Rainbow Six Lockdown – The Multiplayer
Experience – Taking the Best and Making it Better
The Rainbow Six franchise is widely known as
one of the best multiplayer games available to-date and Rainbow Six Lockdown is
no exception to that reputation. Taking the best and making it better, the game
has taken the best features and game elements from previous Rainbow Six games
and combined them into one spectacular multiplayer experience. Rainbow Six
Lockdown will include new features original to the Rainbow Six franchise such as
allowing players to not only play as a Team Rainbow member, but giving them the
option to play as a mercenary in all adversarial modes. Another innovative
addition to the multiplayer experience is the use of dynamic maps. Players will
have the ability to affect the map in real time by use of machinery (like
cranes) or automated doors. This will allow them to open up or close paths and
access routes to different locations on the map.
