Rainbox Six Siege Has No Single-Player Story Mode
Ubisoft's Rainbow Six Siege is joining the growing list of first-person shooters that have forgone solo story campaigns to focus on multiplayer.
What Culture reports that Ubisoft revealed Rainbow Six Siege isn't going to have a single-player campaign mode. Given the game's focus on balanced, multiplayer gameplay, Ubisoft has decided to not include a traditional story mode. Rainbow Six Siege art director Scott Mitchell also confirmed that the game won't be offering much in terms of offline gameplay as well.
“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," Mitchell said. "You can customize matches, so that’s what we’re offering on the single-player side of things”
We should note that 2006's Rainbow Six: Vegas had a dedicated single-player story mode, as did Vegas 2 a few years later, which had segments taking place both before and after the first title.
“It’s a pretty good training ground, and on top or that you’re unlocking the same content as you would playing in PvP. You’re still gaining stars, renown points, and new operatives,” Mitchell added.
Star Wars Battlefront, Evolve and Titanfall are some other first-person shooters that have openly renounced single-player story modes in favor of multiplayer gameplay. Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 also won't be having a campaign mode on its PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions due to technical constraints.
Rainbow Six Siege will hit PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on Dec. 1.
