The next installment of Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Franchise will feature terrorists who strike New York City in "retaliation for the greed of Wall Street and the government that acts to protect them."
It appears to have strong anti-capitalist, class warfare themes. Some bloggers are already saying this is Tom Clancy's way of taking on Occupy Wall Street from a conservative point of view, but according to website Gameinformer.com, it's actually more about right-wing extremists.
An ominous voice-over introduces the first official trailer of this homegrown terrorism game by saying:
"This is the day we've been waiting for. This is for the jobs you've streamlined, the debts you've collected, this is for the homes you foreclosed on, the bailouts you took. We are the true patriots. It's time for a new balance of power. You may not answer to the government, but you will answer to us."
In the released footage from the game, the story kicks off when a man with an attractive wife in a comfortable home is kidnapped by a gang of ruthless class warfare thugs who threaten to slit the throats of his wife and child if he doesn't detonate a suicide vest in Times Square.
From there, a series of first-person shooter scenarios kick-in, and civilians are often targets. It gets brutal fast, and from the looks of things, is going to be the most controversial Rainbow Six entry in the series by far.
