You’d think a video game series based around novels would have a pretty compelling story, and prior titles in the Rainbow Six Saga did not disappoint. It’s fairly common for similar games to feature a single-player story campaign to go with a decked-out multiplayer mode, but the newest entry in the Rainbow Six games, Rainbow Six Siege, will have no such thing.
At EGX 2015, in an interview with WhatCulture, Rainbow Six Siege’s Art Director Scott Mitchell stated that:
"There is no story mode per se. You go through training, 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 customize matches, so that’s what we’re offering on the single-player side of things."
So, all the gameplay of single-player mode, but nothing tying it together. While it certainly won’t make or break the game (given the wide variety of multiplayer options), Mitchell referred to the single-player mode as more of a “training ground” for multiplayer than anything else, making it less likely that people will visit that mode of gameplay. For anyone whose heart wasn’t set on online content, though, this might put them off considerable.
Rainbow Six Siege will be released for PC, PS4, and Xbox One on December 1, 2015.
