Rainbow Six: Siege Announced, Multiplayer Demo Showcases New Mechanics
Rainbow Six returns in a new way.
Rainbow Six: Patriots may not have been showcased at this year’s Ubisoft E3 media briefing but it had a worthy replacement as the publisher debuted Rainbow Six: Siege. We got a look at the multiplayer demo for the game which pitted a team of operatives against a team of criminals in an attempt to rescue a hostage. For a game lacking in set-pieces and over the top explosives, it was certainly enthralling. Check it out above.
Some of the more interesting mechanics included a large degree of destructibility that allowed one to shoot through walls and blow out ceiling in order to get the drop on enemies. While picking up a hostage, you’ll be restrained to using a side-arm while you escort said liability out. You can also use drones to ascertain enemy positions, thus planning ahead in true Rainbow Six style.
