Operation: Void Edge operators crash the Rainbow 6 test server tomorrow

Rainbow Six Siege is all about mind games. Baiting out attackers, creating false lines of attack, making sure the bad guys step into your crosshairs before you wander into theirs. Operation Void Edge's two new Operators hit the public test server tomorrow, and approach deceptive play with two radically different visions. One of them will trick you into seeing ghosts, and the other will have…

Rainbow Six Siege is introducing a human wrecking-ball and a lunar ghost

It's a romantic tale as old as time. He's on the run, smashing through walls with his beefcake physique. She's in space and might be a ghost. Can I make it any more obvious? Rainbow Six Siege is preparing to take off with its first Season of the new year. Making its teaser debut today, Operation Void's Edge is taking Ubisoft's shooter high into orbit,…

Today is the day for this Shifting Tides update to Mr. Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege that I keep hearing so much about. There's a returning map, two new operators, and the addition of limb penetration. Here are the highlights from the new update so you can start thinking about new strats before you encounter these new operators in the wild.

Rainbow Six Siege partners with Netflix for a free week of crime

Once stalwart agents of counterterrorism, two of Rainbow Six Siege's elite operators have decided to ditch their day jobs for a week on the other side. From today through Monday the 25th, Hibana and Vigil are joining up with the crew of Netflix's Money Heist for some crimson crime capers in Siege's first crossover outside of loaning characters to other Ubisoft games. There's no need…

Rainbow Six Siege’s Shifting Tides update breaches the test server today

If Rainbow Six Siege's next Season leaked last week, then Ubisoft tipped the whole bucket right over last night. Shifting Tides was officially announced during the Pro League Finals in Tokyo, bringing two Operators into the special forces deathmatch. Hit the Siege test server later today to try next season's new gunslingers, devastating new rifle, physics-breaking toys and a reworked Theme Park.

Rainbow Six Siege leaks its wet and wild next season, Shifting Tides

Is it on the nose to call this a leak? Earlier today, Ubisoft posted a brief clip of Rainbow Six Siege's next season, Shifting Tides. Despite gentle, rolling waves that'd keep resident sea-dweller Alice O satisfied, I don't think Ubi are ditching high-stress firefights for a rollicking seaside adventure. We've seen a brief glimpse of Shifting Tide's new gadgets, and these toys ain't messing around.

Ubisoft suing Rainbow 6 cheatmaker who talked about his works on the BBC

Ubisoft's lawyers have loaded their lawguns and stacked up to breach and clear the coffers of a team who make and sell cheats for Rainbow 6 Siege. They believe a Dutch teenager is a key figure in MizuSoft, whose cheat includes the usual wallhack and recoil-cancelling and such, and his mother is helping process its subscription payments. Ubisoft say they spend a whole lot of…

The booted-up lady doing a high-kick with a grappling gun in the picture above is one of the two latest Operators added to Rainbow Six Siege this week. 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…

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),…

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…
