"PC, PS4 and Xbox One owners can now sign up for a chance to Beta test Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Quarantine – a tactical 3-player co-op survival FPS that pits players against a mysterious threat that’s infecting human hosts.

Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Quarantine aims to do for the co-op multiplayer FPS what Rainbow Six Siege did for the competitive team based FPS. It will allow up to three players to fight against monstrous humans that have been infected by a mysterious pathogen and requires cooperation and communication for players to survive in its high risk close combat situations.

Ubisoft certainly know how to to tactical squad basted shooters and if Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Quarantine manages to capture the same quality of multiplayer experience as Siege then it could be a blast. Sign up now for a chance to fight off the infection early."

In my day Rainbow Six was about tactics and strategy. You'd spend hours planning that perfect hostage rescue before launching your calculated entry; dispassionately neutralising terrorists, avoiding booby traps and breaching rooms whilst attempting to minimise the risk to civilian and your element. That feeling of a finishing a mission flawlessly with meticulous planning, there's nothing quite like it.

Rainbow Six Siege you run around with your super hero tacticool cohorts online, smashing through walls and quickscoping newbs whilst pre-pubescent teens scream homophobic slurs and complain about "OP" or unbalance the operators are.

Rainbow Six Quarantine. You shoot not-zombies in a cynical attempt for Ubisoft to monetise a one-off, timed event from Rainbow Six Siege.

Ok, lets call them "Easily implementable AI NPC enemies"
I wish Siege would have kept it's PVE limited time event Outbreak. Was really good, but it looks like they've decided to make a full spin off game from it in Quarantine.

Those super time-limited games within Siege (and Wildlands) are great and the time limits always frustrate but yeah, if they're going to turn it into a full game.... totally OK with that

Rainbow Six has been rubbish since Raven Shield.
But even that was a bit run and fun compared to the incredible original 3rd person games
Rogue Spear on the pc was my first experience of this franchise, as time has gone on the formula that made these games unique has changed to cater for the mainstream and has lost its identity amongst the generic shooters of today which is a shame.
totally agree rockstar!

You've had a very different experience of Siege to me. I've been playing it regularly with mates since the beta years ago, and it can be very tactical, especially against a skilled squad. Lots of traps and obstacles to tackle too. I wouldn't call the operators superheroes seeing as they can all be killed with one shot to the head or a few to the body. I can't think of the last time I heard kids scream slurs while playing with randoms either.
I really enjoyed Outbreak and was hoping they'd keep it as a permanent mode, but expanding it into a fully-fleshed out game is even better for me.
But like you say different strokes.

Sounds like you're mad cus bad.

Don’t play it then.
I don’t understand why a lot of people are complaining about this. There are lots of zombie games yes, but there are very few good ones.

R6 has solid gameplay/movement/shooting mechanics, is very well optimised and has a very large developer behind it. There is definitely some potential for a really fun game here.
Terrorist Hunt or PvE sections was so masterfully crafted in the Rainbow Six games before Siege.

In Rainbow Six Siege it's so half a**ed lazy etc so poor compared to previous games in this regard. They now only put all focus and attention towards online PvP aspect, shame
Rainbow hasn't been the same since Vegas.

Multiplayer games haven't been the same since Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory and Unreal Tournament (1999).

Rant over.

Same. If someone doesn't find R6 Siege tactical they arent playing it properly

I don't understand how it's stooping. Outbreak was very well-received. I'd rather a full game than a single mode in another game.
Not heard anything about this, but is it in like the same style as say World War Z??
A) you guys know nothing about the game and act like you have played it
B) siege is one of the most tactical games out there
C) siege has been the best rainbow game and longest lasting and most successful esport

I still have all my original rainbow 6 games. I loved how if you lost a veteran you had to recruit a rookie into your team. You actually cared about keeping people alive.
Cant remember which game it was but the airplane level was so good. Could do it super quick with snipers placed around the plane
Getting Metal Gear Survive vibes

Obviously haven't played enough siege or gotten to the point of playing ranked properly. The game is just as tactical but with extra elements added in.
Thanks for the heads up. But...rant incoming
Honestly, don't see how this isn't just a cash grab.From my understanding the majority of people in didn't enjoy outbreak, only a select few played it for more than the first week. Instead of fixing the bugs and adding content they just make a standalone game of a game mode they made in about 3 to 6 months in siege. I stupidly paid for the season pass, and this quarter all we got was a reworked map and two operator with recycled guns and gadgets, with 4 new animation and a 2 character model. I understand they are a business, but jesus christ what a way to spit in the face in the face of people who support the current game. Way to bite the hand that feeds you Ubi

Your last word summed it up. Ubisoft.

They've only just started recovering from their EA like reputation lately and that's likely just down to realising there's other fish to fry (looking at you epic games).

I played siege from beta to year 2 and stopped and from that alone it was worth every penny. Since then it's went almost free to play and relying on the season pass trash of the battle royale genre and I couldn't really care because of my first point and because I've moved on.

For those complaining about tactical, there's plenty indie games that have filled that void of you insist as well as even more tactical games if you can get the people together to play them (arma 3 is a solid example of a full on military simulation that's easy to get into plus plenty of mods to cater to your needs).

(Edit: unsubscribed before this gets ranted and flamed).

So...
Still doesn't take away from the fact the siege is in a state and instead of fixing and supporting the game and it players they just want to sell a mode that is free into £30 to £50 game.

You do realise they have a separate team developing the game?

And how do you know what the game is?

Maybe the rainbow six mode was testing the water for a much bigger experience. And from what I know outbreak was hugely popular.

Yep, there was a big urge in player numbers (on Steam at least).

'It seems like the update is bringing back a lot of players. On Steam, Siege just set a new record of active players with an active peak population of over 166k, a new record for the game. Siege is also getting more popular on Twitch, where as of this writing, it is currently in the top ten most watched games despite being three years old.'

Terrorist hunt in every other game was literally just walking round the PVP Maps shooting placed AI enemies, I wouldn't say it was "masterfully crafted"

Just my opinion I guess... always feels like this series is fragmented into whatever they can get. I also enjoyed outbreak, but it felt a bit of a rip when they removed it and now they're announcing it as a 'game' in it's own right. Will be interesting to see if the beta is just the same expansion

And we are talking about a 4 year old game

The game is a huge success and I don't blame them for trying a spin off game as it's a way of making more money and if that helps support siege to continue to develop I'm all for it as siege is a fantastic game of you take time to learn it.

But why not spend the money the have spent on a separate game on siege? They can add back this mode as a season pass only mode or another way of making money while still supporting the game and the audience that enabled outbreak to be a thing. Not only would this likely lead to more sales than this new game could every dream of, it would be less anti-consumer.

Siege is an older game now I think over 4 years. Whos to say it won't have an improved engine over siege that they may want to implement?

Outbreak was a very small mode with limited content. As it was a success they are releasing a full game similar to it

This will no doubt be 50 plus gig eventually so no it wouldn't make sense to have it as dlc

Plus business wise it makes sense
