"Captures The Reality Of Modern-Day Terrorism"
After months of speculation, Ubisoft has officially announced a new Rainbow 6 game, subtitled Patriots. It will launch on PC, Playstation 3 and the Xbox 360 in 2013, with Ubisoft's Montreal, Toronto and Red Storm studios all involved in production. Patriots boasts a "dynamic" campaign told from "multiple perspectives", with the elite Team Rainbow facing an all new threat, the True Patriots.
"Terrorism has evolved, and so has Rainbow 6," said David Sears, creative director at Ubisoft. "In Tom Clancy’s Rainbow 6 Patriots, all the team play, tactics, and realism that fans of the series love have been coupled with an exciting new narrative direction. This adds an unprecedented level of humanity that will make Tom Clancy’s Rainbow 6 Patriots an extremely tense and immersive experience.”
Team Rainbow will have to deal with an all new threat, with the terrorist group the True Patriots seeking to reclaim America from an "irrevocably corrupt and greedy" government. The True Patriots will apparently put Team Rainbow is considerably difficult scenarios where ethical concerns must be considered.
And along with a gripping campaign, Rainbow 6 Patriots will also feature the customary multiplayer option, with co-operative and competitive modes on offer. It's all about working as a team, apparently, and good old fashioned teamwork will be rewarded in spades. All in all, a very exciting new addition to the Rainbow 6 series. We can't wait to hear more.
