    Ubisoft brings together the finest elements found throughout the history of the Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six® series to create the most complete chapter to date, Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Critical Hour™.

    This latest chapter marks the return to the franchise’s roots by reintroducing the deeply strategic and tactical gameplay synonymous with the Rainbow Six name while incorporating classic in-game elements (vintage maps, weapons, etc) rebuilt using today’s technology.

    • End of an era: Critical Hour’s story line focuses on nostalgia as John Clark retires and passes the torch to his son-in-law Ding Chavez.
    • Return of classic missions: Chosen by fans, seven single-player missions from the classic Rainbow Six andRogue Speargames return, revamped using today’s technology.
    • Refocused tactical gameplay: Through slower pacing and an enhanced combat model, strategic planning is the central element of gameplay.
    • Advanced combat model: Choose your steps wisely as your actions can prove to be the difference between life and death. Weapon accuracy is affected by in-game maneuvers and events such as running, crouching, standing still, or firing while injured.
    • Artificial intelligence: Match your wits against intelligent enemies thanks to an incredible A.I. system, making for startlingly realistic gameplay.
    • Superior multiplayer experience:Critical Hour comes equipped with a superior multiplayer experience, including the revolutionary P.E.C. and Rivalry modes made famous by Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Lockdown™, as well as the new and innovative Assassin and Free for All modes.
    • Single-player action: Close-quarter, non-linear level design challenges even the most tactical of gamers, increasing the importance of the infamous one-shot kill.
    • Weapons and equipment: Enter the battle with today’s most advanced weaponry (more than 20 weapons in all) and hi-tech equipment.
    • Global missions: From Idaho to Venice, Mexico City to Siberia, Team Rainbow travels the world to serve and protect the innocent from terrorist threats.
