Further gameplay details for Tom Clancy's The Division have recently been revealed. The release date for the upcoming Ubisoft title has been confirmed for March 8, 2016. Meanwhile, a second Tom Clancy title, Rainbow Six: Siege, is destined to hit stores on December 1st, 2015.
Enemies Ridiculously Hard to Kill
In a recent article, Movie Pilot reported that players will have more difficult time killing opponents. It turns out that everyone will take insane amounts of damage before going down. The publication emphasized that up-close shotgun blasts will not result in an instant kill. While some players may welcome this feature, others may find this frustrating to no end.
Even so, not everything is bad news. The Division apparently retains the proven Gears of War cover system, where players hunker down by pressing and holding the A button.
Health regeneration is split into three parts. After taking damage, the player will only automatically heal up within one section. To get back full health, he or she needs to rely on teammates. Health packs are available for those stuck without partners.
Regarding movement, sprinting is infinite. Grenades are tossed in an arc. The two types of grenades include demolition and health. Sneaking is no longer possible because other players can detect your pulse using technology. Everyone has a heads-up display that allows them to see enemies through walls via red squares.
Players who go rogue have a red bar appearing over their heads, which makes them an easy target for retribution. So, falling over to the dark side now bears significant consequences.
Rainbow Six Siege Will Launch with New 11 Maps
Recently, Ubisoft reported to PC Gamer that Rainbow Six: Siege will launch with a total of eleven new maps that are "playable both day or night, all using the full potential of our Real Blast destruction technology." Additionally, the company revealed that all post-launched maps are free to download.
"We want players to stay with us for the long term and have ambitious post-launch plans that we will detail at a later stage," Ubisoft's statement to the publication explained.
The beta for Rainbow Six: Siege will be available on September 24 for the public to try. Afterwards, the final release version will ship out in time for the winter holidays on December 1st, 2015.
