Rainbow Six Siege Burnt Horizon release date, Gridlock and Mozzie, Outback, Patch notes

Well that didn't take long. Not one day after we posted our Burnt Horizon roundup for Rainbow Six Siege, we got a teaser trailer showing off the new map - Outback. The new season is an Australia themed one, and the map looks to be a more open firefight compared to Villa and Fortress. This guide to Y4S1 will go over what we currently know…

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 Year 4 release date, new operators, Year 4 Season Pass

Rainbow Six Siege is about to enter its fourth year of DLC and seasonal balance changes. This is quite the feat, with the game retaining a healthy player base eager to get into the next map - Outback, and try out a couple of new operators. Operation Burnt Horizon is an Australia themed one, and if the hints from Ubisoft are anything to go by,…

Steam Charts: The Worst Ever Edition

I took it for granted. I knew I shouldn't, I think I even knew I was doing it at the time. But last week, when the charts were filled with new and interesting games, pushing out the tired and bloated titles, I didn't take the time to recognise what we had. And now, as can only be the direct responsibility of my careless credulity, everything…

Steam Charts: Fishy Wishies Edition

It worked! Everyone, it worked! The sacrifices we all made, they were all worth it. Some said we were fools to ritually slaughter those Fortnite players and smear our naked bodies with their blood and entrails, but look! No GTA V in the Steam Charts! And no Monster Hunter World! Sure, there's still flipping Clancy Siege, and obviously nothing short of sacrificing a god could…

Steam Charts: Zombified Edition

Once bitten, twice shy, is not a good aphorism for zombies. They're not very shy at all. In fact, some of them are positively bold. They've wreaked havoc with this week's Steam Charts, taking over nearly half the entries. Which, admittedly, saves me thinking up a bunch of other stupid shit to write. Yes, click through, read on, for the bunch of stupid shit I…

Rainbow Six Siege Clash: Q1 2019 update, what she can do and how to use her

Clash represents the first of her kind in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege, as she's the only defender that uses a shield. This presents players with some interesting interactions, as well as a bit more variety in how a team defends their various objectives. However there is an art to using Clash's shield effectively and a recent buff has made her slightly more useful, so our…

Rainbow Six Siege Doc: Q1 2019 update, what he can do and how to use him

Doc fulfils a unique role in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege as the defensive team's medic.

Rainbow Six Siege Rook: Q1 2019, what he can do and how to use him

Having an added layer of protection in cover is good and all, but in Rainbow Six Siege, you may want a defender that is immediately useful to the team by providing armour for them to wear. Rook has seen a slight damage reduction to his MP5, but he still has an ability that's perfect for new players to use. This guide on Rook will show…

Rainbow Six Siege Caveira: Q1 2019 update, what she can do and how to use her

Rainbow Six Siege doesn't have many operators that are solely focused on stealth and roaming, but Caveira scratches that itch. However a recent set of changes to the character could potentially make her less attractive to certain players. This guide will show you exactly why she's so deadly in the right hands, as well as details the recent changes to her gun.

Steam Charts: The tail of the Winter Sale

Ho ho ho! John still hasn't returned after Christmas, missing presumed drowned in egg nog, so I'm filling in today. Valve have already blarbed about 2018's best-selling games so we're back on the weekly charts. Last week's top ten was largely familiar, though catching the tail end of the Steam Winter Sale has introduced a few surprises.

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,…
