It’s said to be ‘the next big thing’ in the first person shooter category, but the highly anticipated Rainbow Six Siege will not have a story mode, as recently confirmed by Ubisoft. Like many games who feature co-op purposes, such as Evolve, Star Wars Battlefront, or even the more popular CounterStrike: Global Offensive, the game will focus on online gameplay.
- Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege will not have a campaign mode
- The beta has been extended to October 1st
- The game will focus more on multiplayer mode and online matchmaking
- So far, it has been met with positive reviews
According to art director Scott Mitchell, “there is no story mode per se” that will guide the players through possible campaigns around the new world. There will be a way for them to play single player with computer controlled AIs, but that is the extent of solo gameplay.
Most of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege will be enjoyed online through matchmaking, to be enjoyed either with friends or random players. This strategy has proved itself not to be a hitch for multiple videogames currently in play. In fact, the cooperation and coordination required has made them the huge successes they are today.
While a story mode can delve a gamer deeper into the world, multiplayer is where all the goodness gathers. There’s something undeniably fun about focusing on teamwork, that can also admittedly be incredibly frustrating, depending on your luck with team mates.
According to Mitchell, players will have the opportunity to enjoy single player after going through a training of sort, in order to learn the maps, gadgets and weapons available. There will be offline content available, including the Terrorist Hunt mode that those with the precious beta key have already likely experienced.
And, speaking of which, Ubisoft has announced earlier today that their beta will be extending for another three days, until October 1st. Players have encountered issues with matchmaking and long waits until they could be connected to a server and enjoy the game. It had limited their play time drastically.
The developer has stated that they have fixed the issues, but are offering their apologies for those who have pre-ordered the game for the purpose of the beta. They have taken the feedback into consideration and worked out more of problems to alleviate their frustrations. However, overall, the game has received excellent reviews.
In fact, Rainbow Six Siege has been met with incredibly positive feedback from players and critics alike. It has been suggested that if it reaches or even surpasses its expectations, it may even find a spot in the professional scene of gaming, to stand shoulder to shoulder with Call of Duty or CounterStrike: Global Offensive.
Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege will be officially released on December 1st for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
