Rainbow 6: Patriots Brings Terrorism To The Board Room

Not many trailers legitimately shock me to silence, mouth dropped. Even when they do, it’s more of a “HOLY CRAP THIS GAME IS COMING OUT” or “SWEET LORD THIS CHARACTER IS IN THIS GAME.” Rare is the time where a trailer achieves a movie twist-like shock, like “Whoa…what just happened?”

The VGA teaser for Rainbow 6: Patriots did that to me tonight.

I expected homegrown terrorism. I anticipated a terrorist attack of some sort. I never even dreamed of what Ubisoft presented to the VGA audience tonight. See for yourself:

The more I see of this game, the more intrigued I become of its narrative choices. We’ll see if the final product holds the same shock level.
