After the announcement at Ubisoft’s press conference, the publisher released the first screenshots and information on Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege, which will be released next year on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
The game is being developed at Ubisoft Montreal using the studio’s proprietary Realblast Engine.
We also get a description of the title’s gameplay:
For the first time in Rainbow Six, players will engage in sieges, a brand-new style of assault. Enemies now have the means to transform their environments into strongholds: they can trap, fortify, and create defensive systems to prevent breach by Rainbow teams.
To face this challenge, players have a level of freedom unrivaled by any previous Rainbow Six game. Combining tactical maps, observation drones, and a new rappel system, Rainbow teams have
more options than ever before to plan, attack, and diffuse these situations.
We also learn that thanks to the procedural destruction engine included in the game, everything in the environment reacts realistically to the ordinance used on it, and bullets cause damage and destruction according to their caliber.
