“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.
