Ubisoft has released a new trailer that has detailed the official release date for Rainbow Six: Siege. The trailer has revealed that the game is set to drop on the Xbox One, PS4 and PC on October 13th, later this year.
The official website also details that there are three different versions of the game available, including the Art of Siege Edition, the Gold Edition and the Tactical Elite Edition. Each one is available for pre-order and gives gamers a little bit of something extra for putting some extra coin into Ubisoft's coffers.
The Art of Siege Edition will contain the full game, a collector's box, a Gold Skins DLC pack for the in-game weapons, an exclusive 120 page tactical game guide for tips, tricks and strategies.
The Gold Edition includes the standard game, a season pass and the Tiger Skin pack for all the in-game weapons.
The Tactical Elite Edition is available exclusively from Uplay.
For now, the details on the three editions listed above are for the EMEA territories, but Ubisoft notes that they will reveal the details for the Americas at a later date. The blog also notes that anyone who pre-orders the game will instantly get into closed beta ahead of the game's release.
Rainbow Six: Siege is a return to form for the series, focusing on tactical team gameplay as opposed to the standard run-and-gun gameplay found in most of today's shooters. One of the big new additions to the game is the physics-based destruction that Ubisoft is putting into the game.
Players will be able to add charges to walls, floors and ceilings and blow them out in order to create new ways to tactically attack opponents. It's also possible to use high-powered weapons to shoot through the wall.
So far, the modes include team elimination just like the older PC titles for Rainbow Six where if you died during the round you stayed dead until the round ended. Whether or not there will be additional modes tossed in or different modifiers to switch up the gameplay hasn't been revealed yet.
Another big mystery about Rainbow Six: Siege is whether or not the game will have a fully functional single-player experience? Some gamers are worried that if the game is multiplayer only that it's going to limit the potential replay values of the game.
Whether Rainbow Six: Siege has a full single-player mode or not is something we likely won't find out until June. Why June? Because that's when E3 happens. It's likely that they will roll out all the details and answer many of the community's questions and concerns regarding the game's single-player at E3... well, that's assuming there is anything to answer and the game isn't just a dedicated multiplayer title.
Rainbow Six: Siege is due for release on October 13th, 2015 for the Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
