Ubisoft have rolled out its next major expansion, Operation Ember Rise - a hefty update which combines a reworked Kanal map with some nice new chaos-engendering gadgets and playable adrenaline junkies.

Rainbow Six Siege gets a chuffing grappling hook gun in Operation Ember Rise

After almost four years of being a game-shaped digital object, Rainbow Six Siege will soon qualify for 'actual certified video game' status when its next update adds a new character with a grappling hook. This gadget, a featured mandated by the video game certification board, will let Amaru whoosh up buildings and through windows. Proper video game stuff. She'll be joined in Operation Ember Rise…

Rainbow Six Siege hosts an old west shootout for two weeks only

I may not be the most regular player of Rainbow Six Siege, but Ubisoft's twitchy team shooter always brings me back with its special events. Today's Showdown event is an old western three-on-three scenario set in an all new map, Fort Truth. Pump shotguns and magnum revolvers only, befitting the reskinned and old-timey operators. While not quite as ambitious as their alien mutant invasion event…

Rainbow Six Quarantine will fight more alien mutants in co-op

Mutant alien beasties will return to trouble the Rainbow 6 gang in new three-player cooperative FPS Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Quarantine, Ubisoft announced today. The two tangled in R6 Siege's Outbreak event mode in 2018 and now "a totally new breed of mutated alien parasite" is back for a full-on rumble. Ubisoft are pretty vague about this for now, sitting firmly in the "teaser" stage…

Rainbow Six Siege now punishing team-killers with their own bullets

After a couple months of test-server experimentation, Ubisoft are rolling out their new team-killer punishment to Rainbow Six Siege proper. While the studio confirm that today's iteration of "Reverse Friendly Fire" (RFF) is still to be refined and has a couple bugs still to be hammered out, it's ready enough for the big leagues. In short, if you shoot a teammate, they can choose whether…

Rainbow Six Siege unleashes a week of sparkling unicorn chaos

While normally a hellish day filled with corporations toying with hearts, April Fools has some perks, like this week's Rainbow Is Magic event in Rainbow Six Siege. Ubisoft have given the Plane map in the gritty tactical squad-shooter a Lisa Frank makeover. Hot pink unicorn and butterfly-themed operators and a handful of hard plastic toy soldiers fight for control of the VIP (Very Important Plushie),…

Rainbow Six Siege puts a team-killer’s fate in the hands of their victims

Ubisoft are changing how team-killing affects players in Rainbow Six Siege, with a new "reverse friendly fire" system rolling out on the test servers soon, described in this dev-blog post. If you manage to murder one of your friends in the twitchy tactical shooter (easy to do accidentally), the player you whacked will get a kill-cam showing them exactly what happened. At this point, it…

Rainbow Six Siege: Operation Burnt Horizon rappels down under today

Quite why anyone would do anything in the outback but stay in the shade and drink beer is beyond me, but it's today's new battlefield in Ubisoft squad shooter Rainbow Six Siege. Burnt Horizon adds a new map set out in a dusty desert service station, plus two role-reversing Australian gadgeteers added to the roster of playable operators. Attacker Gridlock can throw self-deploying patches of…

Vivendi finish selling Ubisoft shares from failed takeover

It's the end of another long day at Fags & Mags & Rab(bid)s, a wee family-owned shop and video game company on the corner of a sleepy street in the Parisian suburb of Montreuil. Michel Guillemot is down on his hands and knees, fishing under the pick 'n' mix display for loose sweets he then dusts on the lapel of his brown cotton shopcoat before…

Rainbow Six Siege devs lay out their plan of attack for this year

What do you call a bunch of sixteen-year-olds skiving off school to play a tactical team-based shooter? G Siege-ees. Wait, come back. I need to tell you about how the Rainbow Six Siege devs are invading Australia with Operation Burnt Horizon, the first event of Year Four. Early next month, you'll be running around a new map called Outback with two new aussie operators. Ubisoft…

Rainbow Six Siege ditches Starter edition and slashes unlock prices

As much as people (rightfully) mocked the convoluted Anthem launch graphs, Ubisoft remain the king of overly complicated multiple editions of games. Fortunately, they're simplifying things a bit for Rainbow Six Siege today - the tactical team shooter now no longer has a 'starter' edition, with anyone owning that getting a free upgrade to the regular edition. The Regular edition has dropped in price, and…

Ubisoft show off the outback in Operation Burnt Horizon trailer

G’day! Ubisoft have unveiled the new Rainbow Six Siege map they were teasing last week, and it’s Australia alright: kangaroos, didgeridoo music, and yet more kangaroos. Oh, and a massive shark, suspended from the ceiling, as you do. No koalas, though, which is a disappointment. Still, you can see it all for yourself in the trailer below.

Rainbow Six Siege exploit fills your eyes with garbage

A new Rainbow Six Siege exploit being abused by blaggards is like Rainbow Six Siege... on acid!!! The glitch, dubbed "Bird Box" by YouTuber "MicrowaveGaming" (a reference that will make more sense if you've seen that new Netflix film), fills the victim's screen with garbage jumbled polygons when they see it. There is a workaround to wipe your screen clean until Ubisoft hopefully fix this,…

Rainbow Six Siege drops automatic bans in favour of human moderation

Players of esports darling Rainbow Six Siege can now swear to their hearts content, so long as they don't mind their messages being forwarded to a moderation team. In a small developer blog post today, Ubisoft announced that they were rolling back a potentially over-zealous automatic ban feature intended to curb community toxicity. As of today, messages that would have previously earned a player a…

Rainbow Six Siege rocks the kasbah in Operation Wind Bastion tomorrow

Operation Wind Bastion, Rainbow Six Siege's latest major update rolls out tomorrow. The servers go down for maintenance at 2pm GMT and spring back to life with renewed vigour at 3, if nothing goes terribly wrong. This update introduces a very scenic new map in the Moroccan mountains, and the usual Attacker/Defender pair of new operators. New characters Nomad and Kaid have been beaten fiercely…

Rainbow Six Siege will keep skulls, slots, and neon boob after all

Ubisoft have decided to keep skull imagery, blood splats, gambling machines, and a neon breast in Rainbow Six Siege, three weeks after announcing plans to remove them to sanitise the game for launch in new Asian markets. Not everywhere is so keen on such things, y'know. Many players were unhappy with these cosmetic changes in maps and UI icons, I'm sure you can imagine. Ubisoft…

Rainbow Six Siege introduces long-range shoving with Operation Wind Bastion

Shoving people on their arse from long-distance is the superpower of one of the two new characters coming to Rainbow Six Siege with its next free update, and I cannot imagine a wizard more perfect for me. The other new wizard has the ability to electrify deployed wire, shields, and barricades, which is a nice bit of elemental magic but not as good as shoving.…

Rainbow Six Siege’s Moroccan kasbah looks too nice to shoot to pieces

Ubisoft Montreal have unveiled Rainbow Six Siege's next multiplayer map, first teased earlier this week. Out in the southern Moroccan hills lies a surprisingly scenic old fortress, used as a military training site, but I'm going to feel bad for rampaging through it guns blazing. There are high towers, sheer walls, lots of solid looking cover and far too much stained glass. It's an impressive…

Rainbow Six Siege heads to Morocco in Operation Wind Bastion

Rainbow Six Siege is escaping rainy old Blighty in favour of warmer climes for its fourth season this year. Operation Wind Bastion is taking the tactical game of window abuse to the Kingdom Of Morocco, and into a very scenic old fort out in the mountains. This update will also introduce the usual duo of new operators, this time taken from the ranks of the…
