The last time we saw this franchise was in 2008, when Rainbow 6 Vegas 2 hit store shelves. It's time for another entry, even though we have to wait until 2013.
Ubisoft has officially confirmed Rainbow 6 Patriots , which will launch for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.
The development team from Ubisoft Montreal will lead while the Toronto and Red Storm teams will assist. The plot is both compelling and controversial: the elite Rainbow 6 squad has to put down a group of American insurgents who call themselves the "True Patriots." Along the way, Rainbow members will be forced to make "tough ethical decisions."
Said Ubisoft creative director David Sears:
"Terrorism has evolved and so has Rainbow 6. In Tom Clancy's Rainbow 6 Patriots, all the team play, tactics, and realism that fans of the series love have been coupled with an exciting new narrative direction. This adds an unprecedented level of humanity that will make Tom Clancy's Rainbow 6 Patriots an extremely tense and immersive experience."
Unsurprisingly, the game will boast both cooperative and competitive multiplayer modes. If you're unfamiliar with this franchise, these games are squad-based shooters that require strategy and teamwork when approaching any objective or obstacle. And you can bet that Ubisoft is going for the ultimate in realism and authenticity.
