Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege Announced For PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4
Update: Ubisoft has announced that Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege is headed to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC somewhere in 2015.
Original Story: After whole six years, Ubisoft’s Yves Guillemot announced the next iteration in Ubisoft’s flagship franchise, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege.
The E3 demonstration that we saw was taken from pre-alpha 5 on 5 multiplayer footage of the game between Team Raven and Team Rogue.
Unlike popular FPS multiplayer game modes, the mission we saw revolved around rescuing a hostage being held inside a building. One team was assigned the role of captives while the other was assigned the role of rescuers.
The match begins with rescuers sending in a ground-drone inside the building to locate the positions of enemy forces, hostage, and planning the attack.
The gameplay demonstration showcased a lot of breaching (it looks like almost any surface can be breached), destructible environment, using riot shields as covers, and leaning (not only across walls, but also across other players).
Throughout the gameplay, we saw the hostage drifting between rescuers and kidnappers until… Well, the ending was a bit vague.
Speaking of vague things, Ubisoft neither divulged any expected platform nor any solid release date. Considering the fact that we saw a pre-alpha footage, it looks like the game is certainly a long way from being fully developed.
