Minkonet, a prominent Seoul-based gaming technology company, is lending a hand with making the PUBG replay and killcam systems a whole lot better. The new “3D replay” will debut with the 1.0 update, which is scheduled to launch on December 20.
Those of you who have experience the current killcam system used in Test Servers, will know that it isn’t very accurate. Here’s hoping Minkonet can right those wrongs!
Here’s what you can expect:
The new 3D Replay feature provides seamless playback video of the primary player’s gameplay as well as the innovative ability to closely follow another user’s gaming feats and arena roaming as an in-game observer, providing gameplay viewers, including esports audiences, a superior viewing experience. Minkonet’s 3D replay solution encompasses robust 360-degree high-definition data capture technology that smartly parses large amounts of data from complex and dynamic gaming environments free of playback slowdown or gamer lag.
Killcam functionality provides advanced insight and learning opportunities for players interested in closely re-examining gameplay missteps as well as helping to detect and gather evidence of in-game cheating. Minkonet’s 3D data technology provides an interactive all-around viewpoint that hasn’t been possible with the textual event logs and the video capture of the deceased player in other Killcams. The company’s technology can be leveraged by game developers across all platforms to help curb the increasing amount of cheating and hacking issues afflicting the gaming community worldwide.
Minkonet’s full suite of 3D replay solutions includes a Replay Highlight Cam, Esports Cam, Streamer Cam and Cinemax Cam, all designed to unleash new content capabilities previously unseen in gaming.
Sounds pretty damn good to me! I’ve died a few times to cheaters, so it’s good to see more tools becoming available to help police them. It’ll also be great to look back at the mistakes I made, and learn from them for future Chicken Dinner attempts!
