Tom Clancy's Rainbow 6: Patriots - Debut Trailer

Where the government fails these guys step in.

Watch Video

HELL...YES!

You have no idea how much I love Rainbow Six.
Terrorist hunt is the best co-op experience I've ever had, it's just so intense. I really hope they bring it back.

Fox news is going to have a freak out about this game. I'm amazed they didn't after the target footage was released.

Personally, I'm fairly interested. The subject matter could be done right and make this and interesting stand out among the dime-a-dozen shooters.

I am watching this without sound at work.

I am confused

So that means we can hunt and kill investment fond managers and venture capitalists? I'd buy that game in a heartbeat.

See, they don't really look like the kind of terrorists they're trying to be. They look like failed politicians that decided to use a movement to put themselves in power. Or just...go business-suit-Punisher. Which is weird.

Pretty creative murder there.

When the government fails, only highly trained murderers will save us?

What if you need a library built or the movement of food and dairy to those in need?

Here come the heroes to save the daaaay, with a limited skill set in violence and demolitions.

Umm I think you guys are assuming you're playing the guys that stormed that office. You won't be, you'll be doing something, I HOPE, more interesting. You're going to be protecting the government from their people, and that just opens up a whole host of fascinating possibilities for story telling as well as action. My fear is that they're just going to label those people loons and keep the story simple when it should be gut wrenching difficult choices. There is a gameplay trailer out already... or something like it.
Also on top of that you got Rainbow Six which isn't actually under the command of the United States, it takes orders from NATO. So for the Six team to be there the government would have to have asked for them to come as is the case for any country they go to. Which means you're going to have foreign nationals firing on US citizens at their request. Anyway here's the second trailer it's even better.

EDIT: There is another new one out, neat

I really want them to bring back the planning portions of these games, rather than the on-the-fly squad commands they switched to.

Mr Walsh got what he deserved!

So, theese guys kill a capitalistic pig. On the surface, i don't see a problem there.

But:
They kill a capitalistic pig by throwing him on the street with explosives attached, destroying AT LEAST (i counted) 10 cars and killing 10 (only drivers)- 40 (10 full cars) innocent people.

So, as a german i have to ask:
Is this collateral damage or stupidity by the guys making (and/or buying) such a game or am i just not patriotic enough to understand this game (understandable, because i'm not american) ?

I would also hope that the story is a little more interesting and realistic than it was in Vegas. The terrorists were so bloody generic and mustache-twirlingly evil. I appreciate not having to gun down another 400 Bin Ladin clones from Generikistan, but you need to put some effort in their motivations. A hideously costly all-out invasion with more terrorists than some nations have soldiers, in which you use up your only prototype WMD all so you can capture more of those exact WMDs you already had?

I fear that if they do put some effort into the narritive, Fox news is going to bitch about non-US troops from Rainbow are shooting at Tea-party styled terrorists, never mind the thousands of russians we gun down in other games.

But lets face it, Raven shield was the last actual Rainbow Six games. The vegas games weren't bad (Lockdown totally was though), but they had little to do with the Rainbow Six titles. In the old games, you were actually an anti-terrorist unit, called in to assault a small group of dangerous criminals or terrorists in an open location with multiple routes, extract any hostages and get out. In the new games you're a team of rambo's that just wades through a linear collection of nigh-endless enemy spawn points. Somehow, I doubt Ubisoft is going to change that back.

As someone who loved the original Rainbow 6 on the N64 and playing R6: 3 Athena Sword on steam regulary, i can't wait.

It was mostly done for shock response by the press, at least that is what i presume.

It was probably done more for shock value, but you'd be surprised with the extremes to which people will go to, and how they rationalize it, in the name of "patriotism", which is hardly exclusive to America.

I give it a 9 for a creative death. Still, haven't seen a Rainbow Six game in ages; this could be good.

Please note the american flag worked into the sub-title.

Concering original post now.

Uh... 3 things.

Who are the good guy?
Have Rainbow become contracted killers?
Patriots? Rainbow is an international organisation and this has a distinctly american vibe.
*shrug*

Heh, I thought that too. Also, doesn'y say who is doing the saving, and which side relative to them you are on.

That's a point, yeah. Maybe the US has conquered the rest of the world so everyone's a citizen now?

Release is 2013, whats with all the R6 trailers lately? Testing the public echo to the brutality shown? Oh Ubisoft how low can you go?

Amerikka forever!

I'd really like a rainbow campaign game where I could be the terrorists. Plot changes partially based on how well your terrorist group does. Do you get blitzed, hold out and die well, win? Campaign moves forward from there.

Make the rainbows damn good, but possible to trap and outwit. Jump perspective between all your terrorist mooks, with some being awful shots and quite anxious to others being cold killers. An evolution of the tower defence game, in third person?

Yep yep yep yep yep, uhuh, uhuh.

Yeah, would be nice to play defence for once.

Mind you, I'd just always stick everyone watching a few bottlenecks from various different angles, and/or stick heaps of terrorists in with the hostages, because you could easily make things borderline impossible for Rainbow.

Actually, I think those are the bad guys. And instead of being generic defaultiztan. They have an actual purpose, so its a bit more grey instead of black/white.

Build a human fort of hostages?
