So they say that they are getting back to the tactical roots of the old school Rainbow games..
I highly doubt it.
First off it's UBI, who was responsible for taking the Rainbow and Ghost Recon games away from that direction in the first place, and has never made a good tactical shooter. (Red Storm Entertainment were the devs responsible for the good R6 and GR games)
And the article says "there is a brand new cover system that takes you out of the first-person perspective and into the third."
How is that brand new ? That's what Vegas had and it was bs. It lets you see everything and survey the battlefield, while still being protected (which is nonsense for a supposed semi-realistic/tactical game)
If they want a cover mode, they should do it Red Orchestra style. No going to a 3rd person view crap.
