Rainbow Six Siege will be available for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X later this year. Operation Shadow Legacy is now live for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege is coming to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X in 4K and 120 FPS with render scaling.

The next-gen version of the game will be available later this year at the same price as the current-gen version. All current game owners will get the new version of the game on the same family of devices at no additional cost when and where available, and players will keep their progression and in-game content.

Rainbow Six Siege will be a cross-generation game.

Operation Shadow Legacy, Rainbow Six Siege Year 5's third season, is now available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

The new season brings innovation with the addition of Sam Fisher from the Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell saga as a new operator, a rework of the Chalet map, an improvement of the ping system and several other key updates.

Folks who own the Year 5 Pass can play with Zero aka Sam Fisher immediately, while others can unlock him with Renown or R6 Credits starting September 17. 

New seasonal content, including the Chalet map rework, is available for free to all players. Year 5 Season 3 also marks the arrival of the Battle Pass, available now through October 19.

New operator - Sam Fisher

Sam Fisher is equipped with a new gadget called the Argus Launcher, a two-way drill camera. The cameras are launched to pierce soft or reinforced walls, windows and hatches, and can stick to any surface. 

The attacker can rotate the camera to see the other side of the wall and each camera is equipped with one laser charge, used to deal damage to defenders or destroy gadgets. Sam Fisher also comes with his unique weapons, the SC3000K and Karambit.

In addition to the new operator, players can explore the newly reworked Chalet map. Among other new features, the first and the second floors have been improved and the roof is now traversable.

Objectives have been the focus of this rework, with a hallway added to improve rotation in the Basement, and the Trophy site has been switched for a new one in Dining.

Additional game updates include: 

  • Ping 2.0
  • Map Ban
  • New Secondary Gadget: The Hard Breach Charge
  • New Optics and Sights Colors
  • New Reinforcement Pool
