Idris Elba ‘Sieges the Day’ in ‘Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege’ Trailer

Idris Elba features in Ubisoft’s biggest live-action TV spot to date for the upcoming game “Tom Clancy’s Rainbow 6 Siege.”

“Siege” marks the first console release in the franchise since “Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Vegas 2” was released in 2008 (a mobile game, “Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Shadow Vanguard,” was released in 2011). Ubisoft is pulling out all the stops to drive back old fans and bring in new by hiring director Seb Edwards and two-time Academy Award-winning film editor Angus Wall.

“Survival is earned through improvisation and destruction,” Elba says in the trailer.

The first-person shooter puts an emphasis on the destructibility of the environment. The trailer demonstrates this by showing an attacker using a sledgehammer to pound a hole through a second level floor down onto shooters on the first level.

Teamwork is also a point of emphasis. Players will control different operators and use their different perks, abilities, and equipment in tandem to accomplish their goals.

“Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege” releases Dec. 1 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
