E3 2014: Ubisoft provides details for Rainbow Six Siege

Ubisoft had one of the better press conferences at E3, showing the titles that will come out this year and also next year.

They ended the briefing in grand style by showing a new game that’s currently in development, and this is Rainbow Six Siege.

The footage that was shown is pre-alpha, so obviously they have a long way to go. However, it did provide of glimpse of what people can expect from the next Rainbow Six game.

The Ubiblog had a chance to talk with Game Designer Andrew Witts about the destruction and other modes that will be in the game.

“The procedural destruction system makes up the core of the experience on both the attacker side and the defender side.”

So blowing a hole through a wall with a shotgun and having a new line-of-sight opportunity for your buddy or for you to kind of get the drop on the attackers coming up the stairs is something that we would never have been able to do on the previous generation of consoles.”

In talking about the modes, Witts mentioned that the single-payer and mutiplayer experiences are very important. He didn’t provide any details on either mode, but said it would be part of the game.

The main goal with this reveal was to show the destruction aspect and also how you can rescue a hostage. They do plan on sharing more information about Rainbow Six Siege in the future.

There is currently no release date for the game. I believe this will be a great title to play once it releases, and it should do the series proud.
