Ubisoft have released a launch trailer for Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege, which is due to release on December 1st for the Xbox One, Playstation 4 and PC. Rainbow Six Siege is a tactical shooter set in first person, where players take control of an operator from the Rainbow team, a counter-terrorist unit. The different operators have different nationalities, perks, abilities and equipment. For example, an operator named Twitch is equipped with a drone that has the ability to stun enemies with an electric shock, Smoke has the ability to detonate poison gases, which can dramatically lower the health of enemies within the affected areas. As a result, Rainbow Six Siege features an asymmetrical structure.
Each team will also gain access to a “Recruit”, whose gears and gadgets can be customized by players to meet the requirements of a match. Players can only play as one of the classes in a match, and cannot be switched throughout. Team-work is heavily encouraged throughout Siege, and players are tasked to integrate their abilities to eliminate their enemies, Rainbow Six Siege will be a game where communication is vital.
