Ubisoft has revealed that Rainbow Six Siege will have no form of campaign “per se”, instead players will experience several training missions for each of the game’s Operators.
Over the past year or so many games have been swaying towards the multiplayer-only genre with many games being purely multiplayer-only affair. Even this year’s Call of Duty, at least on last-gen consoles anyway, will be a multiplayer only title, so to hear that Rainbow Six Siege will have no real campaign, comes as no real surprise.
In an EGX 2015 panel, Scott Mitchell, the game’s art director revealed the unsurprising news stating that there’s not exactly a story mode, instead players can enter a training mode “where you get to experience different operators and their devices.”
“You can play against enemy AI in co-op through all the maps. You can customise matches, so that’s what we’re offering on the single-player side of things,” he added.
Simply put, it’s more of a training mode for players to get accustomed to each of the game’s Operators.
“It’s a pretty good training ground, and on top or that you’re unlocking the same content as you would playing in PvP. You’re still gaining stars, renown points, and new operatives.”
In addition to this news Ubisoft has announced that the beta that’s currently running on Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4, will run an additional three days until October 1. The reason for this is due to problems with the game’s technical test, with some players unable to connect to matches.
“The good news is that for those who have received their access, the experience has been trending positively,” said the development team. “We’ve been getting good feedback on the content of the beta, and matchmaking and server stability have already been improved.
“There are still a few issues to work out, of course, and we will continue to do that over the course of the beta. Given the current situation, we’ve made the decision to extend the Closed Beta by 3 days. It will run through Thursday, October 1st.”
Ubisoft has also announced that they’re distributing more codes now pre-order customers have all received their codes.
