Homegrown Terrorists Fight To Take Back America In Rainbow 6: Patriots

After a two-game vacation in Vegas, Tom Clancy's elite counter-terrorism unit takes on an all-new threat threatening to destroy the U.S. government in Rainbow 6: Patriots now in development for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.

In the latest entry in the venerable series, Team Rainbow faces off against the True Patriots, a well-organized and well-funded revolutionary group aiming to overthrow a U.S. government they feel has been rendered useless by corruption. Players will have to make "tough ethical decisions" as the story progresses, signaling a brand new direction for the franchise. Perhaps that's why they've stopped using Rainbow Six in favour of the sleeker, sexier Rainbow 6.

"Terrorism has evolved, and so has Rainbow 6. In Tom Clancy's Rainbow 6 Patriots, all the team play, tactics, and realism that fans of the series love have been coupled with an exciting new narrative direction," said David Sears, creative director at Ubisoft. "This adds an unprecedented level of humanity that will make Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Patriots an extremely tense and immersive experience."

So we're in for a deeper, more compelling single-player experience than the series has ever seen, plus some new multiplayer and co-op features that will reward teamwork and cooperation, two elements that have always been close to the heart of the series.

Rainbow 6: Patriots kicks down doors in 2013. Expect to be choked with assets and information between now and then.

    So this is like the 10th time someone has tried to overthrow the US Government in the Tom Clancy Game Universe? Need an original idea anyone?

      Hey, it's a classic plot. It's not like every game has someone trying to overthrow the US.

    "Team Rainbow faces off against the True Patriots, a well-organized and well-funded revolutionary group aiming to overthrow a U.S. government they feel has been rendered useless by corruption"

    So ... The Tea Party?

      Honestly, "a U.S. government they feel has been rendered useless by corruption"... that's an opinion anybody with the ability to pay attention should come to pretty quickly. So unless there's more to the group described in the game, it'd be hard to pin it down as one specific reflection of any real-world group/organization.

      Well except PETA. If it were them they'd just be killing people and wouldn't bother addressing corruption. ;-P

    Can't we be on the side of the Patriots? :c

    Why are Tom Clancy games always a vision of the future?
