Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Patriots announced

After a hiatus of nearly three years, Ubisoft’s Rainbow Six series returns with Rainbow Six: Patriots. Like the previous Vegas games, the action takes place in America and will have the Rainbow Six team going up against a bunch of local terrorists called the True Patriots who’re hell bent on purging America from greedy politicians and corporate doodah.

“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 6 Patriots an extremely tense and immersive experience.”

Besides a single player campaign (that can be tackled co-operatively as well), the game will introduce a bunch of innovative multiplayer modes that weren’t detailed just yet. Understandable since the game is only expected to ship sometime in 2013. More details will be made available via the latest issues of Game Informer and the Official Xbox Magazine.
