Rainbow Six: Siege Operator system and collector’s edition get detailed

2 min read

Rainbow Six Siege (1)

Operator, get me Tom Clancy on the line please.

 Sure, you’ve got the skills to pay the bills. You see a terrorist and BAM! He’s dead. You’ve earned those stripes man. You’re the top dog, the alpha male in any hostage negotiation scenario and your skills happen to be in high demand thanks to your specialised methods of introducing your enemies to the business end of a lead slug. That’s where operators come in, in the Rainbow Six: Siege grand plan.

They’re the specialists that can be called upon to help tip the odds in your favour. Or as Ubisoft described them in a press release:

Operators are specialists from the world’s top Special Forces units and masters in their respective fields. Each has their own unique expertise which adds a new tactical layer to the Siege experience and pushes team play even further. Players will put together these operators to create their best CTU (counter-terrorism unit) composition in order to defeat the opposing team.

It’s not exactly a system that‘s new. Battlefield has all manner of classes, Evolve emphasised a team made up of various disciplines and Counter Strike sealed the deal on this idea many years ago. It will however, offer a tighter gameplay experience due to the four on four nature of Rainbow Six, where you’ve got one life to make your match count. Should be interesting to see the balance dynamic between operators as the game goes through development.

Rainbow Six: Siege will also have a collector’s edition available on launch day. Here’s what it looks like, with a list of goodies below that would make Goldmember himself rather happy:

Rainbow Six: Siege Art Of Siege Edition

  • Full game
  • Collector’s Box
  • Gold Skins pack for all in-game weapons
  • 120 page tactical guide that details every Counter Terrorist Unit, Operator, weapon, and map

Reports of an even beefier collector’s edition, that includes Ubisoft providing an authentic Rainbow Six experience by having your home SWATted, have not yet been confirmed. Now keep those hands where I can see them, and check out some brand new assets in action:

  1. That’s a rubbish collectors edition. A strategy guide & silly weapon skins. Whoop-de-doo.

    The best thing apart from the main storyline about Rainbow Six games was always the terrorist hunt. This multiplayer thing isn’t appealing at all.
    Even if it has all the old game modes too, probably will only get it on special.

      I have very fond memories of terrorist hunt

        And a lot of old screenshots from a time before “F12”

      You’re right, it’s the whole “Oh shit we’ve ran out of ideas for games with storylines so why not try to get everyone to play together, you know, like counterstrike, only in our case let’s intentionally make it an online only game, because we know everyone will love the shit out of it…Oh and don’t forget the Uplay requirement so that we can prevent people from playing at all after they’d already forked out full price for the game and then some…”

    Gold weapon skins? What is this? Grove street?

    Rainbow 6 was a great game series , but I still haven’t seen what made it great for me story and co-op , all I see for now is multiplayer and I don’t need any more of those.

      I remember Lockdown had a Pretoria map.
      I think it was in Admiral’s backyard. 😉

        Indeed, we shot some tango’s there quite frequently

    That box and presentation looks almost identical to the CoD:AW one.
    initially thought you were talking about a new DLC pack.
