PUBG getting killcam and replays for 1.0 launch

Henry Stenhouse spent his younger life studying the laws of physics, even going so far as to complete a PhD in the subject before video game journalism stole his soul. You'll find Henry chugging along the news train most days, throwing out features into the wild and finding any excuse possible to talk about esports when he can.

Formerly of the freelance life, Henry held such esteemed (read: imaginary) titles as PC Gamer's go-to CS:GO freelancer, and has been smitten with the competitive shooter life since growing up on the slopes of Dust2.

Henry's experience culminated in his role as AllGamer's premium FPS player, meaning he's won at least a single game of PUBG, we promise. Henry is also a fan of all things Nintendo and strategy, and still can't get over just how good Breath of the Wild is.

If you'd like to send Henry free stuff (he'll take a Vive Pro, thanks) contact him via email at or catch him on Twitter, here.

Arriving on PC December 20, later on Xbox.

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds will be getting 3D replay functionality and a Killcam in the PC 1.0 launch December 20.

The features have been added as part of a partnership with the Korea-based gaming tech company Minkonet, and allow players to watch Killcam footage of their death à la Call of Duty.

PUBGCorp’s press release stated that the Killcam function should “help curb the increasing amount of cheating and hacking issues afflicting the gaming community worldwide.”

The Killcam feature is also arriving just in time for the report feature to come online, which should now allow players to fill an alert when killed by a player who they suspect to be cheating.

The replay function allows players to watch back footage of their matches with camera separated from the player, free to move around the map and track other competitors.

The detached camera should allow for some snazzy footage capture for your everyday player, as well as drastically improving the viewing experience for esports audiences.

Both Killcam and replay functions are available in the current test server on PC, and will be transferred to the main game come December 20. The updates are expected to make their way to the Xbox release in future as it catches up to the PC.
