There’s a brand new Rainbow Six sport out at this time, however it’s not like any earlier entry in Ubisoft’s long-running tactical shooter franchise. As an alternative, this new entry, Rainbow Six SMOL, is a top-down, cartoony, roguelite cellular shooter unique to Netflix subscribers.

This new Rainbow Six spin-off was first revealed on February 20 through the Rainbow Six Siege Invitational occurring in São Paulo, Brazil. Whereas it does characteristic some acquainted faces from Siege, this isn’t a direct sequel of that sport, however as an alternative a brand new spin-off primarily based on the Rainbow Six franchise.

Ubisoft describes SMOL as a “top-down isometric rogulelite shooter” that contains a “tiny, humorous, whimsical” spin on the Tom Clancy Rainbow Six universe. Out now on iOS and Android, SMOL has gamers controlling a squad of R6 operators as they tackle completely different missions all over the world. Every operator has their very own weapons, bonuses, and distinctive talents. Ubisoft says gamers must construct squads from recruited operators to make the right workforce for every mission.

“We noticed a chance right here to widen the viewers a bit, with a extra approachable tackle the Rainbow Six universe,” artistic director Renaud Forestié advised The Verge.

Like Rainbow Six Siege, SMOL consists of extremely destructible environments, letting gamers method every mission in another way primarily based on their play fashion. Wanna go in heavy and loud? You are able to do that and break down all of the partitions that get in your method. Wanna be quiet and sneak round? You are able to do that too, supplied you’ve gotten the correct workforce and operators.

It is a roguelite, which is a little bit of a nebulous time period lately, however on this case, it signifies that after every profitable mission gamers can use earned XP and credit to unlock new upgrades and weapons for his or her operators. Nonetheless, if an operator dies, that’s it. They’re useless and gone eternally. Ubisoft says dropping is “not really helpful.”

One thing to bear in mind: As a result of it is a Netflix-exclusive sport there aren’t any in-game microtransactions to take care of right here (although that rule may change at some point…) So all the things in SMOL is unlocked and earned by gameplay. Which is sweet, however I’m a bit unhappy to see this locked behind a Netflix account. I’d quite simply spend $15 on it and play it on my PC or console. Hopefully, that turns into an possibility later.

Rainbow Six SMOL is out now on Android and iOS.
