The Siege Games Are Coming!
If you've ever wanted the opportunity to play against the best of the best, now is your chance. Today, Ubisoft announced The Siege Games, a competitive tour at four major gaming events around the United States to celebrate Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege.
Inspired by real-world counter-terrorist organizations, Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege puts players in the middle of lethal close-quarter confrontations. Players will engage in sieges, a new style of assault where enemies have the means to transform their environments into modern strongholds while Rainbow Six teams lead the assault to breach the enemyâ€™s position. This game gives players unprecedented control over their ability to fortify their position by reinforcing walls and floors, using barbed wire and deployable shields, laying mines and more! Players can also breach the enemies' position using observation drones, setting charges, and rappelling. The fast pace and uniqueness of each siege sets a new bar for intense firefights, strategic gameplay and competitive gaming.
At each event, fans will battle it out for the highest score in hopes of winning a trip to Los Angeles to showcase their skills during the star-studded Siege Day launch event which will be live streamed to the world! Players can enter these events alone, or with friends, and play as many times as they like. The Siege Games will take place at the following events:
-San Diego Comic-Con: July 9-12 (Hilton San Diego Gaslamp Quarter, Santa Rosa Room)
-RTX Austin: August 7-9
-PAX Prime in Seattle: August 28-31
-GameStop EXPO 2015 in Las Vegas: September 2
But don't worry if you can't make it to one of these events because Ubisoft still has a way for you to participate! Players can compete for a chance to win the trip to Siege Day by registering for the closed beta wait-list at thesiegegames.ubi.com and playing for a high score. Ubisoft has also teamed up with Extra Life, a Children's Miracle Network Hospitals fundraising program, to give players a surefire way to participate in closed beta. Anyone who donates $6 or more to Extra Life by mid-July will receive a code guaranteeing access to Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege Closed Beta in September.
