Rainbow Six Siege will let you do damage in creative ways

Rainbow Six Siege's procedural destruction system, a system where the environment responds to the damage players inflict, exists to encourage player creativity, according to game designer Andrew Witts. Speaking to Polygon, Witts said the procedural destruction system was balanced on gameplay opportunities. When players shoot at a gyps wall, it will break like a gyps wall. If they shoot at a wooden floor, it will fall through like a wooden floor. The damage inflicted is based on the materials of the game world, which means players won't be able to destroy entire environments, but they will be able to use them to their advantage. "Our environments are based on a layered material system," Witts said. "So in some maps, players can't destroy certain things, but they can shoot through...

Rainbow Six Siege coming in 2015, features squad-based tactical multiplayer

Rainbow Six Siege is the latest entry in the Rainbow Six franchise of tactical shooters, publisher Ubisoft announced during its E3 2014 press briefing today. The company showed pre-alpha footage of a multiplayer match between teams named Raven and Rogue, with hostage captors setting up defenses to protect their position inside a house while an invading squad of counterterrorist operatives set up a strategy to breach the home. The multiplayer match's five-on-five action got smaller and smaller as players died (and didn't respawn). The invaders took out the hostiles guarding the hostage and attempted to extract her. All the walls inside appeared to be destructible, and the soldiers were soon beset by the defenders, who took back control of the hostage. The attackers used a drone to get...

Rainbow 6: Patriots canceled, replaced by Rainbow Six Siege

"It's not in development anymore," said Alexandre Remy, Rainbow Six brand director. "The main decision was some months after Patriots was announced in 2011 that was the first moment we knew the first generation of new consoles were coming. So obviously at that moment and for a franchise such as Rainbow we needed to decide if we could make something for next-gen and we were already pretty advanced in the development of Patriots. "It would require doing a lot of extra things." He added that the decision to kill the game was not driven by the controversial nature of the title. It was more about what they wanted to do with the franchise, he said. "It was a strategic decision to make that happen," he said. "It's hard to imagine a Rainbow Six game that doesn't use the latest technology. We...
