Ubisoft have announced a new Rainbow Six title coming next year for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC called Rainbow Six Quarantine. By all accounts it looks directly inspired by the limited time co-op event from Rainbow Six Siege called Outbreak.
Games with Gold comes around once a month like a co-op colossus giving Gold members of Xbox Live up to four 'free' games. There have been a wonderfully disproportionate number of co-op titles to be had. This month is a little light, with only one of the four games being co-op, but when that game is the stone cold classic Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas 2, who cares?
Late May is chalked full of upcoming co-op releases, and we've found the deals to go with them. If you're either a Warhammer or a Total War fan, you have to be looking forward to next week Tuesday's Total War: Warhammer. There are a variety of TW: Warhammer deals this week ranging from 20% off to 25% off. All of them will include the pre-order bonus of the Chaos Warrior Race Pack.
The Rainbow Six line of games has been a long established franchise spanning many years and a multitude of platforms. Originally announced in 2011, Rainbow Six: Patriots was supposed to be a current-gen game that would be released on Xbox 360, PC, and Playstation 3. Ubisoft recently revealed that they would be pushing back the game to next-gen. Tony Key, a Ubisoft marketing director, stated that that "Rainbow 6 got caught in the transition of going to next-gen and essentially we're figuring out 'well, are we making the right game for the right hardware systems?'"
Amazon is having a huge PC download sale today to celebrate Valentine's Day and what better way to do that than to offer plenty of awesome co-op titles for super cheap! Highlights of the deals include Borderlands: GOTY edition for $6.99, Dungeon Defenders for $2.99 and the Magicka Collection for $4.99.
Confirming info from earlier this week - Ubisoft has officially announced the first details of the next Rainbow Six game. Oddly, it's not called Rainbow Six, but rather Rainbow 6, replacing the word six with the number*. All previous iterations of the franchise and novels used the full word. As we previously reported, the name is Tom Clancy's Rainbow 6: Patriots and yes...it has co-op.
I love me some T-Hunt. This is the Rainbow Six game mode that allows 4 players to co-op together and take on a map of AI enemies. The next game in the series has already been announced, but currently remains nameless. This is about to change as recent domain names suggest Rainbow Six: Patriots will be its moniker.
Playing games for work purposes can be a different experience than playing them for fun. This week I recount an experience I had when helping out a professional FAQ writer.
If you're a PlayStation 3 owner, a PlayStation Plus member, and if you never quite caught on to one of the most fun tactical first-person shooters available this generation...then you need to hit the craps tables right now, because Lady Luck is smiling!
My all-time personal favorite co-op game remains Rainbow Six: Vegas 2. If you're like me, you've been waiting for a "Six fix" for a while now. Luckily Gameloft has just the prescription to keep you distracted until Ubi comes through, and it's in the form of a portable first-person shooter fast-roping onto the iPhone App Store on March 17th.
