TerroHunt Co-op Returns In Rainbow Six: Siege

Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege [official site] might not be a serious, slow affair like Rainbow Six games of yore, but it is at least bringing back some old favourites. The Terrorist Hunt co-op side will return when the supercop FPS launches in October, Ubisoft announced tonight during its E3 show. It’ll have a scenario-based single-player campaign too. What had seemed an interesting but limited competitive multiplayer FPS now sounds a whole lot more enticing. Come, look, Ubisoft made moving pictures about these things.

Along with a mode called Classic TerroHunt, the co-op side will offer modes like having to breach fortified areas to disarm bombs and one where you need to protect an NPC from AI trying to assassinate it. Sounds good, that. It’ll have matchmaking if you don’t have chums. If you don’t want to play with anyone at all, TerroHunt can be played on your lonesome, or there’s always the campaign. Here’s a new trailer going into that a bit:

Yes, that is Angela Bassett. You can see her palling around with Aisha Tyler during Ubisoft’s streamed event (skip to 1:09:15 if that link doesn’t take you there). There’s also supposedly live gameplay of TerroHunt after that, which is surely more fun to watch than the swished-up trailer.

The game’s due on October 13th.

    “Cinematic” trailers truly are a waste of time. Show us actual gameplay with actual humans playing, dammit.

    So far this looks disappointingly un-Rainbow Six-like. Closer to Counterstrike or Dirty Bomb, really.

      “Closer to… Dirty Bomb, really.”

      If you’re going to criticize something, at least make sure you know what you’re talking about… >_>

        Care to explain? I’m playing a lot of DB at the moment (it’s great IMHO). The graphics style and relatively twitchy gunfire in the video remind me of it, and do not remind me at all of the old R6 games.

    This game will not work for the first 2 weeks, because uplay. After that there will be too few people playing it for it to have a balanced machmaking experiance. Also, they said they will keep players engaded will lots of DLC. And as we know lots of DLCs is always a good thing in a MP oriented game.

    So why even bother… Siedge will probably be as good as dead in a few months. Simply because Ubisoft.

    What, no article about Space Anno? That was genuinely the only thing I was interested in at the Ubi presser.

    This will surely be good fun, but I kind of liked the idea of that interesting but limited game that focused its efforts on the multiplayer. The Rainbow Six series lost contact with its roots long ago anyway, but this game seems interesting in its own right. I can only hope that they don’t dilute its chances by adding a bazillion game modes and dlc. Hope against hope.
