While everyone is busying themselves with PlayerUnknown Battlegrounds' new test map, Codename: Savage, PUBG Corp. announced some new updates coming to the main PC build of the game, including a kill cam system that seems a bit familiar.
PUBG is adding a kill spectator mode that will let players spectate their killer by clicking the "watch" button on their match result screen. There will be some differences to the spector mode depending on whether you're playing solo or squad mode.
In solo mode, players can immediately spectate their killer upon their death. If you're murdered by a Blue Zone, Red Zone, or from falling you'll be able to spectate the nearest player from your death location. When the player's killer they are spectating dies, they can then spectate their killer's killer.
In Duo or Squad, the same rules apply, but players can only spectate the enemy team after all your team members are dead. This is presumably so that if you die before the rest of your team, you can't spy on an enemy team and feed your teammates information.
The kill cam is similar to the one found in Fortnite Battle Royale, though of course kill spectator cameras have been a long fixture in competitive multiplayer games for years. Still, this won't stop courting questions about similarities between the two most popular battle royale games.
