Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege made a big splash at last year’s E3. Unlike other cops versus criminals shooters, Ubisoft’s take on the idea included ways to breach though walls and doors that actually seemed to matter. Players weren’t just tossing grenades to blow up walls or scooting into destructible hotspot patches, they were making their entry points into levels based on tactical needs. Terrorists holding a hostage in the bedroom? Blast through the adjoining study or blow through the floor of the attic and drop in! On the other side, if you think there are too many ways to gain entry to your hidey-hole, block the windows and doorways and set up your temporary barricade.
The Operators, the good guys of Rainbow Six Siege, get the highlight today. The multi-national force is made up of twenty personalities with their own specialties and skills, and one “blank slate” Recruit that allows players to customize their own character. That’s a lot of command voice yelling and breaching.
Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege is coming this year for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
