TOM CLANCY’S RAINBOW SIX SIEGE PRESENTS THE FUTURE OF SIEGE
THE DEVELOPMENT TEAM ANNOUNCES THE YEAR 6 ROADMAP, MANY CORE GAMEPLAY CHANGES, NEW TOOLS TO ENCOURAGE POSITIVE BEHAVIOUR AMONG MANY OTHER UPDATES
Today, during the Rainbow Six Siege Community and Game Celebration, Ubisoft® announced its plan for the Future of Siege. The continuous support and additions to Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six® Siege from the studio in the past years will continue in Year 6 and onwards, with core gameplay changes coming throughout the year, new tools to encourage positive behaviour, quality of life improvements and a comprehensive Year 6 roadmap, unveiling the nationality of the new Operators and the reworked maps.
During Year 5, Rainbow Six Siege released core updates such as Match Replay, sight colour customisation, six operators, a completely reworked Tachanka and much more. Ubisoft’s long term commitment to offer an ever more tactical, fair, and stable experience to all players continues in Year 6.
YEAR 6 ROADMAP
Crimson Heist, the first season of the Year 6, will bring the Argentinian attacker Flores and the rework of the map Border. This season will be available tomorrow on the PC Test Server. Season 2 will introduce an Operator from the Nakoda Nations and a rework of the map Favela. Season 3’s Operators will come from Croatia. During season 3, three maps will also be slightly reworked. To conclude, the last Operator of the year will be from Ireland, and the reworked map will be Outback.
In Year 6, players will now have more customisation options for their Operators: players will be able to adapt elite skins and to add other gears in the outfit for a full customised set.
Last but not least, Ubisoft announced a partnership with Capcom® and its survival horror franchise Resident Evil™. An Elite skin of Resident Evil series veteran Jill Valentine Elite will be available for Zofia, with an additional Resident Evil x Rainbow Six Siege skin coming in Year 6. Ubisoft has also partnered with Creative Director Ikumi Nakamura for the release of a series of skins, starting with Echo and Dokkaebi releasing on 2nd March.
