Ubisoft, one of the world's largest video game publishers,
today announced its plans to launch a new Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six opus on
PlayStation®2, Xbox® and PC during Spring 2005. The game is being developed by
two of Ubisoft's award-winning studios: Red Storm Entertainment, the maker of
the original Rainbow Six, & Ubisoft's Montreal Studios.
In this new episode, you lead Team Rainbow, the world's most elite
counter-terrorist unit, as they are called into action and unfamiliar territory
to battle a bioterrorist threat. Stakes escalate as they are personally targeted
by an evil terrorist organization. Used to protecting the lives of others, Team
Rainbow must now embark on a mission to fight and save some of their own.
The next Rainbow Six installment will build on the ingredients that have made
the Rainbow Six® franchise a runaway success, and will introduce new single
player experience with a personal darker storyline, state-of-the-art equipment,
and offer gamers the chance to play as two members of Team Rainbow: Ding Chavez,
the fearless leader of Team Rainbow, and a new sniper role portrayed by Dieter
Weber, who must cover his team's movement with deadly accuracy.
I agree completely, the games they've made since switching to the Unreal engine just do not feel as good as the older ones. They are clunkier..but fun in their own way. Just not as fun as the original series.
