rainbowsix-siege-logoTHE FIRST OF FOUR MAJOR CONTENT UPDATES INTRODUCES NEW OPERATORS, A NEW MAP AND MORE

Ubisoft announce that the Operation Black Ice free update for Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Siege is now available on Xbox One, PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and Windows PC.

As part of the ongoing commitment to provide new content on a regular basis for Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Siege, the Operation Black Ice content pack includes the new yacht map, two new operators, Frost and Buck, from the elite Canadian special operations JTF 2 force, and new weapon skins. Additionally, the Spectator Camera feature will be available online for all platforms in custom games.

Maps and modes will be free and available immediately for everyone. New operators and most weapon skins can be unlocked with earned currency, called Renown, or with R6 Credits.

Season Pass holders will instantly receive the new JTF 2 operators and non-Season Pass owners will be able to unlock them using Renown in-game currency or R6 Credits starting on February 9th.

The Ubisoft Forums offer details on a new patch that’s now live in Rainbow Six: Siege, updating the first-person shooter sequel to version 1.3, and the UbiBlog has further word. The patch notes outline what’s changed, including anti-cheating improvements, an update to their ban policy, and an exploit fix that’s being tested and should go live on all platforms today. Here’s the overview:

Today we are sharing our third update. This one is smaller because we felt we needed to quickly fix some issues. The changes described below will take effect on January 13th for PC and on January 20th for consoles, except the server tick rate improvement, the anti-cheating and banning policy improvements as well as the out-of-zone insta-kill option which is effective for all immediately (read below for details). This patch will be released on PC first because of the faster deployment process, in order to test the impact the fixes have and adjust if needed. Note that tomorrow, January 13th, Patch 1.2 takes effect on consoles. A much bigger patch, Patch 2.0, will be released at the same time as Season 1, on February 2nd. This update will be made available on PC and consoles at the same time.

Please refer to our post about our top priorities and known issues to see our current plans and steps we are taking to improve the game as we move forwards. Note that this update, Patch 1.3, will not fix all of our current top issues and that we are actively working on fixing them as soon as possible.

If you’re playing Rainbow Six: Siege on PC, there’s an extra treat waiting for you today alongside the latest update – and it’s one you’ll definitely want to grab if you’re playing on a higher-end rig. Download the Ultra HD Texture Pack, and you’ll get new weapon and character textures that look amazing at resolutions up to 4K.

You don’t need a 4K monitor or ultra-high-end graphics card to take advantage of the new textures, however. For example, if you’re running a GPU with at least 4 GB of memory, you’ll notice a difference when using the new textures between 1080p and 1440p resolutions. Rainbow Six: Siege looks even better on a GPU with 6 GB or more, which lets players take full advantage of the Ultra HD Texture Pack at 4K resolution.

Finally, those running dual GPUs with 6 GB or more each will be able to breach walls and rescue hostages with the game looking its absolute sharpest, with 4K resolution, Ultra HD textures and the highest settings for lighting and shading.

The Ultra HD Texture Pack is available today as free DLC through Uplay and Steam. It’s separate from the update that’s also available now – which brings an auto-kick feature for intentional team killers, closes an exploit that let defenders leave their building duras well as bug fixes, matchmaking changes and a number of other improvements – so if your hardware is up to the challenge, be sure to grab it and make sure your Operators always look their best. Details on the larger update can be found here , and there’s always more news at the Rainbow Six: Siege blog.

rainbowsix-siege-logoUbisoft has launched a new video for Rainbow Six: Siege, a reboot of the series that puts players in the middle of lethal close-quarters confrontations.

rainbowsix-siege-logoRainbow Six’s long-awaited revival leaves us wanting more – a little too much more.

By Ryan McCaffery, IGN

Rainbow Six: Siege pulls me in opposite directions at the same time. On the one hand, the moment-to-moment gameplay experience is fantastic. Every second of the short rounds matter, walls and floors won’t protect you, and sound tactics win matches. But, like other 2015 multiplayer-focused shooters such as Evolve and Star Wars Battlefront, there’s not a lot of there there. My time with Siege leaves me feeling like this Rainbow Six revival is a skeleton with not a lot of meat on its bones.

The Rainbow Six website announces Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Siege is now available, offering the chance to siege the day with the latest installment in the tactical shooter series. The GeForce website offers a Graphics & Performance Guide on how to get the best visuals for the game on their hardware. The game is available on Steam and Steam announces that if you buy the game there before December 14th you get a free copy of Rainbow Six Vegas 1. This offering is being applied retroactively to all who preordered the game as well. Here’s the description of the game:

Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Siege invites players to master the art of destruction. Intense close quarters confrontations, high lethality, tactics, team play, and explosive action are at the center of the experience. The gameplay sets a new bar for intense firefights and expert strategy in the rich legacy of past Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six games.

Key Features
THE SIEGE GAMEPLAY
For the first time in Rainbow Six, players will engage in sieges, a brand-new style of assault. Enemies now have the means to transform their environments into strongholds: they can trap, fortify, and create defensive systems to prevent breach by Rainbow teams.

To face this challenge, players have a level of freedom unrivaled by any previous Rainbow Six game. Combining tactical maps, observation drones, and a new rappel system, Rainbow teams have more options than ever before to plan, attack, and diffuse these situations.

Rainbow Six: Siege is almost here, but before it launches, the developers want to give everyone one more chance to try it out. That’s why they will be running an Open Beta on all platforms from November 25 through November 29. This is your opportunity to hop in, play with the operators, check out a few of the maps and modes on offer, and help the developers run one last stress test before the game officially launches on December 1 on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

Because of the Open Beta, all players will be able to pre-load the game on November 23, and those who participated in the Closed Beta in September will be able to jump into the Open Beta a day early (on November 24). During the Open Beta, you’ll have access to 14 operators (out of the 20 that will be available at launch), including 3 of the Russian Spetsnaz operators you may have seen during the Closed Beta – Glaz, Tachanka and Kapkan.

Ubisoft has launched a new video for Rainbow Six: Siege, a reboot of the series that puts players in the middle of lethal close-quarters confrontations. For the first time in a Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six game, players will engage in sieges, a new style of assault where enemies have the means to transform their environments into modern strongholds while Rainbow Six teams lead the assault to breach the enemy’s position.

Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Siege promises to give players unprecedented control over their ability to fortify their position – by reinforcing walls and floors, using barbed wire, deployable shields and mines, and more – or breach the enemies’ using observation drones, sheet charges, rappelling, and more.

rainbowsix-siege-logoTHROUGH AN INTENSE ONLINE TRAINING PLATFORM, PLAYERS WILL LEARN THE BEST INTERVENTION TACTICS AND HAVE THE CHANCE TO WIN A KEY FOR THE UPCOMING CLOSED BETA

Today, Ubisoft unveiled that Art of Siege, the first community facility to learn, master and discuss the strategies and tactics of siege, is now available online. This interactive platform will allow players to better prepare their future matches in Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Siege, the upcoming installment of the best-selling Rainbow Six franchise, when it releases worldwide on December 1 for PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft and Windows PC.

Being one of the most complex forms of warfare, the siege technique requires years of training for elite teams, in order to handle each situation with the right strategies and tactics. With Art of Siege, players will enter Field Training, an intense Rainbow Six training program allowing them to get familiar with the different gambits, strategies and Operator specialties. Only the players able to earn the total gold stars in the five Field Training Exercises will obtain a key to the Closed Beta.

Art of Siege will also include Wall of Tactics, an area in which each Closed Beta participant will be able to share their best tactical videos, recorded during their own matches. It will be up to other players to vote and elect which tactics are the best overall. Wall of Tactics will go live with at the launch of the Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Closed Beta, on September 24 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC.

Here’s an Art of Siege trailer for your viewing pleasure.

Players can start their Art of Siege training right now on the Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Siege website, at this address: www.rainbow6.com/artofsiege
