Rainbow Six Siege Gameplay is About Planning & Split Second Decisions

By   /   Jun 14, 2014

We have not known much about Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege gameplay, but whatever Ubisoft let loose has really got out heads turning for it. So what exactly does the game feel like? Well, many of us have had the chance to get hands-on as well as hands-off demos, enough for us to fill you in a bit more.

What I have found out from the demos so far is that one element of epitomic importance is planning. Whether you are playing as the attackers or the defenders, you get a minute’s window to plan what you wish to do. Let’s talk about the Hostage Round.

Being the attackers you get to send in wheeled drones into the building where the hostage is kept. This helps you a lot in deciphering the fortifications, enemy positions (to some extent) and if you are lucky it might also help you figure out where the hostage is kept.

Being defenders, you will be allowed to put up fortifications; blocking doors and windows, putting barbed wires on the paths, making blast holes into the walls for your shooting spots and most importantly figuring out where you want to keep the hostage. Last but not the least, you can send in drones too but I would vote against it as you will already have a lot on your plate with all the preparations.

After the planning time, the attackers will decide whether to go in guns ablaze (I would vote against it) or may be use the Pointman. This dude is the one with a massive riot shield that you can take cover behind. The other teammates you would be then taking in are Assaulter and Breacher.

That being said, there is always a second round when the sides are switched and the same process follows. Surprises are going to be a key player, especially when you are playing as the defenders. Moreover, being the attackers you will have to by systematic, careful in every step you take (check being the corners) and keep at it.

Don’t forget, this is just one of the game modes that we have been shown in Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege gameplay. There will be more to follow.
