VIDEO GAMES: Rainbow 6 Patriots Announced, Will Rappel Down In 2013!?

A new iteration in the popular Rainbow Six series has been announced. The last game released was Rainbow Six Vegas 2, back in 2008. Apparently the game will have a feature uncommon in shooters. Hit the jump for more details...

Developed by Ubisoft Montreal with assistance from Ubisoft Toronto and Red Storm, Rainbow 6 Patriots will follow the counterterrorism Team Rainbow squad as it tries to put down a group of American insurgents known as the True Patriots. As players look to suppress the True Patriots' budding revolution, they will be faced with "tough ethical decisions," according to Ubisoft.

"Terrorism has evolved and so has Rainbow 6. In Tom Clancy's Rainbow 6 Patriots, all the team play, tactics, and realism that fans of the series love have been coupled with an exciting new narrative direction," Ubisoft creative director David Sears said in announcing the title. "This adds an unprecedented level of humanity that will make Tom Clancy's Rainbow 6 Patriots an extremely tense and immersive experience."

The game will also include cooperative and competitive multiplayer modes that aim to encourage communication and teamwork.

I've been waiting for Ubisoft to announce a sequel to Rainbow Six Vegas 2 for some time. These so called "True Patriots" are people who are fed up with the greed on Wall Street and plot to attack New York City. The mention of players facing "tough ethical decisions" is apparently some kind of branching morality system where your decisions will affect the fate of innocent bystanders, and ultimately the story. I've played a lot of shooters and even I can't say I remember anyone of them having a feature like this.

This news is kind of bittersweet. As happy as I am this has been announced, 2013 is a long wait.

The game will be released on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC sometime in 2013.

No the site should not change its name. It clearly has a video game section on the side of the page. There'a room for everything on the site.
