Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege is the latest installment of the acclaimed first-person shooter franchise developed by the renowned Ubisoft Montreal studio.
Inspired by the reality of counter terrorist operatives across the world, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege invites players to master the art of destruction. Intense close quarters confrontations, high lethality, tactics, team play, and explosive action are at the center of the experience.
The gameplay of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege sets a new bar for intense firefights and expert strategy in the rich legacy of past Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six games.
For the first time in Rainbow Six, players will engage in sieges, a brand-new style of assault. Enemies now have the means to transform their environments into strongholds: they can trap, fortify, and create defensive systems to prevent breach by Rainbow teams.
To face this challenge, players have a level of freedom unrivaled by any previous Rainbow Six game. Combining tactical maps, observation drones, and a new rappel system, Rainbow teams have more options than ever before to plan, attack, and diffuse these situations.
Counter terrorist operatives are trained to handle extreme situations, such as hostage rescue, with surgical precision. As “short range” specialists, their training is concentrated on indoor environments. Operating in tight formations, they are experts of close quarter combat, demolition, and coordinated assaults. Rainbow Six Siege will include operators coming from five of the most worldwide renowned CTU: the British SAS, the American SWAT, the French GIGN, the German GSG9 and the Russian SPETSNAZ.
These Operators are specialists with their own expertise within Siege operations. Each has their own unique personality & specialty. Some are focused on assault where as others are defense-oriented. They can be combined within the same team to create new team strategies.
The game is procedurally generated so the gameplay will not be boring. Destruction is at the heart of the siege gameplay. Players now have the unprecedented ability to destroy environments. Walls can be shattered, opening new lines of fire, and ceiling and floors can be breached, creating new access points. Everything in the environment reacts realistically, dynamically, and uniquely based on the size and caliber of bullets you are using or the amount of explosives you have set. In Rainbow Six Siege, destruction is meaningful and mastering it is often the key to victory.
While the game does have a single player campaign, the real strength of this game is the coop action. The two teams will get to alternate between attacking and defending for 6 rounds. The team with the most points wins. In the case of a tie (3:3), the teams will go into overtime: best out of 3 rounds. At the start of the overtime rounds, the attack and defend roles are randomized.
During the Planning Phase, Attackers will choose their Attacking Operators, select their loadouts and then vote on their Insertion Point. In the Preparation Phase, Attackers will be scouting ahead with remote drones to assess the situation and recon valuable intel on the enemy’s position, the objective locations, and the established fortifications. During the Action Phase, Attackers will attempt to complete their objective, before the time limit expires, or eliminate the enemy team.
During the Planning Phase, Defenders will choose their Defending Operators, select their loadouts and then vote on an Objective Location. In the Preparation Phase, Defenders get time to prepare for the upcoming assault: they can fortify the objective location and its perimeter, molding their environment to their advantage. During the Action Phase, Defenders will fight to prevent objective completion or eliminate the incoming threat.
