A new patch is on the way to PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. This marks the ninth major update the game has received since it left Early Access on PC last December, and it introduces a new spectator mode and a few bug fixes.
The biggest addition to the game is a new Killer Spectate mode. Following the update, you will be able to watch the player who killed you during a match by clicking on the button from the result screen. If your killer ends up dying, you’ll be able to continue spectating the player who killed them.
Additionally, you can spectate the player who was nearest to your death location if you die by the Blue or Red Zones or from fall damage. You will also have the ability to report the player you are watching in Killer Spectate mode by pressing R. However, you won’t be able to use Killer Spectate if you’re watching the Death Cam.
Beyond that, the new update addresses a small handful of bugs. Namely, it fixes an issue that would cause your vehicle to suddenly flip over or return to its starting point while driving, as well as one that prevented the username of your killer from appearing in Death Cam. You can find the full patch notes on Steam.
The update is scheduled to arrive to the game tonight, April 4, following a round of maintenance. Developer PUBG Corp. is taking servers offline for three hours beginning at 7 PM PT / 10 PM ET to move its current test build to the live game. A smaller map, Codename: Savage, is also currently in testing; you can see it in action in the video above.
