After a two-game vacation in Vegas, Tom Clancy's elite counter-terrorism unit takes on an all-new threat threatening to destroy the U.S. government in Rainbow 6: Patriots now in development for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.
In the latest entry in the venerable series, Team Rainbow faces off against the True Patriots, a well-organized and well-funded revolutionary group aiming to overthrow a U.S. government they feel has been rendered useless by corruption. Players will have to make "tough ethical decisions" as the story progresses, signaling a brand new direction for the franchise. Perhaps that's why they've stopped using Rainbow Six in favor of the sleeker, sexier Rainbow 6. We broke the story about the game's new take on shooters back in June. In that story we go into a bit more depth about how the morality system will work and how this is a more human story that goes beyond team A shooting team B to explore the consequences of taking a life.
