Yesterday Ubisoft announced Tom Clancy's Rainbow 6 Patriots. The latest edition of the franchise is being developed by Ubisoft Montreal with the support of Ubisoft Toronto and Red Storm for a 2013 release date on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.

We talked about the sweet preview gameplay video, and now we have it for your viewing pleasure. Check out the first six minute action-packed Rainbow 6 Patriot's video below:

The game will revolve around a single-player storyline that "captures the reality of modern-day terrorism and allows players to experience it from multiple characters’ perspectives." Trust me when I say the collective G4 editorial staff found this footage insanely awesome.

“Terrorism has evolved, and so has Rainbow 6," said David Sears, creative director at Ubisoft. "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.” He continues, “This adds an unprecedented level of humanity that will make Tom Clancy’s Rainbow 6 Patriots an extremely tense and immersive experience.”

Team Rainbow will face a threat called the "True Patriots", a highly-trained, well-organized group that believe the American government is corrupt. These True Patriots "will do whatever it takes to reclaim their country." As a member of Team Rainbow, you'll face tough ethical decisions in order to stop these terrorists.

will also feature co-op and multiplayer experiences. These modes will test your communication and tactical execution skills between teammates.


I have to admit that I'm not too familiar with the Rainbow 6 franchise as a whole, but just seeing the test footage of the new game gets me really hyped up. Touch ethical decisions on the fly isn't really something that we're used to seeing in first-person shooters today and if they all work like they do in that video, this game is going to help elevate the genre to new heights.

What do you think of the announcement of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow 6 Patriots? Did you check out the video from GI? What were your impressions?
