'Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege' (ALL) Teams Up With Aim Lab As Official FPS Training Partner - Trailer

by Rainier on April 23, 2021 @ 1:22 p.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.


Ubisoft announced Aim Lab as the official FPS training partner for Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege globally (excluding China) and across all platforms. The goal of the partnership is to help new and existing players assess their gameplay, train core skills, overcome skill plateaus, and compete in Skills Challenges and Combines to unlock in-game rewards. 

Aim Lab was built as the ultimate training solution for players of first-person and third-person shooters, blending cutting-edge performance tracking and analytics with artificial intelligence and machine learning to make players better, faster. 

To maximize the way players train and learn new skills, Aim Lab has replicated Rainbow Six Siege physics including player movements, weapon recoil and game environments, beginning with graybox versions of the popular competitive maps Oregon and Clubhouse. Aim Lab will keep building new ways for players to take their skills to the next level and prepare for ranked matches, with new tasks and features that help teach specific skills like recoil control, entry fragging, and more advanced concepts beyond just aiming and shooting.

During the partnership, Aim Lab players will also have the opportunity to earn in-game rewards in Rainbow Six Siege, such as an exclusive Aim Lab skin, for completing specialized training programs. Integrations related to the partnership will be available for PC this summer, with console integrations coming later this year.

“Aim Lab is excited to develop the official training programs to help Rainbow Six Siege players of all levels master core skills and compete at the highest levels,” said Dr. Wayne Mackey, founder of Aim Lab. “Our goal is to deliver a fun and engaging experience while helping players win even more ranked matches.” 

“We are proud to work with Aim Lab on an ambitious partnership,” said the Rainbow Six Siege development team. “This is a great opportunity for players to grow with a tool recognized as the ultimate FPS/TPS training program for gamers of all levels and is a step forward in terms of players’ skills in-game. We are happy and excited by this new collaboration and we hope our players will enjoy it as well!”

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, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC.
