Much in the same fashion as the video from the Russian channel "C-c-combo breaker!", French journalists from the most popular gaming website in France, jeuxvideo.com, have gone into the id Software headquarters and gathered information for the much anticipated Quake Champions.
Here's what I could loosely translate and the link to the video itself.
Willits on bringing in new players : I think that if you've been playing army-realistic-style FPSes for a while, Quake will feel quite refreshing. For those, it will feel quite new, even if you're playing against a 40 yo player that's been into fast arena shooters for 20 years.
Zero4 : Right now the keyboard-mouse setup is very popular and has become second-nature but at the age of Q3 it was something new that we all had to learn. I think that the generation that learned to play with this setup will be able to share that experience with newer generations and I think that's great.
Implied by journalist : id software is heavily pushing into esports (third party) to promote its game like hell
ZeRo4 on spectator features : This is one of our main goals. One of the things that we've learned over the years is that to create an established esports game you need to make it very spectator-friendly. We are working HARD on the spectator features to be able to capture all the highlights that are happening in the game.
Reporter : Aren't you afraid knowing this is a fast FPS we're talking about ?
ZeRo4 : That's clearly one of our bigger challenges. We're hoping that our spectator features will be able to give out this speedy, brutal kind of game that we're releasing to the general audience.
Implied by journalist : 4v4 or 5v5 we will have to wait and see what's best (= idsoftware still doesnt know that but either 4 or 5)
Willits : For now, as modes go, we've been trying to see deathmatch, team deathmatch and we have tried different other popular modes
