Counter-terrorism, teamwork and strategy, online shooting, siege gameplay, procedural destruction, and more – these are the ingredients that the developers from Ubisoft Montreal, Sperasoft Studio, and LLC put together for creating Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege. The game was released in 2015 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
Rainbow Six Siege focuses on close-quarters combat, tactical decision making, team play, and more. But the game will become even more tempting as it’s awaited for more platforms.
PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X availability
As you’ve probably guessed already, both the upcoming next-generation consoles that will hit the stores in November, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, will be able to run Rainbow Six Siege. The announcement comes from the UbiForward event held recently.
If you’re willing to be playing Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege on a PC, you’ll need a minimum of 6GB of RAM, an Intel Core i3 560 @ 3.3 GHz or AMD Phenom II X4 945 @ 3.0 GHz, 61 GB of available space on the hard disk, and a graphics card like NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 or AMD Radeon HD 5870.
Interestingly enough, the game still works on the good old Windows 7, and it’s even presented on Steam to accept the operating system even at recommended system requirements. You’ll need a better video card if you want to run the game at maximum graphical settings and with no issues: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670 (or GTX 760 / GTX 960) or AMD Radeon HD 7970 (or R9 280x [2GB VRAM] / R9 380 / Fury X).
Both PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X will impress through 8K video quality, purging of the in-game loading times, and more. The price for the new Xbox is set at $499, while Sony still has to reveal the starting price of its upcoming console. However, analysts have placed the price of PS5 in the region of $499 / £449 / AU$749.
