Ubisoft has confirmed that the upcoming tactical shooter, Rainbow Six: Siege, will not include a standard story mode. Ubisoft Montreal had been silent on the possibility of a single-player campaign mode since the game was announced at E3 2014 as their big show-stopper.
Now that doesn’t mean that there isn’t a single-player mode to Siege, as Scott Mitchell, the game’s art director, said that players will have a training session “where you get to experience different operators and their devices,” and that players may face off against enemy AI fighters “in co-op through all the maps… You can customize matches, so that’s what we’re offering on the single-player side of things.”
“It’s a pretty good training ground,” Mitchell added of the game’s singleplayer offerings, “and on top of that you’re unlocking the same content as you would playing in PvP.”
Siege joins a growing list of AAA (full priced) multiplayer-only titles, which so far includes the likes of Evolved, Titanfall, and the upcoming Star Wars: Battlefront and Call of Duty Black Ops 3 on older consoles.
