I had a chance to capture some of the new single player Situations mode that is going to be a part of Rainbow Six Siege. Here, I played as IQ who has a wrist-mounted device that can track electronic signals. Rainbow Six Siege will be available on December 1 for Xbox One, PS4, and PC.

I had a chance to get my hands on a pair of new modes that have just been announced will be part of Rainbow Six Siege’s lineup.

The first mode is a single-player training mode code Situations. This mode allows players basically to play Terrohunt by themselves against a varying number of enemies. There are a multitude of game scenarios to cover, though, and so each one makes you play as a different operator. This means before you jump online you can have had some practice with the game’s 20 operators to find out who best fits your play style, as well as learn the game’s maps. Check out my time as Glaz and Kapkan in the video below.

For those who are looking forward to the possible eSports imprint Siege will have, the second new mode announced, Spectator, is perfect for up and coming shoutcasters. Spectator mode allows you to get an overview of an entire map to see where all 10 players are at once. You can also zoom in and switch between floors, or jump into the first-person perspective of any player on the fly to see the action. Check out the video below for the demo we were given of Spectator mode.

And finally, because it wouldn’t be a proper Rainbow Six Siege preview without showing off a bit more of the online modes, here are a couple of rounds of the 5v5 PvP that we snuck in between Situations.

Rainbow Six Siege will be available on Xbox One, PS4, and PC on December 1.

I had a chance to capture a couple extra matches of Rainbow Six Siege‘s classic humans versus AI Terrohunt game mode recently. Here they are in all their glory.

Rainbow Six Siege will be available on December 1 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

Ubisoft Toronto is working on five unannounced projects, two of which are being co-developed with other studios, managing director Jade Raymond revealed to Toronto’s The Star at SXSW yesterday.

While her talk was devoid of details for these projects, Raymond did provide a peek at Ubisoft’s mindset, talking about more blockbuster, AAA-franchises with comic book and movie tie-ins coming down the line. Even though the idea of potential “transmedia” IP is at the forefront of many minds at Ubisoft, Raymond reiterated that the company’s focus remains on games first.

“Our business is making games, so we have to make sure we’re making good games, first and foremost,” Raymond said. “I don’t think we can think out the gate, ‘How is this going to be a good movie?’ I don’t know anything about movies. I’ve never made a movie in my life.”

Raymond also mentioned that diversifying Ubisoft’s library beyond console/PC titles and having exclusive mobile franchises is a priority for her as well. According to her, games with a strong social element will only continue to grow in popularity over the coming years.

Jade Raymond is probably best known in game development for her role as producer on the original Assassin’s Creed before helping found Ubisoft Toronto in 2009. So far, the studio has only worked with their older sister Ubisoft Montreal on last year’s Splinter Cell: Blacklist. They are currently, supposedly, helping out with the constantly-in-limbo Rainbow Six: Patriots.
