Ever wanted to live out your fantasy of robbing some stores and running away with the money? Have you recently been watching that crime gangster show on TV called Peaky Blinders? Well Rainbow Six Siege has, the new limited-time event called “The Grand Larceny” suits everyone up in old-timey operator skins to duke it out on Hereford base whilst risking it all to steal that sweet sweet dough.
Tom Clancy fans will no doubt be aware Rainbow Six is an elite group of counter-terrorist operatives, made up of members of the finest special forces soldiers from around the world. The absolute cream of the crop, the best of the best. We'll soon see that change once I get my hands on them in R6: Siege.
The standard edition of Rainbow Six: Siege on PC will be a digital-only release, Ubisoft has confirmed. The squad-based tactical multiplayer shooter will not be available on disc unless users splash out for the £60 limited edition Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Siege - Art of Siege special edition.
Ubisoft has revealed a new trailer for Rainbow Six: Siege, demonstrating a brand-new class-based operator system. Five distinct classes are available for both attackers and defenders, with each granted unique skills, weapons, and abilities.
Screens have surfaced from the Rainbow Six: Siege alpha, depicting a new map in which terrorists must hold a hostage on an aeroplane while counter-terrorist forces storm it. The map, imaginatively dubbed ‘Plane’, allows players to explore multiple floors with passenger seating, cargo, cockpit, kitchen and more.
There was no doubt in my mind when Ubisoft took the wraps off of Rainbow Six: Siege at E3 last year that it was onto a winner. Small-scale tactical FPS combat with fully destructible environments and tense, three-minute rounds. Rainbow Six: Siege immediately looked liked the logical evolution of Counter-Strike and I couldn't wait to get my hands on it.
Rainbow Six: Siege was without a doubt one of the best surprises during E3 this year, and ever since seeing that all-too-brief gameplay demo we’ve been clamouring for more of Ubisoft’s tactical squad-based shooter.
A stack of new gameplay footage has emerged of Ubisoft’s Rainbow Six: Siege, courtesy of an E3 Accolades trailer, showing off the squad-based multiplayer shooter’s fully destructible environments.
Rainbow Six: Siege was officially unveiled - following what was basically a complete rework of Rainbow Six: Patriots - at Ubisoft’s 2014 E3 Press Conference, and it seems the multiplayer shooter will be getting a betas testing phase before it eventually launches.
