If you’ve ever tried to woo a friend into joining a competitive gaming scene, you’ll know how high the entry barriers can seem. The team of ex-Blizzard developers at Red 5 is well aware of how confusing high-level play is to those just dabbling their toes in the scene, and have answered the call by putting together an impressive suite of broadcasting and spectating tools. With options like top-down view, free camera and action camera, Red 5 envisions the tools making it easier for newbs to follow along – and for talented broadcasters to build a reputation for making the action accessible. The video below shows off some of the new features, but be sure to click through the source link for an extensive interview on how the developer hopes to implement its eSports dreams.
