Started somewhat predictable, but liked where the ending took it. Kinda glad 2013 is the release point. Too many games on the docket!

New Rainbow Six: Patriots Details Breach

Ubisoft has released some new details about its upcoming Rainbow Six sequel. Cut through the PR gumph and there's some interesting stuff in there.

According to the release, Rainbow Six: Patriots explores a "what-if" scenario inspired by real events and people. Taking the role of the squad's leader, you must guide Team Rainbow (which still doesn't sound very macho does it?) in a battle against organised militia and home-grown insurgents. It also promises to challenge players with "difficult ethical decisions."

As ever with Rainbow Six games, you will be able to command your team. But this time Ubisoft are promising "full-control," with your squad performing "the most efficient and deadly tactic given the context of the situation." Killing people in the face then, yeah?

In addition to all this there's some new combat techniques on offer too, including revised Rappel and Breach mechanics. These include new techniques like "Wall & Ceiling Breach," "Fast Rope Rappel," inverted 'Aussie Style Rappel' and something called Infiltrate & Subdue, among others.

(They best not have messed with the cover system though. If they have, I'll Infiltrate and Subdue all over their asses. Rainbow Six: Vegas' cover system was flawless.)

With regards to multiplayer Ubi have added a nice new touch in the form of the Sandtable, a holographic display that allows players to acquaint themselves with the maps, meaning you and your team can plan your route of attack.

And last up, in what seems like an evolution of the Stick-It-Under-the-Door Cam, you can now execute thermal scans of rooms before you breach, in order to plan the perfect assault.

Heavy Rain designer takes over Rainbow Six: Patriots
Ubisoft confirms dev team reshuffle

Ubisoft's confirmed it's shuffled the Rainbow Six: Patriots development team, putting Heavy Rain and Driver: San Francisco designer Jean-Sebastien Decant in the creative director seat.

Speaking to CVG, an Ubisoft spokesperson confirmed former director David Sears is no longer on the project, but didn't comment on reports claiming narrative director Richard Rouse III, lead designer Philippe Therien, and animation director Brent George have also left.

It said in a statement: "The Rainbow 6 Patriots development team is still hard at work to deliver the next instalment of the revered Tom Clancy series and more details on the game will be revealed at a later date."

Jean-Sebastien Decant previously worked as a game designer at Quantic Dream, before moving to Ubisoft Reflections and later Ubisoft Montreal, where he was most recently narrative designer.

The Heavy Rain angle would be a good fit for Patriots' difficult player choices.
