Rainbow 6 Patriots Officially Announced.

#1 Edited by OtakuGamer (1230 posts) -

About time a new Rainbow Six game showed up, I loved Vegas 1 and 2. I just hope they don't fuck this one up. *Looking at Future Soldier*

"In Tom Clancy’s Rainbow 6 Patriots, Team Rainbow faces a new and very real threat called the “True Patriots,” a highly-trained, well-organized revolutionary group that claim the American government is irrevocably corrupted by greedy politicians and corporate special interests. The True Patriots will do whatever it takes to reclaim their country. Playing as Rainbow, players will face critical scenarios that will require them to make tough ethical decisions in order to stop this new breed of terrorists.
In addition to the immersive single-player storyline, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow 6 Patriots will introduce a huge variety of new innovative co-op and multi-player experiences. Players will be rewarded for working as a team and mastering the game’s new features that enhance communication and tactical execution between teammates. Success will come from a mix of split-second decision making and working to coordinate attacks against the enemy."

Do I get to kill more Mexicans like in every other Tom Clancy game since 2009?

LA GRANADA!

Didn't the Xbox version of Rainbow Six 3 come out in like 2001? But those were like ,Venezuelans or something.

Man, this is the exact reason I want to make video games. Just look at how exciting this all sounds. And then realize that when the game comes out, it's going to be an extravagant mess of "HEY LET'S GO SHOOT DUDES".
 
I have fleeting hope.
 
Also, hope Jack Ryan is in the game somewhere.

What do you think are the chances of a now dated "Double Rainbow" reference, or achievement?

You apparently get to kill cops this time around.

EDIT: Oops, sorry, I am wrong. You only get to disable them. So it's "shoot", not "kill".

Tough ethical decisions and spec-ops don't really mix but whateves. Love me some RB6 though so I'm glad they finally announced a new game. And please have a good T-hunt mode. Anything out yet on the new location? Kinda sounds like multiple settings.

Rainbow Six is still a thing?

#11 Edited by Hitchenson (4682 posts) -

Sounds like the "True Patriots" have the right idea. I want to be on their side.

After Conviction and seeing the new Ghost Recon, I have literally 0 hope.

@Freezer_Burn: *BOOP!* Double Rainbow Unlocked: Played Co-Op!

I am excited. It looks like the game is going to be more like Vegas than the xbox games, so I hope they at least make the cover snappier. The gameplay stuff in that concept video looked raw and I know Ubisoft has a ton of time to polish the game, but I am a little worried they will not be able to polish the game and make it feel like a modern shooter while keeping the cover mechanic in the game.

Just wow. Talk about riding the fine line of game content. Explains the moral choices hook though. Much controversy will ensue. Concept stuff but gutsy and bound to be watered down I'd guess. Hmmm.

Definitely did not expect that ending. I'm getting a huge Heavy Rain vibe from the concept video.

Yea, was not expecting that. Wonder how much of that will be in the final game. Also, I think it was pretty cool they released that video after learning that it might get leaked. Nice to just see them be up front about it.

Well they are right....hope I get to join them and overthrow the government.

Rainbow Six is amazing, and it's a shame some people on these forums don't seem to have a clue as to what the past games were about. If I'm correct, they said in an interview a few years ago (maybe even just last year) that they were going to be making this more like the original Rainbow Six games, though also cinematic at the same time. I just hope it follows up with a great soundtrack like the rest of the Rainbow Six games, sounding very patriotic.

Cannot wait.

Co-op confirmed. Better be a terrorist hunt equivalent.

Me buying this confirmed.

I FUCKING LOVE RB6. Though, I don't come to RB6 "to make tough ethical decisions".

#23 Posted by CrimsonNoir (401 posts) -

That targeted footage got me interested, hope they keep those controversial choices in the final product.

It looks amazing. If it's this, but still being worked on, all I can say is wow. The ending of the video was also kind of sad. It seems like they'll be getting some of the characters back from Vegas too, I think it was Michael. I hope if this is what the game will be, it has slightly better graphics and voice acting (though what's there is already fantastic).

Fuck man, I just want to lean.

@Xolare: Oh, like in the older ones before Vegas huh? Yeah, I don't know. I used to love lean, but if they can make better alternatives, I'm OK with it.

R6 used to be tactical experience however it has faded into -just another point your gun and fire at everything- game.

Bring on SWAT 5.

pretty pumped for this, loved the video and it surprised me in everyway

Team Rainbow vs. the La-li-lu-le-lo? I'm down.

That video was pretty cool. The cupcake part with his wife was hilariously bad though.

I'm more psyched about the new family-friendly Rainbow Six game coming out:

#34 Posted by artgarcrunkle (970 posts) -

Can't wait to get 10 kills with Ding Chavez and summon some dogs to go loud on tangos or whatever this is going to end up being.

#35 Posted by Hector (3359 posts) -

I really enjoyed the Rainbow Six Vegas. Faster paced Splinter Cell experience.

#36 Posted by Jack268 (3387 posts) -

I hope Adam Jensen is in the full game too and plays a prominent role.

I hope those tough ethical decisions come in the form of a QTE

Why are they making you try to stop these people?
