Idris Elba Rainbow Six Siege live-action trailer

Posted on

Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege players could only hope to remain as calm and collected as Idris Elba is in the midst of battle.

The Luther star appears in the newest live-action trailer for the upcoming shooter, which pits teams of attackers and defenders against each other on maps designed to encourge creativity and destructibility in the chaos of a siege. While the new trailer doesn’t have much in the way of gameplay, players will soon have a chance to try out the game during its open beta on Nov. 25-29 before the ful game releases on Dec. 1 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC.

Siege is the first game in the Rainbow Six series to release since 2008’s Rainbow Six: Vegas 2, and will also include the availability of a $30 season pass. The season pass will include early and immediate (rather than purchasing) new operator characters in addition to the new maps that will be available for free to all players.

Watch the new Idris Elba-filled trailer above.
