Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege is a first person shooter developed by Ubisoft Montreal. Released on December 1st 2015 Rainbow Six Siege is a multiplayer focused game within the Rainbow Six series. It has less of a focus on single player missions and narrative with a heavier amount of the content focusing on the competitive multiplayer modes of the game. What story there is in Siege is often vague and has little impact.
In this LP I will be quickly covering the single player content then we will move onto the multiplayer modes. I’ll be showing off each character, map, and each mode. Viewers will be able to vote on what I show off and when, selecting operators, levels, and modes to see. As of right now it will comprise of solo post commentary done by me but in time that may change and some friendly faces may be added in.
As for the story it takes place after the deactivation of Rainbow Six. During a time when terrorism is on the rise a new leader named Six has started to gather up individuals from special forces, police forces, and armed forces, to form a new Rainbow Six team. These new Rainbow Six operators are then tasked with defending key targets from terrorists or attacking terrorist cells directly. Each character has their own background and reason for joining Rainbow Six which is revealed in their bios. The main bulk of the story follows these operators as they attack/defend objectives and try to put a halt to this international epidemic.
For a more in depth description of the game Rainbow Six Siege is a multiplayer shooter with an objective in every match whether that be to rescue/defend a hostage, disarm/defend a bomb, or to secure a package. A large amount of the settings in Siege are destructible with walls, barricades, windows, trap doors, ceilings/floors, and a great deal of the objects within any of the levels. The combat is asymmetrical with two opposing sides, attackers and defenders. There are different operators for attack and defense with four from every CTU(Counter-Terrorism Unit) that came with the base and two operators from each CTU that was released as free DLC. That is two attackers and two defenders, or one attacker and one defender, from each CTU. Each character comes with a special gadget that only they can use which makes each character function as their own class. Each character’s loadout is customizable allowing you to decide which guns they’ll be using and what sort of attachments on them there will be, along with secondary gadgets like grenades or breaching charges. Aside from the competitive multiplayer the game also features a co-operative mode called Terrorist Hunt which can be played if PvP is simply not your thing. Siege is frequently updated and has seen a lot of love from the developers causing it to be an ever evolving every changing game with new characters and levels added for free every few months.
