The single-player mode of Rainbow Six: Siege will have no supporting AI characters, Ubisoft has revealed.
The game is without a story campaign and players will instead be given single-player missions to complete. Previously, these came with AI characters that could be given tactical orders. For example, to throw in a flash grenade, or guard a specific entrance.
This time around, Ubisoft has removed that element. You can either play Rainbow Six: Siege solo, or cooperatively with up to four friends. There are no AI characters to command with the new installment.
The game’s animation art director Scott Mitchell mentioned there will be difficulty settings, and players can increase that if they begin to find the experience too easy.
According to the developer, the single-player missions are “designed to expose the player to the content and mechanics of the game and are specifically designed to be played solo as a Lone Wolf.” It makes it sound like Ubisoft put in just about enough effort to make the single-player missions feel like tutorials.
Those who loved to spend time in organizing their troops in the previous Rainbow Six titles would perhaps find this news disappointing.
Rainbow Six: Siege is scheduled for a release on October 13 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
