Rainbow Six Siege is a team based FPS with a focus on multiplayer gameplay. The single player campaign has always been a large part of the series appeal, that has unfortunately been removed and instead has some training missions with an opening and ending cutscene that doesn't really make any sense with the game's multiplayer, these levels all take place on the maps used for the multiplayer and co-op modes. While there is no single player the game did keep its co-op terrorist hunt mode where you fight against the AI, for some reason you are unable to choose what map and game mode you want to use though. The terrorist hunt mode does give you a little more variety with bomb defusal, hostage rescue, and defense objectives in addition to the usual kill all the enemies mode, the hostage defense mission also gives a bit more variety by allowing you to choose what are you want to use on the map to defend at with a choice of four locations on each map. While you can't choose which map or mode to play with, you can choose to retry failed or won maps, which is nice on defense missions where you might want to try to hold each of the four rooms. The game is very reliant on you having a good team that can work together. At the start of and during matches you can use drones to locate enemies or your objectives, walls and doors need to be breached, barricades and defenses need to be set up, and characters have unique weapons and abilities. The game currently has 24 different character each with their own loadout, special ability, and different armor and speed ratings with at least four more characters being added to the game in the coming months. The characters are split up with 12 being available for attacking teams and 12 for defense teams. Characters might be able to set up mines and shock traps to slow or kill enemies, break down walls with a sledgehammer, disable or detect electronic devices, make use of different kinds of shields, etc. Each character might have between one and four primary weapons to choose from, one or two side arms, and a choice of two different gadgets that can differ between characters. Weapons can have different scopes and barrels added to them as well as a front grip (which there is no reason not to get) and a laser sight which will increase hip fire accuracy but might give away your position. Characters and attachments for each weapon need to be purchased with renown that you will earn from playing the game, it really doesn't take long to unlock things, it is actually done so quickly that there barely seems to be a reason to not just have everything unlocked. The guns are satisfying to use, the game looks really good, the maps are well designed and have a lot of destructibility, new maps are given to everyone, and characters can fill a lot of different roles. For possible negatives the game should require good teamwork so if you don't know people playing or don't like talking to people it might not be a game for you. A single player mode is missed. The game's damage model might not be liked by everyone, headshots tend to be very important with one hit even by the weakest gun in the game to even the most heavily armored ballistic helmet wearing character is a one shot kill, even if the bullet had to go through cover. Some people might like this as it does lead to people needing to rely on flanking, misdirection, teamwork, and making use of devices that locate enemies. Bad things about this is that it tends to make high rate of fire and low recoil the only thing to care about and slow shooting, low capacity, high damage guns aren't going to matter as much for skilled players. It also means that people will do what would normally be considered a strange thing, like trying to turn their MAC-11s into mini sniper rifles. The season pass is somewhat odd for this game as there is no single player content, new maps are free for everyone, and the new characters can be bought with in game renown. What the season pass will get you is a 5% increase in renown at the end of each game, new character will be unlocked for you for free, you get 600 of the game's other form of currency that costs real money, cosmetic skins for a few guns, and you can do additional challenges to earn more in game currency. The new characters cost a lot of in game currency, 25,000 each as opposed to the 500, 1000, 1500, and 2000 of the other characters so this will certainly save you time if you don't play the game that often or if you are just getting it now. The other form of currency included with this can be used to unlock skins that would normally need money or to buy boosters that will increase the amount of experience you gain for a limited amount of time. The season pass is nice to have but everything important it gives you can be unlocked through time and it doesn't give you enough of the other form of currency to buy much, with the price of the season pass at launch the cosmetic should have been included with it.
