Siege Is Better Now Than It Was At Launch
Rainbow Six Siege looked incredible at E3—good enough to be our favorite game of the show. First seen in Far Cry 4 , SSBC is Ubisoft's current-generation, self-made, cross-platform AO technique that utilizes up to 12 samples (8 in Rainbow Six Siege) to deliver significantly improved AO shadowing compared to SSAO, which was seen in previous Ubisoft titles.
Ubisoft has launched the first big piece of content for Year 3 of Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Siege today. That may not have been the case, as many multiplayer games have tried - and failed - to craft a similar experience. Developed by Ubisoft Montreal, Rainbow Six: Siege is an asymmetrical tactical shooter that launched in early December 2015, breaking a long silence from the series, whose previous entry, Rainbow Six: Vegas 2, dates back to 2008.
Has been playing games for about 30 years, so you'd think he'd be good at them by now. Over this weekend, Ubisoft finally showcased the Outbreak mode coming to Rainbow Six: Siege. For several weeks now we've been foaming at the mouth and working our way through teases for the upcoming Rainbow Six Siege "zombies" mode called Outbreak.
Rainbow Six: Siege is set to launch for the PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One platforms.

Lead your team of unique, counter-terrorist Rainbow operators through tense and thrilling combat scenarios, and achieve victory through smart preparation and strategic improvisation.
We know there's a closed alpha going on not because we were informed by Ubisoft, but because some leaked gameplay footage has arrived by way of All Games Beta. I definitely don't think it's bad, but I don't enjoy the type of gameplay that it offers. Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six® Siege is an intense, new approach to the first-person multiplayer shooter experience.
Ubisoft's support for Rainbow Six: Siege was excellent throughout 2016, with four free DLC packs released that each brought a new map and pair of operators to the game. The same thing goes for breaching charges, jammers, drones, you name it - Siege could have been a mess of random explosions, but Ubisoft did a great job of limiting players and their supplies without hindering their tactics.
Tactical Realism: a variation of the standard competitive multiplayer modes, added with the release of the Operation Skull Rain DLC. Rainbow Six Siege, on the other hand, has created an incredibly in-depth system designed around playing as a highly-lethal squad - it's a far cry from the arcade-like style of something like Halo or Call of Duty.
Ubisoft was quick to respond, though, and by the end of the launch week had the situation under control - but not before the official forums were awash with complaints from frustrated players. For anyone who wants something a bit more tactical with their multiplayer shenanigans, Rainbow Six Siege is available now.
It's had its issues along the way, but if ever there was a poster child for the benefits of the GaaS (games as a service) model, it would be Rainbow Six Siege. Face intense close quarters combat, high lethality, tactical decision making, team play, and explosive action at every moment.
Get the new Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six® Siege Advanced Edition that includes the full original game, 600 Rainbow Six Credits, and new bonus content from the time-limited and exclusive Outbreak Collection. Playing Rainbow Six: Siege again has been an interesting experience.
You can find the official gameplay trailer below, as well as another official video providing some quick tips on this Outbreak mode. Bomb: a competitive multiplayer mode, in which the attackers are tasked with locating and defusing one of two bombs. Alongside the reveal, Ubisoft has released a trailer for the Outbreak mode, setting the scene for the event.
While that's true for most games, I think you really need to become very intimate with its maps, and the functionality of the different operators to get the most out R6 Highlights of it. In other words, it's a game that you need to invest time into - it's not very well suited for casual play.
