    Action-packed Rainbow Six Siege cinematic represents evolution of the franchise

    Who is the best of the best? Right before the Grand Finals of last week's Rainbow Six Siege Six Invitational tournament, Ubisoft Montreal debuted a CGI mini-movie to culminate both Year 4 and the end of the recent in-game event "Road To S.I." The exciting clip not only adds a little more to the ongoing Siege lore but also seems to shift both the tone and focus of the online shooter in a whole new direction. During the six-minute Tournament of Champions cinematic, two teams taken from Siege's 50+ roster compete in a typical five-on-five face-off. The Attackers are comprised of Sledge, Thatcher, Hibana, Blitz, and Dokkabei, while the Defending team features Mira, Pulse, Doc, Mozzie, and everyone's favourite sociopath, Caveira. Throughout this intense, hard-hitting showdown, the operators are working together -- yet against each other -- to essentially "win" a sporting event, held before a screaming crowd of thousands in an abandoned Roman arena. A literal site of gladiatorial competition.
