Rainbow Six Siege Breaching PC On October 13th

Knock knock BANG!

Here's a thing not to do: don't write "SIEGE TIME!" in your calendar on October 13th. Given the degree of governmental snooping going on, who knows what sort of list your excitement for Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Siege [official site] might get you onto? Concealed in that unfunny joke was a fact: Ubisoft have announced plans to launch their hostage-holding FPS on October 13th.

I'm quite keen to have a crack at Siege, charging around tight spaces with a shotgun and popping holes in walls and floors. Pip and Graham had a crack at a closed alpha version in April, and I dug hearing what they thought of it. I am also very much into the idea of whipping out a sledgehammer to crack down a wall and open up a new path. It sounds like Siege might be one of the few games with destructible bits where that fancy tech actually means important things for the game.

There will, of course, be a DLC season pass. I'm sure you don't need me to tell you that nowadays.

The trailer Ubisoft whipped together to accompany this announcement is a pointless load of pre-rendered guff so pfff, I don't know, here's the old definitely-not-spontaneous gameplay demo from E3 2014:
