Last Saturday, Ubisoft registured domains for Rainbow Six: Patriots. Yesterday, Patriots was officially released and confirmed to be released in 2013 for the Playstation 3, Xbox 360 & PC. The last title, Rainbow Six: Vegas 2, came out three years ago in 2008. Not really knowing much from the series, I don’t know what to expect from the series other than expecting a simulated military shooter.
According to Ubisoft Creative Director David Sears, Rainbow 6: Patriots will have “an exciting-new narrative dirrection”. From what I’ve been told of the series, Vegas was a large departure from the original titles in the Tom Clancy franchise. Unfortunately, ‘Vegas’ was the only experience that I have with the series. David continues:
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.
Featuring Kinect connectivity, Patriots will include co-op & multiplayer modes similar to the Vegas titles. For the month of December, Game Informer will be using two different covers for featuring the title. You can see those below:
