Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege – Release Date Announcement Trailer

Ubisoft just released a trailer for Rainbow Six Siege announcing the game will hit stores 13 October.

Selecting one of 20 Operators will be an important choice for all Rainbow Six Siege players. Will you focus on jamming the opposing squad’s communications? Or will you favor the ever-reliable bulletproof barricade? Will a ranged breach launcher be more useful to you than a sledgehammer? Every choice contributes to your team in different ways, and you can discover the possibilities when Rainbow Six Siege hits stores on October 13, 2015.

Catch all the latest news on this game and more at Xbox Wire.
