Ubisoft's tactical shooter series is back with bold new narrative direction.

The December issue of Game Informer features 12 exclusive pages of coverage detailing Rainbow 6 Patriots, the controversial new entry in the Tom Clancy series that places gamers in the shoes of Team Rainbow, a homegrown terrorist uprising, and the civilians caught in the crossfire. This new terrorist threat, called the True Patriots, hopes to restore its interpretation of American values by beheading corporate America and overthrowing the government. As a member of a new Team Rainbow cast, players must ask themselves how far they are willing to go to stop the militia.

“Terrorism has evolved, and so has Rainbow 6," said creative director David Sears. "In 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 Rainbow 6 Patriots an extremely tense and immersive experience.”

In addition to an in-depth look at the campaign, the cover story also explores the new tactical improvements being injected into the old Rainbow formula and addresses how developer Ubisoft Montreal hopes to recapture the multiplayer crown from Call of Duty and Battlefield.




2013 Release. Yep.

2013? I thought there was supposed to be a new Rainbow Six game sometime soon...did they scrap it or what?

Edit: Nevermind. I was thinking of Ghost Recon: Future Soldiers which comes out early next year.

Excited for a new RB6 but I hope they put some tactics back into the series.

It sounds like a pile of shit. Devs: If you want to be "radical", then do it within the context of the game, not as a game trying to be a movie.

Great, a game about the OWS and Tea Party movements....except you mow them down with guns!

I kinda have a feeling this will have the same reaction as Homefront did: controversial storyline but mostly forgettable gameplay.

Very excited for this one! Even if it's similar to Vegas and Vegas 2, it would still be head and shoulders above most shooters out there.

Oh snap.

Tea Party, watch out.
Tea Party loves corporations, if anything this seems like a shot to the occupy movement but probably just a coincidence since this game's likely been in the works for a long time.

I'm curious what these values could be if they're destroying Corporate America and the government. Those two seem to be on opposite sides.

Oh boy, here we go. I love Rainbow Six. What I don't love is giving the right more reasons to demonize video games.

They're trying to make us sympathetic to the big bankers and demonise the 99%ers? Not sure I can stomach that. I had enough trouble destroying evidence of US involvment in Mexico so the EU couldn't force them to respect their sovereignty in GRAW2.
David Cage game philosophy is infecting the game industry.
