New features in ‘Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Siege,’ coming to Xbox One, bring tactical intensity

Based on early footage of “Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Siege,” screened at Ubisoft’s E3 press conference, the game has new features that “should make any shooter fan stand up and take notice,” writes Xbox Wire.

After a six-year hiatus, Clancy’s tactical shooter franchise is scheduled for release in 2015.

Among the features, “Siege” players can “can dig in and fortify a position with things like barbed wire, reinforced doors, and mines,” writes Xbox Wire. “Of course, that means their opponents have the tools to breach those fortifications. This wouldn’t be a Tom Clancy game if it didn’t give players access to some amazing, almost-plausible gadgets. Just one example: As the team hunted down the captors in the demo, they deployed a flat drone under a door to scope out the position of the enemy and the hostage.”
