'Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege' (ALL) Pro League Season 7 Begins This Week

by Rainier on March 12, 2018 @ 11:44 a.m. PDT

Inspired by real world counter-terrorist organizations, Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege puts players in the middle of lethal close-quarters confrontations.

For the first time in a Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six game, players will engage in sieges, a new style of assault where enemies have the means to transform their environments into modern strongholds while Rainbow Six teams lead the assault to breach the enemy’s position. Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege gives players unprecedented control over their ability to fortify their position - by reinforcing walls and floors, using barbed wire, deployable shields and mines, and more - or breach the enemies’ using observation drones, sheet charges, rappelling, and more. The fast pace, lethality and uniqueness of each siege sets a new bar for intense firefights, strategic gameplay and competitive gaming.

Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege also features a technological breakthrough that redefines the way players interact with a game environment. Leveraging Ubisoft Montreal’s proprietary Realblast engine, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege incorporates procedural destruction that is realistic and unscripted, meaning the environment reacts authentically, distinctively and dynamically, based on variables like the caliber of bullets or the amount of explosives used. This advance allows players to leverage destruction in meaningful ways. Walls can be shattered, opening new lines of fire. Ceilings and floors can be breached to create new access points. This ability to modify the level design in real time enables players to create new gameplay opportunities directly within the game level.

Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Pro League Season 7 will begin this week in all four territories worldwide (Asia-Pacific, Europe, Latin America, and North America), and will be a transitional season which will serve as the last season to follow the previous three-month long Pro League format.

Each Year will now be comprised of two six-month long Pro League Seasons. A format that will begin with Season 8 in June 2018. Additional details on the forthcoming Season 8 Pro League format can be found here. Season 7 will be concluded by a Season Final, wherein eight of the world’s best Pro League teams will meet in the USA for a final showdown. Full details on this LAN event, including exact location, will be shared soon.

Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six esports scene second year concluded last month with the Six Invitational 2018, the premier event of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six® pro scene, gathering sixteen of the best Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Pro League teams from across the world, competing for an unprecedented prize pool of $500,000. This landmark event also celebrated the third anniversary of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Siege release, bringing together the ever-growing community of fans in the game’s birth city of Montreal. Together with Pro players, developers, and streamers, the Six Invitational 2018 reached unprecedented figures, compiling more than 6.2 million hours watchedacross all channels.

Key Features

  • Counter terrorist operatives are trained to handle extreme situations, such as hostage rescue, with surgical precision. As “short range” specialists, their training is concentrated on indoor environments. Operating in tight formations, they are experts of close quarter combat, demolition, and coordinated assaults.
  • For the first time in Rainbow Six, players will engage in sieges, a brand-new style of assault. Enemies now have the means to transform their environments into strongholds: they can trap, fortify, and create defensive systems to prevent breach by Rainbow teams. To face this challenge, players have a level of freedom unrivaled by any previous Rainbow Six game. Combining tactical maps, observation drones, and a new rappel system, Rainbow teams have more options than ever before to plan, attack, and diffuse these situations.
  • Destruction is at the heart of the siege gameplay. Leveraging Ubisoft Montreal’s proprietary Realblast engine, players now have the unprecedented ability to destroy environments. Walls can be shattered, opening new lines of fire, and ceiling and floors can be breached, creating new access points. Everything in the environment reacts realistically, dynamically, and uniquely based on the size and caliber of bullets you are using or the amount of explosives you have set. In Rainbow Six Siege, destruction is meaningful and mastering it is often the key to victory.
