The newest Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six title will not feature a single player campaign. Rainbow Six :Siege Art Director, Scott Mitchell, has revealed at this year’s EGX event the only solo-play game modes are tutorials to learn the different operators and their devices before using them online.
Mitchell expressed ““There is no story mode per se. You go through training, where you get to experience different operators and their devices. You can play against enemy AI in co-op through all the maps. You can customize matches, so that’s what we’re offering on the single-player side of things.”
Despite the lack of offline game modes, Rainbow Six: Siege compensates in unlocks. Mitchell explained “It’s a pretty good training ground, and on top or that you’re unlocking the same content as you would playing in PvP. You’re still gaining stars, reknown points, and new operatives”
The beta testing for the online pvp game modes has started, available to players who signed up earlier in the year. Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Siege is one of three Tom Clancy games under development at Ubisoft, the others being The Division and Ghost Recon: Wildlands. Rainbow Six: Siege will be released on December 1 2015, with 11 maps available at launch and additional content being added in the near future as free dlc.
