Firefall Comes Out Blazing with eSports Toolkit

Red 5 Reach Out to Shoutcasters with New Features

eSports is a subject on a lot of MMO developers' minds.

Many talk up the importance of the very popular - and rapidly growing - form of entertainment, but Red 5 Studios is putting its money where its mouth is.

The latest Firefall video, debuted by PC Gamer, shows just how robust the spectator system is in the sci-fi MMO shooter.

Red 5's Morgan Romine outlines the importance of giving tools to shoutcasters to explain the gameplay and heighten the excitement for the audience.

The ability to pause and do slow motion replay is particularly exciting and gives a lot of scope for absorbing coverage.

Do you think Red 5 are doing eSports right? Could other MMOs learn a few lessons from this approach?
