New Rainbow Six Patriots Details

Juicy details about the recently announced title.

Rainbow Six Patriots was just announced only about a month ago and we're getting more details about the latest addition to the franchise. Developer Ubisoft Montreal has released some of the features that will be in the game when it's released, as well as the premise to the game.

Some of the features include a one button squad command mechanic, a new scan mode to infiltrate areas, and team based multiplayer. New approaches to the gunplay and various other features present in previous titles, such as rappeling and breaching, were also hinted at.

The story seems to be an important part of the game as it was stressed that "terrorism has evolved" and players will be going up against a new terrorist group know as "True Patriots," comprised of militias determined to overthrow the American government corrupted by politicians and corporations. It also says that players will have to make ethical decisions.

See the press release for full details. Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Patriots will be released for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.

Press Release

Team Rainbow faces a new and very real threat called the “True Patriots,” a highly-trained, well-organized group of militias. The True Patriots are capitalizing on the growing sense of frustration and anger in a modern day America that they feel is irrevocably corrupted by greedy politicians and corporate special interests. Lead by a calculating figurehead named Tredway, this grassroots, homespun, terrorist organization will stop at nothing to overthrow the government and financial institutions to reclaim their country. Capturing the reality of modern-day terrorism, players will take on the role of a new Team Rainbow member as they face critical scenarios that will require them to make tough ethical decisions in order to stop this new breed of terrorists.

Developed by Ubisoft Montreal with the support of Ubisoft Toronto and Red Storm, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow 6 Patriots not only revolves around a dynamic single-player storyline but also introduce a huge variety of new innovative co-op and multi-player experiences.

Tom Clancy’s Rainbow 6 Patriots Key Features Include:

• UNPRECEDENTED NARRATIVE – Patriots’ storyline explores an ultra-realistic what-if scenario inspired by real events and characters. The game will allow players to experience events from multiple perspectives creating an unprecedented level of immersion.

• A NEW THREAT FOR A NEW TEAM - Terrorism has evolved and Team Rainbow must face an organized militia of home-grown insurgents. As the leader of a new squad, players will wrestle with difficult ethical decisions and determine if the doing-whatever-it-takes mentality is needed to stop the enemy.

• ENHANCED SQUAD MANAGEMENT - At the press of one button, the Rainbow squad will perform the most efficient and deadly tactic given the context of the situation. When extreme measures are required, or when players call for it, you can take full control of your squad to plan the perfect assault.

• EVOLVED COMBAT – The game’s combat techniques have been pushed to the next level with cover and weapon systems redesigned to accommodate every combat situation. New Rappel and Breach mechanics are now enriched with multiple new techniques including Wall & Ceiling Breach, Fast Rope Rappel, inverted ‘Aussie Style Rappel’, Infiltrate & Subdue, just to name a few.

• INTENSE MULTIPLAYER EXPERIENCE - Players will be rewarded for working as a team and mastering the game’s new features that enhance communication and tactical execution between teammates. Once such feature found in the pre-game online lobby is the Sandtable, a holographic display that helps acquaint players with the level maps before they jump into the action. This will help players strategically coordinate attacks and add a new dimension to squad tactics.

• SURPRISE AND OVERPOWER ENEMIES – Utilize the game’s new Scan mode to strategically breach and infiltrate areas. This new tool will provide a thermal read on the situation, allowing you to determine the squad’s best course to overwhelm and defeat enemies.

Considering the recent events in our country, the Patriots sound more like a militia version of the 99%. So does that mean that we play as the bad guy in this game? *gasp8

Given where Ubisoft Montreal is headquartered, perhaps it may be time for us to "Blame Canada," and invade.
