that will be part of the imminent version 1.0 release of PLAYERUNKNOWN'S
BATTLEGROUNDS, which is set to leave early access
. The Korean tech company discusses the replay system they created
for the game, saying this will have 360 degree 3D coverage, Killcam
functionality, and more. Here are the details:
Minkonet, a prominent
Seoul-based gaming technology company, today announced its partnership with PUBG
Corp. to deliver 3D replay functionality in the online gaming phenomenon,
“PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS” (PUBG). The robust 360-degree data capture
technology powers the 3D Replay and Killcam features that will debut in PUBG’s
upcoming PC 1.0 release.
“Building replay systems for battle royale, open world and massively multiplayer
online games that typically feature huge maps and many objects 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 shareable content.”
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.
Today’s announcement reinforces the organization’s commitment to steadfast
expansion via high-profile gaming partnerships and media collaborations. The
South Korean firm also recently announced the opening of its North American
headquarters in Los Angeles.
