Six Invitational 2019 - Rainbow Six Siege

Six Invitational 2019

Developed by Ubisoft Montreal and published by Ubisoft more than 3 years ago, no doubt that Rainbow Six Siege has become one of the best and most liked tactical shooter video game of all time in its class. The game was released on 1st December 2015 and since then the game is developing a huge community of players and fans worldwide. The game currently has more than 40 million active users and the number is growing day by day.

The game focuses on heavy environmental destruction & cooperation between the players. Every single player chooses an attacker or a defender from the rooster depending on the modes of gameplay, such as - rescuing a hostage, defusing a bomb, or taking control of an opposition captured point in the map. There is no campaign in the game but the game features a series of short missions which help players to learn about all the prospects and different situations which are provided by the game. These missions have a loose narrative, which basically focuses on recruits going through training to prepare them for future encounters with a terrorist group called The White Masks, that threatens the safety of the world.
