In Tom Clancy's Rainbow 6 Patriots, Team Rainbow faces a new and very real threat called the "True Patriots," a highly-trained, well-organized revolutionary group that claim the American government is irrevocably corrupted by greedy politicians and corporate special interests. The True Patriots will do whatever it takes to reclaim their country. Playing as Rainbow, players will face critical scenarios that will require them to make tough ethical decisions in order to stop this new breed of terrorists.

Get used to the idea that patriotism is terrorism.

Thought the same thing. I hope that game flops badly.

Great book and good video game series too

I wonder how much Clancy was involved in this before he died??
Link Posted: 12/13/2013 12:06:56 PM EDT
I haven't played any of the installments since the first Vegas. (Or any video games, really. Have a toddler now so no time.) That was a lot of fun. But this is crap. I too, hope it fails.

Half of GD is going to expect compensation or mention in the credits for using their likeness in the game.

Does it have an option to play the 'patriots'?  If so, I might be interested in trying it.

If the NSA is monitoring WOW for terrorists, I bet dollars to doughnuts they will monitor this title closely.


Eta, if you can't side with the "patriots" I predict several mods will fix that, on the PC version.
Link Posted: 12/13/2013 1:21:02 PM EDT
And in the first game (As in the book) you fight a bunch of Eco-Terrorists who plan on releasing a super-virus that will bring the world population down to "sustainable levels"... the eco-terrorists themselves, of course, having the vaccine.



I think Tom Clancy just plain hated Terrorists of all colors, ideological bents, etc.



I think that's the difference between Right wingers and Leftists. Leftists will *ALWAYS* portray the bad guys as being "right wing" leaning... as they can never conceive of a situation where Leftists do anything bad. Right wingers, however, openly admit and even embrace the idea that sometimes our "fellow travelers" go down the wrong path and need to be dealt with.



OR this might just be a case where the producers/writers of the game have little exposure to Tom Clancy's philosophy. I have to admit, the "terrorists" in this game do seem much more sympathizeable than previous installments.




I liked Deus Ex, because you start off fighting a Right winged, Secessionist movement that wants to seceed the USA from the UN while working for UNATCO (United Nations Anti-Terrorist Coalition). Only a little bit later do you find out how deeply corrupt and evil the UN, the Feds, etc are... and you end up joining the opposition. All of the morally "Questionable" actions of the NSF (National Secessionist Forces), end up being explained away later on by desperation, and a lack of resources and ability to "reign in" the less professional operatives.... but overall their cause ends up being exonerated.

Yeah, we did all this about a year ago.

Release date at the link says Dec 2014, so at this rate it may never come out.

Right after the original three Rainbow Six games and the first Ghost Recon the entire Tom Clancy name has been synonymous with generic crappy assed action games. I wouldn't worry too much about it.

If you got to play as the patriots instead, I'd give it a shot.

no shit, in RB6 ravenshield you couldn't even jump and the run was a fast paced walk..  Best game for Lan parties because once you died you had to watch and wait to the end of the match..

It was made by Candians.  What would you expect?  Ubi has studios in Montreal, Paris, San Francisco, Morocco, Shanghai, etc.  Not exactly a hotbed of
"keepin' it real, no matter who it offends."

Statistically, if it's going to be terrorists---it's going to be Muslim ones.   However---that can't be done, because it's offensive to Muslims (no matter how true it is).
Who gives a shit if you offend a bunch of white guys in the US, of all places.  Fuck that shit, man.  So much for keeping it real.

R6 RavenShield was the best version of the game to date as far as playability and maps.  Period.

in the original build, you play both the Patriots---and it switches back to the R6 Team.

R6 and Ghost Recon have never been about "action"---they are 1st and 3rd Person tactical shooters.  Not to be confused with the stupid shit of blasting the shit out of everything with waves and waves of endless enemies.

Link Posted: 12/13/2013 8:09:07 PM EDT
The bad guys in the book and the first game are a caricature of the environmentalist nuts, like something from an episode of Law and Order circa 1997.

On the first one, you were better off controlling whichever team had to do most of the shooting, and toward the end, you were better off controlling everybody because the AI had a tendency to cheat, and never in your favor.  It wound up being not much different from other first person shooter games of the day.
