About Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege
Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege puts players in lethal close-quarter confrontations called sieges, a new style of assault where enemies have the means to transform their environments into strongholds while Rainbow Six teams lead the assault to breach the enemy’s position. Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege gives players unprecedented control over their ability to fortify their position by reinforcing walls and floors, using barbed wire, deployable shields, laying mines and more, or breach the enemies’ using observation drones, setting charges, rappelling and more. The fast pace and uniqueness of each siege sets a new bar for intense firefights, strategic gameplay and competitive gaming.
