About

Rainbow Six Siege is an exciting, new approach to the first-person shooter experience that puts tactical combat and masterful destruction at the center of the action. Lead your team of unique, counter-terrorist Rainbow operators through tense and thrilling combat scenarios, and achieve victory through smart preparation and strategic improvisation.

Key Features:

  • The Rules of Siege – Five versus Five. Attack versus Defend. Infiltrate versus Fortify. Team-based strategy meets intense, tactical combat.
  • World’s Elite Counter – Terrorist Operators – Choose your Operator and wield their unique ability to breach or defend the objective as a part of an elite team.
  • Destruction as a Tool – Walls can be shattered; floors and ceilings can be breached. Mastering the tactical use of destruction is the key to victory.
  • Close-Quarters Combat – With tight spaces shaping all combat arenas, tense encounters and up-close-and-personal firefights abound within every Siege.
