It's great when developers release full, unedited gameplay content instead of sending out scripted CGI trailers for their upcoming games, and this is exactly what Ubisoft have done with Rainbow Six Siege by releasing a 24 minute video of the game in action.
Within the 24 minutes, two full games of hostage rescue are played out, allowing viewers to get a good understanding of the game and what sets it apart from other current FPS games.
At the start of each Hostage Rescue game in the 24 minute video, players begin with a construction phase. For the criminal team, the construction phase involves reinforcing a certain building, whilst the Rainbow Six team must use their time to view the area via remote controlled drones.
After the game starts up, you'll see some pretty interesting gameplay from the Rainbow Six team, and I think that a lot of gamers will be drawn in by this. In Rainbow Six Siege, it looks like team strategy, communication and tactics will come in much more handy than a fast trigger reflexes, and I think that's a refreshing change for the FPS genre.
Whilst a lot of previous Rainbow Six games have put focus into the single player experience, Siege is looking to be a very enjoyable multiplayer game, too. Producer of the project, Sebastian Labbe recently stated, "What I can say is that for sure, we're no different from the other online shooters. We want to be online - we're providing a strong PVP game, and if we want that we need to create a community. So if we wait until the launch, I expect it will be too late," suggesting that a beta for Siege is currently being planned out.
Rainbow Six Siege is set for release in 2015 for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
