Ubisoft unveiled a scene from its upcoming Tom Clancy’s Rainbow 6 Patriots show today during the Spike TV Video Game Awards show.
The new game sets the stage for the latest edition in the popular franchise. The trailer shows a terrorist group taking over the country, first by capturing the President of the United States.
The game is expected to hit the Xbox 360, the PlayStation 3, and the Windows PC in 2013.
In this game, the U.S. is under attack by a group of citizens-turned-radicals dubbed the True Patriots. They will overthrow the government that is dominated by greedy politicians and corporate special interests. The player has to fight off the terrorists by leading an elite Rainbow counter-terrorism team. Yeah, I know. It’s like another reality game.
Ubisoft promises new cooperative and multiplayer play in addition to a single-player campaign that focuses on squad tactics.
