One of the country's best, Joaby ran us through a massive update for Rainbow Six Siege that happens to have a character that rhymes with "I Am" in it, with his best Moe voice on display.

You'll get it when you read it.

Here's a peek around the corner:
"There's that one corner in Archives — just behind the shelving near the ledge window — where the Fuze grenades never seemed to get to, so you'd have three defenders clambering on top of each other all ready to spring out when the cluster finally finished. Peeking Attackers from the benchtop in Kitchen was always a dog move, but one of those things you had to do to help bambinos learn the ropes.
There's more where that comes from, you just need to click here.

Which is big news across a number of fronts, but could have those out there screaming for a new instalment in the long running Splinter Cell series more than just as a playable operative in Rainbow Six Siege just a bit miffed. But hey, maybe this exposess him to an all-new audience for something further down the track?



Here's the debriefing in full ahead of our own hands-on with the new content scheduled for tomorrow:
In Operation Shadow Legacy, players will be able to rediscover Sam Fisher as an Attacker named Zero, equipped with a new gadget, the Argus Launcher, a two-way drill camera. The cameras are launched to pierce soft or reinforced walls, windows, and hatches or stick to any surface. Once viewing the camera, the Attacker can rotate the camera’s vision to see the other side of the wall. Each camera is equipped with one lazer charge, usable to deal damages to Defenders or destroy gadgets. Sam Fisher is also coming with his unique weapon the SC3000K & melee weapon: the Karambit.

In addition to Sam Fisher, players will be able to explore a reimagined Chalet map, which has been newly reworked. The team has improved the first and the second floors, and the roof is now traversable, among other features. Objectives have been the main focus of this rework, with a hallway added to improve rotation in the Basement, and the Trophy site has been switched for a new one in Dining.

Alongside this new season, Ubisoft unveiled that Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege will be available to play for free from August 27th to September 4th, depending on the platform. Interested players can join the more than 60 million players in the Rainbow Six Siege community across all platforms, including immediate access to all maps, modes, and 20 legacy Operators.

Ahead of this free week, Ubisoft also announced the launch of SquadFinder, a mobile and desktop web application designed to help players match with teammates according to their language, playstyle, and overall game habits. SquadFinder is now available at http://rainbow6.com/squadfinder.

Additional game updates include the following:
  • Ping 2.0
  • Map Ban
  • New secondary gadget: the Hard Breach Charge
  • New Optics and Sights Colors
  • New Reinforcement Pool


The Test Server for Operation Shadow Legacy will go live on August 18th. The Test Server is an alternative version of Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege, allowing players to test upcoming gameplay features that will make their way into the main game itself. Since this is a testing environment, a consistent gameplay experience is not guaranteed on the Test Server. Players are invited to submit the issues they encounter on the Test Server on the R6 Fix platform: https://r6fix.ubi.com/. The Test Server is exclusive to Windows PC.
That's a lot to take in, and we'd have to assume legacy players are big Ubi franchise fans, so this feels like a massive win across the board. And as mentioned in the intro, who knows, maybe this is just the first major step in bringing Fisher back in standalone capacity down the track.

Watch a video for Rainbow Six Siege: Operation Shadow Legacy and all its moving parts embedded below, and stay tuned for our hands-on tomorrow.

The first season of Year 5 Rainbow Six Siege content is here with the arrival of Operation Void Edge - which sees the arrival of two new Operators, Iana and Oryx. Plus, a complete rework of the Oregon map that updates it look and layout to be more open and accessible.

But first, the new duo of Iana and Oryx.


Iana uses the Gemini Replicator, a remotely-controlled holographic copy of herself. When she deploys it, she can scout ahead with little to no consequences. It can move and produce sound like she would, but it cannot shoot, melee or use secondary gadgets. The Replicator has a time limit or can be exited at any time. The Replicator is all about fooling Iana’s opponents as well as collecting information. If the Gemini is spotted and destroyed by a Defender, it can help Iana deduce the threat’s location, but it will buy her opponents a few precious seconds to reposition.

Oryx’s signature move is the Remah Dash. Its speed allows him to roam efficiently and cover short distances with unprecedented swiftness and can also be used to knock down opponents. Oryx can also dash through breakable walls, creating a wide opening, though he loses health every time the Remah Dash is used for breaching. Additionally, Oryx has the unique ability to interact with broken hatches. He can climb straight through for a quick rotation, or he can hang on the edge to peek or wait for the perfect moment to go up. As long as he’s hanging, Oryx can also opt to drop down if the climb seems too dangerous.

Owners of the Year 5 Pass have access to both of the new arrivals right now, with everyone else having to wait until March 17 to unlock them using Renown or R6 Credits. For more info on the Operation Void Edge update - head here.

With the Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege Year 4 wrapping up with its final season and the introduction of two new Operators. Kali and Wamai, an Attacker and Defender, from India and Kenya respectively. Kali comes equipped with a bolt-action sniper rifle - the CSRX 300 - that can penetrate and blow holes in breakable walls. As well as an entire team if you can line up the shot just right.

Wamai arrives with a new gadget,a megnet that can disrupt and put an end to certain grenade-powered plans.



Also coming is a reworked Theme Park map that looks to toss out the drab and poorly lit look of the original in favour of a new Chinese Castle theme that should prove to be more engaging.



Operation Shifting Tides will hit the Test Servers tomorrow.

The Halloween curse across gaming, especially the now ever-popular seasonal gaming, has begun, and today Ubisoft has kicked off its two-week run of Rainbow Six Siege: Doktor's Curse -- a twisted reimagining of the map "Theme Park".

Here's Ubi's official line on what you can expect with the Limited Timed Event:
In this exciting 5-vs.-5 Monster Hunt mode, players will have to choose between fighting or embracing the darkness. Exterminators: 5 Sledges wielding only 3 unique hammers as weapons and a selection of gadgets -- Eyenox Model III (Jackal), Heartbeat sensor (Pulse) and the EE-ONE-D (Lion) -- will face five Monsters: a cast composed of Lesion, Frost, Kapkan, Smoke, and Ela. The Monsters have no weapons but can use traps and have a unique ability created for this mode: they can turn momentarily invisible and run faster to escape. The Monster Hunters’ (Attackers) goal is to kill all monsters, while the Monsters (Defenders) try to survive the round.

The Doktor’s Curse Collection will introduce brand new skins for five operators. Smoke, Kapkan, Frost, Lesion, and Ela each get their own set of four items, as well as Doc and Bandit, for a total of 28 items. Additionally, classic 2018 Halloween skins are once again available for a limited time.
Jump in now while you can, and enjoy a trailer for the new content embedded below.



The “Doktor’s Curse” Event includes the new Ubisoft Club Challenge that allows players to earn one of the 28 packs if they achieve 20 kills while playing the Doktor’s Curse map, and a second pack if they manage to win 13 rounds in the Doktor’s Curse playlist. In addition, any players that log-in between October 23rd and November 6th will receive one free pack. Players can also purchase the Doktor’s Curse pack for 300 R6 Credits or 12 500 Renown, with a 10% discount for Y4 Pass owners.<

Thanks to the new Outback map and two new Operators - Gridlock and Mozzie. Both of which are naturally home grown, with Gridlock being an attacker that can deploy clusters of spikes on the ground called Trax Stingers and Mozzie being a defender that uses a little gadget to hack and take over enemy drones.

Here's a closer look at the two new Operators.


A farm girl from Central Queensland, Tori “Gridlock” Tallyo Fairous learned from an early age that the best way through any hardship is with the help of family. Years spent running the family cattle farm honed her natural leadership skills, but her preferred method for dealing with problems is to get stuck into them herself and to ignore the inevitable paperwork that piles up afterward. Suffice to say, taking on a more formal role as an officer in the SASR hasn’t been one of her top priorities, despite the many attempts made to promote her.

Max “Mozzie” Goose is her opposite. Affectionately known as a “show pony” there’s no mistaking when he walks into a room. He can talk for hours about the wild stunts he’s pulled… But at the end of the day it’s his exceptional work ethic and ability to integrate with any team – as well as his unnecessary yet spectacular derring-do – that made him a candidate for Rainbow.

Both new Operators come alongside the new Outback map as part of Year 4 of Rainbow Six Siege content. All players will have immediate access to the new map, but the two Operators will need to be unlocked - or obtained via the Year 4 Pass.

In addition to the news that we're finally getting Aussie operators in Rainbow Six Siege, Ubisoft has proudly announced that their addition also comes packaged with a new map called "Outback" as part of Operation Burnt Horizon.

The full reveal for the new operation will take place at Six Invitational on February 17 (18 for us), but ahead of then here's what Ubisoft has teased about Outback, which is accompanied by a short video we've embedded below:
Welcome to the Outback! Set in Australia’s Red Heart, this map is an homage to all the dusty service stations and motels that populate the forgotten highways of the continent, places filled with hardworking locals and specialty menu items you’ll find nowhere else.

Unfortunately for this particular pit stop, a passing nuclear convoy came crashing to a halt while under attack, forcing locals and patrons to flee and causing Rainbow to be called in. As to what inspired the team when designing the game’s 21st map, Assistant Level Design Director Jacques Wong says they referred to two fan favourites – Oregon and Clubhouse.

“We divided the map into three distinct sections – the Garage, the Motel, and the Restaurant – and put a lot of effort into making sure each section is recognisable, even from far away,” Wong explained. “There are specific colours for each section, and we used lighting and geometry to direct the player’s gaze to where they need to go.”

Additionally, the focus was on returning to a style of gameplay that players have enjoyed in the past, while keeping the meta in mind. “We wanted to emphasise the impact of player decision-making, so for example, there’s a limited number of doors between each sections” Wong continued. “Roamers can still create new paths by destroying walls, and there’s always the option of changing floors as a flanking strategy. It’s a medium-sized map, so players won’t need to go far to find alternative routes.”

Meanwhile, the three sections are as unique inside as they are out. Get ready for rooms packed with souvenirs and cultural artifacts from many a roadside petrol station across the Great Southern Land. You might even run into our friendly resident mascot, Norman, in the restaurant, though we do ask that you try not to stare.
Anyway, thanks Ubisoft, it's about bloody time aye.

Instead we're getting two new Operators hailing from Morocco, as Ubisoft revealed recently in regards to new details surrounding Season 4 content for the popular team-based competitive shooter -- one Attacker and one Defender.

"Operation Wind Bastion" will also feature a new map "Fortress" which is also heavily tied to the new Operators.
Year Three Season Four features the GIGR (Groupe d'Intervention de La Gendarmerie Royale). We’re bringing forth a map that represents the pinnacle of military training facilities and we’re introducing two Operators from the Kingdom of Morocco.

For Operation Wind Bastion and following a written agreement with the resident Commander, Rainbow Six has secured permission to use the renowned fortress located in the Atlas Mountains. You’ll have the rare opportunity to test your skills inside a stunning mudbrick kasbah. Enjoy unprecedented roof access, but do try to stay focused despite the breathtaking oasis just next door.

The first Operator is a Defender and the Commander himself who is as stoic as the mountains are immovable. He is stationed at the country’s legendary kasbah, a training ground that has shocked and awed thousands of incoming soldiers. Strict and imposing, he inspires respect and has taken it upon himself to guide the future of Moroccan Special Forces.

The second Operator is an Attacker who travels wherever the wind takes her. She’s among the few explorers who can cross the Sahara, climb up the Alps, trek through Asia’s rainforests, march along the Arctic Circle…and still return to her unit in operational shape. Perceptive and resourceful, she’s an expert on environmental operations with a knack for pushing the enemy back.

Visit our Rainbow Six Twitch Channel on November 17th and 18th for the full reveal of Operation Wind Bastion during the Pro League Finals.
The larger question, of course, is when will we see Aussie Operators? I mean, our SAS is regarded as one of the most elite forces in the world, and there are a lot of Rainbow Six Siege players here in Oz. C'mon, Ubi, get this shit rolling!

Where in addition to a rework of the Hereford Base map, two new game changing Operators also join the ranks - Maverick and Clash. And really though it's all about Maverick who has a high-tech melty-gun thing that can burn holes through just about any wall or barrier leading to some very cool opportunities.

Plus, the ability to create melty-hole art. Check it out.



On the other hand, Clash is a new defensive Operator that has a full body shield that can stun enemies in what looks to be fairly annoying if you're on the other end of her shield.

In addition to the new content the Year 3 update also brings the following changes and fixes.
  • Correction of the weapon sights misalignment that caused automatic weapon to diverge from where the reticle was positioned.
  • From now on if players are not able to select an Operator before the end of the selection phase, they will no longer be assigned Recruit, but will be assigned a random Operator from the list they have already unlocked.
  • Ability to mute the text or voice chat of each player individually.
  • Hatch Reinforcements will now allow for partial destruction.
  • Finally, in addition to gameplay and technical fixes, players can expect some map balancing adjustments on Consulate.

  • Rainbow Six Siege is playable on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

    What's even more impressive is that it was only eight months ago that we reported on the game hitting the 20 million player milestones across PC and consoles. If you've been playing Rainbow Six Siege it's not hard to see why, as the experience offers one of the most exciting, tense, and competitive team-based shooters currently available. And one that has only gotten better with time thanks to excellent post-launch content.

    Off the back of the recent Operation Chimera content drop, Rainbow Six Siege has also found success as an esport, where it continues to gain popularity. The 2018 Six Invitational has seen record numbers of people watching - including 321,000 peak concurrent viewers and more than 6.2 million hours watched across all channels.

    To celebrate these milestones Ubisoft has released a cool new video, showcasing some of the Rainbow Six players talking about what is their go-to game.



    "On behalf of the entire team, we wanted to thank every member of our diverse, global community for their support of our game. Our players are the most valuable element to our game. Over the last three years, we have endeavored to create a solid community built on transparency as we grow and evolve the ever-expanding world of Rainbow Six Siege," said Alexandre Remy, Brand Director, Rainbow Six Siege. "We are so tremendously honored to achieve this milestone, and we will continue to do everything we can to earn each and every new person that decides to play."

    As Rainbow Six Siege enters its Year 3 of content, it shows now signs of slowing down.

    Which alongside Operation Chimera’s two new operators, kicks off the first major content for Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege Year 3 across PC and consoles. The two new Operators, Lion and Finka, are especially adept at handling bio-chemical threats. Which is handy because the new co-op mode, Outbreak, is very much a zombie-infestation survival event.

    That will be playable for the next month. Gameplay trailer below.



    Year 3 also marks some changes to the Rainbow Six Siege model, to better accommodate new or new-ish players. Like the removal of the Renown cost of the original 20 Operators and all attachments for all players who own the Standard Edition or the Advanced, Gold, and Complete editions. Plus, those who purchase the Starter Edition after will receive a total of six random Operators, instead of two.

    With no sequel currently in the works and the active player count for Rainbow Six Siege still growing - now hitting over 27 million across all platforms. The current Year model for the game seems to be part of the roadmap, with new Operators and maps making up the bulk of the content. Which will see changes to the standard edition by offering up more Operators to players.

    Where Ubisoft hopes to reach a number of 100 sometime in the future. Of course a lot of the success has to be thanks to just how well Rainbow Six Siege works as an esport, offering great team-plays and often nail-biting and intense matches. Even so, Ubisoft will be implementing changes to the Pro-league in upcoming seasons.



    Also, events like the upcoming Outbreak co-op Rainbow Six Siege bit of content that will run throughout March. As per the title and the above trailer it looks like a fun diversion from standard play.

    Year 3 of Rainbow Six Siege will break competition and play into four Seasons and over the course of another calendar year introduce eight new operators, new maps (with two that we know of being set in Italy and Morocco), and of course updates and improvements.

    The announcement comes after the recent wrap up of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege Season 3 Pro League Final that took place in Sao Paulo from November 17-19.


    The next season is also set to get the first co-op event for Rainbow Six Siege called Outbreak. The Year 3 Pass will be available for purchase on December 12.

    And it brings the new abandoned Hong Kong-based Theme Park map to everyone, in addition to three new operators for Season Pass holders. Everyone else will need to wait until September 12 to unlock them via the in-game currency system. And as the popularity of Rainbow Six Siege continues to grow, Operation Blood Orchid is also bringing the biggest non-content update.

    Representing "the largest update for Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege ever deployed, bringing fixes and improvements to the game, including an updated lighting system, data clean-ups on operators, optimized stability, reduced load times and a smaller memory footprint". Plus network love in the form of new servers to "enhance stability, connectivity and overall performance".

    Great stuff all round.



    The Operation Blood Orchid is available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

Even though it came out a little while ago, thanks to ongoing support, updates, and a great community that has now over 20 million registered players, now's the time to see what all the fuss is about.

    Tactical!



    Oh, and Rainbow Six Siege will also be 50% off from now until September 4. And the next big update, Operation Blood Orchid, drops September 5 with new operators and a new Theme Park map set in Hong Kong.

    With more than 2.3 million players signing on each and every day. Yeah, it's pretty popular and since launch has grown quite impressively. The recent Operation Health initiative which aimed to fix and improve the overall Rainbow Six Siege experience recently wrapped up, with the next season set to kick off in the coming weeks. It'll be set in Hong Kong.



    "Our community is growing and so is our ambition to make Siege a shooter that is here to stay," says Nicolas Lefebvre, Product Director. "The next few weeks are very exciting as it marks the culmination of Operation Health and the release of our next season set in Hong Kong."

    As per previous Seasons, players can expect new Operators and Maps.
