Game company Ubisoft has announced its plan, the Year 6 Roadmap for popular video game Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege.
In Year 6, more support and additions will be coming to the game. It will be coming in core gameplay changes, new tools to encourage positive behavior, quality of life improvements, and a comprehensive Year 6 roadmap. This will unveil the nationality of the new Operators and the reworked maps.
During Year 5, Ubisoft released core updates like the Match Replay, sight color customization, six operators, a completely reworked Tachanka and many more. Ubisoft’s long term commitment to offer an ever more tactical, fair and stable experience to all players continues in Year 6.
Crimson Heist will be the first season of the Year 6. It will introduce 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 the rework of the map Favela. Season 3 will have Operators coming from Croatia. There will be three maps that will be slightly reworked too. The last Operator will be coming from Ireland and the reworked map will be Outback.
A first version of the Reputation System has been shadow tested in the past new season, running in the background but not visible for players. The goal of this tool is to encourage positive behavior within the game by rewarding players with a positive impact on the game with in-game content, while punishing toxicity by limiting access to ranked playlist for instance. This tool will be transparent for players in order to inform them how to increase their scores and adapt their behavior. This tool will launch during Year 6.
As they are an essential part of the community, a streamer mode has been designed for content creators to control their anonymity when playing. This tool will allow them to hide their name, region and ping, hide everyone else in the match, include a hidden matchmaking delay, hide their current clearance level and profile image. A first version of this tool will be available in the Crimson Heist Test Server.
The Gonne-6 will be the newest secondary weapon introduced to the game. It is a one-bullet secondary weapon that can destroy any bulletproof gadget and adds an extra loadout option to players. It will have its first version coming to the Crimson Heist test server for several operators: Glaz, Dokkaebi, Lion, Finka, Gridlock, Amaru, Iana and Zero.
Even after death, players will be able to control cameras and gadgets. This is to intensify the support phase in a game and to make sure players that are out can better help their team. It will be released sometime in Year 6.
A new balance has been introduced for Attack and Defense. There is now the possibility to change their Operators and loadouts as many times as they want in the preparation phase. It will be coming later also in Year 6.
Armor will now be switched to Health so that players can have a better understanding on how much damage they can take. This will also take effect in Year 6.
The technical team is working closely with their partner Microsoft Azure to keep reducing matchmaking time and improve server stability. The development team is hard at work in reducing the game size in general.
More customization options will be available in Year 6. They can adapt elite skins and to add other gears in the outfit for a full customized set.
CAPCOM and Ubisoft have partnered together to release the survival horror franchise Resident Evil skins. Jill Valentine Elite will be available for Zofia.
Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege is now available on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC.
