Rainbow Six Siege trailer introduces France's counterterrorism operatives

The latest Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege trailer, released today by publisher Ubisoft, focuses on another one of the world's elite counterterrorism units: France's GIGN.

The trailer introduces four members of the squad, each with his or her own role. Emmanuelle "Twitch" Pichon works with a ground-based shock drone that can disable electronics or distract enemies. Gilles "Montagne" Toure leads the charge into battle with a riot shield that can absorb small-arms fire. Gustave "Doc" Kateb can heal teammates at close range with his stim pistol. And Julien "Rook" Nizan can deliver armor packs in the field.

Rainbow Six Siege, a tactical first-person shooter, is in development at Ubisoft Montreal on PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One. It will be available Oct. 13, with a beta set to begin Sept. 24. For more, check out the video preview below.
