Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege – Closed Alpha for PC
Ubisoft has just announced a closed alpha phase for Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege. It will be exclusive to the PC, and players can register for the closed alpha now at the official website. Ubisoft released a new trailer for Rainbow Six Siege that can be viewed below.
“The Rainbow Six team is prepared to assault and the enemy can counter that assault with tools,” said Xavier Marquis, creative director for the game,
“We’re really pushing the asymmetrical aspect of the game up to the point where each round is separated into two phases where there’s a preparation phase for each side, attackers and defenders, that’s why you see where the defense is deploying, what strategies those guys are using, where they’re putting the objectives… and you select with your teammates the path you’re going to take it’s like a sandbox, so you can approach it from any side, so even the top floor. After that preparation phase you switch into the assault, so trying to execute your plan as much as possible. so we’re big on having the asymmetrical aspect in the game.
“We are able to bring a lot of tactics to this mode. It’s more real-time strategy instead of pre-set everything on the map.”
“We started with some different ideas, but the moment we said we wanted to try the one life [concept] on the prototype, that’s when we started to see results in terms of tension and experience,”he continued,
“Everyone was like, ‘Shit it’s bringing so much to how you play,’ that I knew it that was how we were going to make the game and the whole game is going to be one life.”
PC is the leading platform for Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege, so the Closed Alpha will start there
The idea of having one life in Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege,falls right along the fiction of the game’s universe. A military shooter, starring a small squad of soldiers, where the siege aspect provides players with more protection from bullets. This lowers the chances of a death eight after a match starts.
“PC is the lead development platform and we feel that it’s natural to start by testing the game on this platform,”
