Six Invitational Day 1 Preview

24/01/2017 12:00 PM

The Six Invitational is nearly upon us, so we are giving a detailed preview into what you can expect on all three days. Since this is our biggest event ever, we didn’t want a typical transition in-between competition for breaks, so we will be bringing you exclusive panels with some of the people who have worked on the game since its inception.


Remember, you’ll be able to watch everything from the Six Invitational on February 3-5 on our Twitch and YouTube channels.


Schedule

Day 1 Competition Details

We jump start the Six Invitational on Day 1 with the PC and Xbox One Quarter Finals. These matches will put the international qualifier teams who have been competing to earn their spot for the past two months. These teams have a ton of passion and will need to prove their worth if they want to get to Day 2. For more information on these teams, check out this blog.

Conception of Siege Panel

Host: Genevieve Forget (Product Manager)

Panelists: Xavier Marquis (Creative Director), Alexandre Remy (Brand Director),  Mathieu Gangon (Technical Design Director)

Approximate Time: 12:45PM EST

Rainbow Six Siege was built because of passionate people who shared a strong belief in creating this game. This panel will sit down for an intimate conversation with some of the people who were behind the original conception of Rainbow Six Siege. They’re going to reveal what it is was like in those early years of developing Siege, and also take a look back at how we got to where we are now.

Community Spotlight Panel

Host: Justin Kruger (Community Developer)

Panelists: Tangy_D, Lil_Lexi, EdeMonster, and a special guest.

Approximate Time: 3:35PM EST

Rainbow Six Siege would not be what it is without the community that has rallied behind it in year one. In this panel, our Community Developer will be talking with three of our community leaders about their personal experiences with Siege. We also have a special surprise guest {-}7.

Creative Q&A Panel

Host: Justin Kruger (Community Developer)

Panelists: Leroy Athanassoff (Game Designer), Adam Crawley (Gameplay Programmer), Farah Daoud-Brixi (Writer).

Approximate Time: 5:25PM EST

The Creative Q&A will be focused on three creative disciplines that bring a lot of life to Siege. Our three esteemed panelists will be pulling back the curtain on how we develop operators, write their lines, and program the game to make it better. They will be taking questions from audience members at the Six Invitational, and a few from online.
