I hope I am not making too many suggestions.

I thought there was too much blood in the animation of the disabled operative, when he/she is laying on the ground and kicking the legs, waiting for someone to revive him/her.
There was a trail of gore on the ground.

An option in the menu to switch off the blood would be great. Mount and Blade had that option and made the gaming much more pleasant.

I'd like that too. I'll even take you one further and have a language filter option as well. I get tired of playing games where the bad guys are swearing every two seconds. I'm not a fan of Halo per se, but I play it with my son as it's one of the few clean FPS games. I hate when I have to wait until the kids go to bed before I can play a game because it's dropping FBombs. I'm also not the biggest Call of Duty fan but at least I could play Advanced Warfare private matches and exo survival with him because there was that no language thing and they had that no blood mode where everything was paintball splats. That made it far more kid friendly. I had a friend challenge me on the fact that I was still letting him play a violent video game. I asked him to explain the difference between what we were doing and paintball or laser tag which most everyone acknowledges are fine for kids. He said "yeah, but you're shooting realistic people". I said "more realistic than the ACTUAL people you shoot playing paintball?" Once he got past his initial gut reaction he couldn't prove there was much, if any difference. No bad language and blood and bullets are removed and replaced with paintballs and paint splats. At the end of the round the players come back so death isn't even permanent - it's more like being tagged out until you respawn or the round begins again. The other point to this too is that your kids aren't very likely to go around actually shooting people in the real world, but if they hear FBombs all over the place THAT is something they're likely to emulate in reality. The whole kid argument aside though - even as an adult, I get annoyed with all the swearing in games when it's gratuitous as well. Now I have no idea, maybe Siege doesn't even have any in the first place. If it doesn't kudos to them. If it does though, I'd be up for a filter which can be turned on that takes those phrases out of the rotation.

NOTE: NO OFFENSIVE LANGUAGE OR OFFENSIVE CONTENT,
WAS USED IN THE MAKING OF THIS FORUM POST

lceycat has a GREAT POINT!....

I too am annoyed with the overabundance of F-Bombs and offensive language in all these shooter games today like, Battlefield, GTA, Far Cry 3/4, Assassin's Creed, Splinter Cell, COD and others in general. It's getting really old for game developers to think... "We have to add offensive language to make our games more realistic!!!" Garbage! Having your game earn, a Mature or Adult Rating because of pure offensive language is... childish. If a game developer believes this kind of language is necessary... then it's time for them to close up shop and move on to another business. My family and friends don't want to hear this stuff, while I play a game in my family living room... and neither do I. So I'll save my money... if Siege becomes a porn show.

This is one of the many reasons, I will be judging Rainbow6 Siege on TWITCH to watch how others play Siege, how the game runs, it's maps and it's game modes... as well as any offensive game language content. Either allow your customers to turn off the childish swear words... or it's time to boycott UbiSoft games until they do. UbiSoft has the ability to make great games... but not require their customers to have to turn the game sounds down so low, so others don't have to listen, to the game language porn.

You don't allow offensive language on these UbiSoft Forums and Ubi Forum Moderators will edit, delete or ban player's posts, if such offensive language is used in their posts. Even though when you sign up to join the UbiSoft Forums... you must follow strict rules to join or see the UbiSoft mature game trailers, so it looks good to your public visitors, that UbiSoft is enforcing some kind of decency rules. Then UbiSoft will enforce these "offensive language rules"... on mature forum member's posts. But it's OK for UbiSoft (and the majority of game developers) to use over the top offensive PORN language in their games. That makes UbiSoft hypocritical at best... and juvenile at worst! On the majority of gaming news websites(including UbiSoft's own video trailer site)... I must select my date of birth and declare my age is appropriate, to view a UbiSoft game video.

If you(UbiSoft Mods), don't allow offensive language in these and other UbiSoft Forums... then take the offensive language out of your games.. or at least give your customers the option to tone it down when playing your games! Time to grow up and become mature adults and game developers!

This is a great list for UbiSoft to be on: http://www.lakebit.com/top-5-most-violent-video-games-of-2014-according-to-consumer-reports/

And some game history UbiSoft must be proud of: http://www.mobygames.com/attribute/sheet/attributeId,1423/offset,25/so,0a/

Does UbiSoft remember this one? http://www.1up.com/news/ubisoft-apologizes-gay-slur-scrabble

I was going to add a YouTube video here as an example... of UbiSoft's Far Cry 3... but I'm sure the UbiSoft Forum moderators would have to delete their own Far Cry 3 game video... because of "offensive language content". Can anyone spell: Double Standard?

Nuff Said.

So what hes saying is there video games can be as verbally abusive as the developers can make them but please don't post videos or compilation of videos of there games with there voice actors doing a ton of swearing. Its funny gamers of all ages play there games but isnt censored or simply choose to not use abusive swearing but the same gamers of all ages who can view the forums cant use the same words they use in there games here, thats just funny. UBIsoft = Hypocrites? LMAO

UbiSoft's games are rated and aimed at different markets.
You say that gamers of all ages play their games, and I'm sure that's true, but I'm sure the creators of Rainbow 6 or Watch Dogs are not creating that entertainment for children, but for adults.
Dora the Explorer and Game of Thrones are made for different audiences and are not held to the same standards. The same should be true for games.
If you object to bad language in games, don't buy them, and if that is a common opinion the market will adjust to keep sales.

Wow you clearly missed the point sir, my point is if there not going to censor there games in anyway then why should we be censored here? What jax was saying was despite the games his company makes if you link to videos of there games using abusive language to make your abusive point it will be censored or deleted, hence the joke of UBIsoft = Hypocrites? Maybe? I dont care if there games are super vulgar if it relates to the story or content, again it was me making fun of UBIsoft and the admins enforcing the censorship of the forums because ist for people of all ages and slapping a PG-18 label on the game isnt the loophole. If you want to censor the forums then at the very least have the actors read the same lines twice, one for adults and one for folks who want to tone down the laguage for or in front of there kids.

I have a 5 year old daughter who wants to play this too!
She also asks if you can remove blood as no one REALLY bleeds when shot, and because red pixels scare her too! and could you also please add barbie pink camoflage and replace the Stim-gun with a fairy dust wand?

Not asking to censor blood for everyone
Merely asking to have an option where there is no blood.

So that those who want blood would have blood, and those who don't want it would have no blood.

Customization and options. that's the wonder of videogames.

I sympathize with parents who want to "thread the needle." As the parent of a tween-aged boy, many of whose classmates have no rules for computer use, I come off as the hard-nosed parent because I care what my kid sees online. I would like for him to be able to participate with some of these games his buddies are into, but not necessarily saturate him with the adult content in the games.

Tom Clancy's R6 Raven Shield had a setting for high and low gore. (Ah, the good old days.) We reinstalled that title recently, and have been having a lot of fun with it. That said, my kiddo is super-psyched about Siege.

I think adding some switches to the Settings panel to dial back the potentially objectionable material could help Ubisoft reach a slightly larger market with regard to parents.

How about they just replace all the guns with walkie-talkies and make it so the winner is the one who gives the most hugs to his opponents? Damn snowflakes.

Simulated combat sports and death matches, all ok as long as there's no naughty words or red stuff?

So encouraging calculated aggression in the ultimate goal to shoot peoples virtual faces is seen as more acceptable than the virtual character swearing when explosions are about to kill them?

Priorities guys, you have them pretty warped.

I get that you mean well and all that but christ alive this mentality is far more damaging and morally reprehensible than being worried about "f-bombs".

Last I checked the maniacal school shootings and completely acceptable wars where millions die are a bit more problematic than sheltering a child from words that have some arbitrarily offensive connotations attached to them by some ****wit.

Much as I love to play these games I utterly despise this viewpoint that games like these need more diluting to make them acceptable for kids, hell no. Blowing a face open with a submachine gun isn't something that should be toned down and gamified to be palatable for children who aren't capable of handling blood or ****.
We should ask there be more gore, hear the slurping burbling of some of those open chest wounds, watch the eyes roll back and the skin go pale as the blood drains from the lifeless body. Tthen some of the less intelligent teens from poorer households or those just seeking some good clean pg-13 violence, maybe they won't be so eager to get themselves blown to pieces.

In the grand scheme of what's acceptable for a child, if I don't think they're capable of hearing 'bad' words and managing their behaviour in accordance to that, y'know what? I reckon I don't think they're capable of getting involved in aggressive combat orientated deathmatch games with simulated automatic weapons where the objective is a competition to see who's better as using 'toy' guns to shoot the brains out of 'toy' people.
