'Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege' (ALL) Rolls Out Time Limited Western Themed 3v3 Mode - Trailer

by Rainier on July 3, 2019 @ 2:28 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.

Showdown will introduce an all-new game mode only for the brave of heart. Set under the burning sun of Fort Truth, an all-new limited time map, Showdown will include exclusive in-game content for all players that participate throughout the length of the event.

Available from July 2 to July 16, this trip back to the gunslinger wild west will introduce a tension-filled 3 vs 3 game mode with a “secure area type” exclusive map, Fort Truth. This limited game mode will see two trios of Attackers and Defenders competing with only a BOSG.12.2 and a Magnum LFP586 in hand to face off against each other. Moreover, Showdown will introduce a limited HUD where health, ammo, and crosshairs are stripped away, and no preparation phase is allowed.

The Showdown event will introduce 31 western-themed exclusive items. Showdown exclusive items will include full wild west outfits composed of various items, alongside headgear that players can acquire for 10 operators.

Players that log in during the event will get a free Showdown Collection Pack and can complete the Ubisoft Club Event challenges to earn a pack and a unique weapon skin for the BOSG.12.2. Players can also purchase the Showdown packs for 300 R6 Credits.

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.

Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege is currently available on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
