Tom Clancy’s Rainbow 6 Patriots trailer to debut at this year’s VGAs

Today, Ubisoft announced it will debut the first official trailer for Tom Clancy’s Rainbow 6 Patriots during Spike TV’s 2011 “Video Game Awards” which telecast LIVE on Saturday December 10 at 8:00 PM ET / 5:00 PM PT on Spike TV, MTV2 and Spike.com.

Setting the stage for the newest edition in the popular franchise, the trailer exemplifies the terrorist threat that not only poses a danger to Team Rainbow, but also to the nation. Tom Clancy’s Rainbow 6 Patriots is due for release on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Windows PC in 2013.

Terrorism has evolved and America is under attack. Capitalizing on the sense of frustration in a nation seemingly corrupted by greedy politicians and corporate special interests, a group of US citizens-turned-radicals, the “True Patriots,” will stop at nothing to overthrow the government and financial institutions. As a leader of the elite Rainbow counter-terrorism unit, players will be the last line of defense tasked with saving the nation no matter the cost.

Tom Clancy’s Rainbow 6 Patriots revolves around an unprecedented narrative that captures the reality of modern-day terrorism and allows players to experience it from multiple perspectives. In addition to the immersive single-player storyline, the game will introduce a huge variety of new innovative co-op and multiplayer experiences that add a new dimension to squad tactics. Players will be rewarded for working as a team and mastering the game’s new features that enhance communication and strategic execution between teammates.
