Today, Ubisoft announced the release of Crimson Heist, the first season of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege Year 6, on PlayStation 4 & 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X | S, and PC. The addition of the Argentinian operator Flores, a rework of the Border map, and the all-new Gonne-6 secondary weapon are just some of the new features accompanying this update.
Year 6 Season 1 includes a brand-new Battle Pass with 100 tiers and 131 rewards that will be available until May 25. All players will have access to the free track and those who purchase the battle pass for 1200 R6 Credits will be able to earn extra rewards through the premium track. The Premium Battle Pass will provide the new operator Flores to players immediately making him playable right away, while others will have to wait until March 30 to unlock him with Renown or R6 Credits. On the other hand, seasonal content such as the new weapons and map rework will be available to all players for free right now.
Flores is equipped with a remote-controlled explosive device that can make its way around the map and detonate on command or after its timer expires. Unlike regular camera drones, this gadget cannot stop moving or slow down making it more challenging for players to pull off the perfect explosion. As for the adjustments made to the Boundary map, an interior balcony near the East staircase has been added along with an external staircase. The number of entry points and destructible walls have also been reduced which will work in favor of the defenders.
Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege will be available for free from March 18 till March 25 on consoles and PC, however, Steam players will only have until March 21. During this period, the game will be heavily discounted by up to 70% depending on your version and platform of choice.
