Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Take-Down – Missions in Korea is a South Korean-made PC game release on July, 2001. The game is not based on the Rainbow Six game timeline since the game was not released outside of South Korea and was only made by Kama Digital Entertainment for the South Korean gaming market with major content difference and the game's events on South Korean soil.

In the game, RAINBOW gets deployed to South Korea and battles seemingly armed terrorists and criminals that have committed various acts, mostly against South Korean nationals. Later on, they find out they are actually faced against a Yakuza group trying to outsmart them and keep them occupied.

Plot[edit]

RAINBOW gets summoned by South Korean officials to be deployed to South Korea in the year 2003 after a rush of criminal and terrorist activities takes place on South Korean soil, starting with a terrorist group named ATX taking several civilians hostage.[1] As more and more missions continues to be placed under RAINBOW's watch, RAINBOW intelligence gets wind of a criminal plot by a Japanese yakuza group to expand their activities in South Korea from Japan. To do this, ATX and other criminal and terrorist groups are used in order to distract South Korean security forces from finding out their true motives.[1]

Setting[edit]

In the Tom Clancy universe, this game is placed between Rogue Spear - Urban Operations and Rogue Spear - Covert Ops Essentials. As such, it is considered to be set in an alternate timeline where the events of Coverts Ops Essentials and other subsequent titles after Urban Operations never took place since Take-Down is not considered to be part of the Rainbow Six game series.[2]

Content[edit]

Major differences in the game include 15 South Korean RAINBOW operatives, 26 game maps, 4 RAINBOW uniforms, and 15 firearms, some of which showcase South Korean-made weapons like the Daewoo K2 assault rifle and the Daewoo K3 light machine gun.

Only 5 non-South Korean operatives were in the game, including Ding Chavez and Eddie Price.

Development[edit]

It was announced on a press conference on February 5, 2001 that the game would be released in June 2001.[2] Despite promises from Red Storm Entertainment that the game would be released internationally, it was not released in North America, Europe, or any other country except for South Korea.[2]
