality can be used to detect cheating or hacking, such as the use of aimbots or speed hacks.
PUBG recently launched on the Xbox One’s Game Preview program on Dec. 12, with version 1.0 set to launch on PC on Dec. 20.
