New Rainbow Six: Siege Gameplay Shown and Beta Announced

Today at Ubi Soft’s E3 conference, a stunning new cinematic trailer of the highly anticipated Rainbow Six: Siege was shown to the audience. The footage included new story elements and introduces the threat that team Rainbow will be going against in the single player campaign. This new threat will be unlike any we have seen before in the world of Rainbow Six. Check it out below!


Following the cinematic trailer, Aisha Tyler notes that everything is destructible, and once you die you stay dead. Angela Basset takes the stage to introduce the character she voices, a woman named Six. She is the head of the anti-terrorism group that will lead team Rainbow through their mission, and guide you along the single player experience of the game.

The second half of the presentation focused on multiplayer, as the classic terrorist hunt mode returns, and it can be played solo or cooperatively. The classic team tactics of Rainbow Six multiplayer return as every minute is precious. On display in this intense live demo is the true destructibility of the environment. Doors, walls, and everything in between are completely dynamic and will provide explosive multiplayer experiences.

The beta was announced shortly after, and will start on September 24th. It will be available on all current generation platforms and will include PVP and terror hunt modes.

Ubi Soft promises that Siege will return to the roots of the franchise that defined tactical shooting gameplay. Stay checked in with GameNews for all the latest! Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege will breach onto Playstation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC October 13th, 2015.
