E3 2014: “Rainbow Six Siege” Proves Multiplayer Matters

The popular and annual Electronic Entertainment Expo, better known as, E3, was held last week at the Los Angeles Convention Center, introducing a variety of new games for both next generation and current generation systems. To go over every highly anticipated game introduced would simply take ages. As a fan of online multiplayer games, I can tell you that Ubisoft’s Rainbow Six: Siege has taken multiplayer cooperation to a whole new level. In their game mode, one team of terrorists hold a captive in a house or venue, while the other team of soldiers are tasked with rescue. While in most games, the tactic most called upon is brute force, Ubisoft surprises us with the use of a drone to survey the area and provide the rescue team with the layout of the house, location of the hostage, and even the whereabouts of the terrorists. Players have the ability to blow up walls and floorboards, creating new doorways and providing clear shots, making for a very destructible environment. If you’ve ever watched a military based movie and wanted to be part of the S.E.A.L. team on a rescue mission, this is your chance. Rainbow Six: Siege is coming to you on PS4, Xbox One, and PC when its released in 2015.
