Ubisoft Announces Open Beta And Reveals New Idris Elba TV Spot

about X hours ago from

Ubisoft has announced an open beta for Rainbow Six Siege in the days leading up to its release. Players with a PlayStation 4, Xbox One, or PC who want to try out the tactical shooter will be able to do so during the open beta that runs from November 25 to 29.

In addition, Ubisoft has revealed a new television spot for Rainbow Six Siege starring Idris Elba. The action in the trailer depicts the kind of strategies players can expect to utilize during a match in Rainbow Six Siege with all the spectacle of a Hollywood action film.

The value that live-action video game trailers bring to potential consumers is questionable, but the attention they attract from a mainstream audience cannot be denied – particularly when they star a huge actor like Idris Elba. Ubisoft says this trailer will be running during peak viewing hours such as during football games on Thanksgiving and the mid-season finale of The Walking Dead, so you can probably expect to see it on your TV sometime soon. If you'd like to check out the TV spot before those events, you can do that below. Rainbow Six Siege hits PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on December 1.

Meet Rextro-Sixtyfourus, Dino Keeper Of The Old Games

Meet Rextro-Sixtyfourus, Dino Keeper Of The Old Games

Today Playtonic Games, a studio comprised of many former Rare developers, announced via IGN the latest character in the Yooka-Laylee roster. The successful Kickstarter harks back to the Nintendo 64 3D platformers of old, so it's only fitting that it features a character that looks like he's ripped right out of the late '90s console era. Meet Rextro-Sixtyfourus, your polygonal dinosaur pal.

Most of you probably already figured out Rex's clever name, but let's unpack it to be certain. The "Rextro" is clearly going for "retro," to cement the fact that this scanlined thunder lizard is old school. The "Sixtyfourus" portion of this name is a clear reference to the Nintendo 64, the console on which Rare won the hearts of many. Rextro's aesthetic aims to evoke the era that Yooka-Laylee is pulling from, complete with a blocky, polygonal shape and a scanline-riddled texture reminiscent of older CRT televisions.

This dinosaur, a proper relic of the past, also guards a collection of arcade machines scattered throughout Yooka-Laylee's world. Players can tackle the challenges these retro games present to earn another collectible to progress through the game.
