Rainbow Six Siege is offering players a new way to experience its tense counter-terrorist action. The newly announced Spectator Cam will allow an 11th person to participate in the 5v5 multiplayer matches by giving them the chance to witness the action through two different camera options. With the traditional First-Person View, the spectator can see through the eyes of an individual player during a match, while the Tactical View lets them switch between following individual players automatically, or zooming out over the map to see everything that’s happening. You can get your first look at the Spectator Cam in this walkthrough video.
While using the Spectator Cam, you’ll be able to check out the Player Panel, which displays information (like his or her badge, equipped weapons and gadgets) on the individual you select. Spectators can also see special outlines around each of the Operators on the map so they can keep an eye on their positions and monitor tactics.
A beta version of Spectator Cam will be available for LAN and custom online games on PC when the game launches on October 13, and the feature will be added to PS4 and Xbox One in early 2016. If you want to take part in the Rainbow Six Siege beta coming in September, you can do so by pre-ordering the game or by joining the waiting list. Also, be sure to keep an eye on the UbiBlog, as we may have opportunities for you to enter to win a beta code in the future.
