E3 Cloud Gaming News So Far...
Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege - The popular, tense, tactical shooter is set to launch on Stadia, June 30. In conjunction with the Stadia launch the game will also support cross-play and cross-progression between PC, Stadia and Luna.
As the game is available on GeForce NOW through Ubisoft Connect, Epic and Steam this means no matter which platform or service you choose, you'll be able to hook up with your squad.
Ubisoft have also detailed plans to have cross progression across all platforms in early 2022.
Great news for Rainbow 6 gamers. No matter which service or platform you choose, you'll be able to transfer you progress and play with all your friends and team mates.
The next season of Rainbow Six Siege is set to launch June 14. Thunderbird is the newest operator to be introduced.
Thunderbird can deploy static gadgets called Kóna Stations. Any player (ally or enemy) standing next to them can consume their charge to heal themselves. The charge comes back to the device with a cooldown. It can overheal the targeted player up to 130 HP and even revive a player down but not out. Thunderbird hails from the Nakoda First Nation of the northern prairies of North America.
Rainbow Six Extraction - Formerly known as Rainbow Six Quarantine, made it's debut at yesterdays Ubisoft Forward and is set to release, September 16. This is the newest mainline game from the Rainbow Six franchise and offers exciting new features while building on the original tactical gameplay the franchise is famed for.
Rainbow Six Extraction is coming to Stadia and is already available for pre-order in the store. The Deluxe Edition is priced at £75.99 and includes, REACT Strike Pack, Orbital Decay Bundle, Obscura Pack and Noxious Touch Pack. The Standard Edition is priced at £59.99 and if you pre-order you will be granted the Orbital Decay Bundle.
It will be available on the Ubisoft Store on Windows PC and will be included in your Ubisoft + subscription. The Deluxe Edition will be included in your Ubisoft + subscription.
With all this being the case I imagine it will be part of the Ubisoft+ channel on Luna and hopefully we see an announcement for GFN real soon.
Riders Republic - A massive multiplayer open-world playground awaits us on September 2nd. Join 64 player lobbies across a range of outdoor sports from biking, snowboarding, skiing, wingsuits flying and much more.
The Ultimate Edition will be part of your Ubisoft + subscription and will be playable through Luna and Stadia.
The game is available for pre-order on the official Ubisoft site but not on the Stadia store yet. You can however register for Beta access here and Stadia is listed which is fantastic.
No word on availability for GFN member's via Ubisoft Connect as yet so I'll keep my eye on that.
Humankind - A Historical Strategy game where you will re-write the entire narrative of humankind – a convergence of culture, history, and values that allows you to create a civilization that is as unique as you are.
We already know Humankind is coming to Stadia on August 17 but a recent tweet from the official Humankind Twitter account has revealed it is also coming to GeForce NOW.
Gain access by pre-purchasing on @Steam or @EpicGames Store, and coming to a cloud near you with @NVIDIAGFN.
