Video: Ian gets tactical with Rainbow Six Siege's alpha

Sextuple rainbow.

Rainbow Six Siege's closed alpha just went live earlier today and our Ian Higton has been toying around with Ubisoft's more dynamic, small-scale reinvention of the franchise. Over the span of 14 and a half glorious minutes, Ian comes to grips with the ins and outs of breaching, fortifying and repelling. That last one takes Ian a bit to get the hang of.

While not nearly as pretty as the E3 build, Ian seems to have a good time with Rainbow Six Siege's PC alpha. His takeaway: Nobody cares about the hostage. Everyone just wants to kill each other. Sorry, hostage.

Watch Ian's exploits below as he gives his initial impressions.
