Publisher and developer Ubisoft puts out the full patch notes and console release date for the forthcoming update to its team-based shooter, Rainbow Six Siege.
Although Rainbow Six Siege‘s newest update hits PC platforms today, Ubisoft has officially announced that the patch will be released for the game’s PlayStation 4 and Xbox One ports tomorrow on June 1. For those unaware, Rainbow Six Siege‘s latest overhaul brings about a bevy of changes, including fresh features, balances to the game’s Operators, bug fixes, and a whole lot more that can be found in Update 3.2’s full patch notes over on the next page.
As far as new features go, Rainbow Six Siege fans can expect an addition called “shield charms,” which allows for universal charms to now be used on shield-wielding Operators. Plus, one of the more prominent alterations in relation to balance changes will disable auto-reload on the primary weapon for Blackbeard—that is, one of the characters introduced in the game’s Operation Dust Line DLC—when his shield is equipped.
In terms of what Rainbow Six Siege‘s developers have done to squash bugs, the latest patch introduces a fix for how players were occasionally not able to pick up breach charges after they were placed on the floor or trap doors. Also, the glitch where an Operator was close to dying and trying to climb a ladder no longer exists, as players shouldn’t get stuck during that particular process after the patch is applied.
For those unaware, one of the last major patches for Rainbow Six Siege involved a change to playlist HUDs and the addition of a Hardcore mode, so it’s good to know that the game’s developers are continuing to build upon the solid foundation of previous updates. Nevertheless, the tactical team-based shooter is likely to encounter more flaws in the future with forthcoming add-ons, but it’s not as if it has had, or will have the seemingly insurmountable problems of Ubisoft’s other leading Tom Clancy property, The Division.
In any event, since Rainbow Six Siege is considered by many to be one of the top 10 best video games of 2015, it’s safe to say that plenty of fans are ready for practically any fresh content or update developers have in store for the title. With that in mind, Rainbow Six Siege players are almost certainly on the edge of their seats in anticipation for Ubisoft’s release of the game’s Japanese Operator in DLC later this year.
