Earlier this week Ubisoft announced the latest installment in their popular Rainbow franchise, Rainbow 6 Patriots. We were excited but then they announced the game wouldn’t be out until 2013 and then we got suspicious, you hardly ever hear a game announcement this far ahead of release. Now we know that Ubisoft’s hand was forced by the high probability that “someone” was probably going to leak this so Ubisoft decided to beat them to the punch. Now in some places they are calling this a trailer but technically it isn’t and none of what you are about to see is actual gameplay footage. The footage below is actually called a “target video” which are often used internally to convey the vision and theme for a game but they are rarely if ever seen by the public.
Don’t really pay any attention to the graphics because the game won’t look anything like this but you can focus on the overall feel of the game which is much darker than we have ever seen in this franchise and tremendously different from what shooter fans are used to with titles like Call Of Duty and Battlefield. If the two major decisions that Rainbow had to make in this short piece of footage is any indication then players will be stressed to the max in terms of how far they will go for the greater good. Now check it out and let us know what you think in the comments.
