A 4K-capable television may be necessary to take advantage of the enhanced visuals. But whether you have the latest TV or not, the game will upscale to 4K and 120 FPS on both next-gen systems. This will make the game a smoother, more visually arresting experience–a necessity when playing Rainbow Six Siege, which requires highly precise, twitch-based coordination. Ubisoft also confirmed that the next-gen upgrade will be free of charge so long as you have the digital version of Rainbow Six Siege.
In addition to announcing the visual enhancement, Ubisoft announced that Rainbow Six Siege’s Shadow Legacy update is now live. The update adds Splinter Cell‘s Sam Fisher as the operator nicknamed Zero, as well as new gadgets and an overhauled ping system, among other things.
A lot of news dropped during the September edition of Ubisoft Forward. This includes a release date for the newly renamed Immortals: Fenyx Rising, confirmation that both Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time and Scott Pilgram vs. The World: The Game are coming back, the reveal of Riders Republic from the Steep developers, a Far Cry VR experience, and more.
