Last edited by Big N. Strauss ; 9 Oct, pm. UbiYubble why do the patch notes say the maps will rotate monthly but two months later there's been no rotation? Last edited by UbiMorning ; 20 Oct, am. I had not seen this blog post which I assume overwrites the patch notes that came out first.

I can't speak on behalf of Captain Spanky T. Kirk, but I have to ask what was wrong with having the 20 maps in from the previous season?
Barring plane I miss all the others that were out and the current 14 gets boring quite fast. I believe you should keep all 20 or 22 maps available in casual. If the goal of shrinking the map pool was for players to learn the maps better, why not just do that in the unranked mode? Since that is meant to be a safe place to learn ranked gameplay better.
Let casual just be hands off and leave all the maps in there. Originally posted by UbiMorning :.Year 4 Season 4 revives the fun times while exploring a new Kenya-India connection. Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege receives its Year 4 Season 4 update in the months ahead, rounding its annual roadmap of content. Dropping in hot after Operation Ember Risethe coming season brings a fresh duo of playable Operators alongside a map rework. Exploring new counterterrorism units while revisiting the Hong Kong-based playground, it's a promising wrap to a vibrant year for Rainbow Six Siege.
We've wrapped up all the Year 4 Season 4 details so far. Ubisoft's hit shooter is hotter than ever, touting tense tactical gameplay, and regular free updates. With millions of players inRainbow Six isn't slowing down. Rainbow Six Siege Year 4 Season 4 retains Ubisoft's well-established seasonal template, shining the spotlight on two recruits. New playable Operators assume attacker and defender roles, accompanied by high-tech gadgets to shake up the multiplayer meta.
Goodbye Plane and House, Rainbow Six Siege is lowering the ranked map pool to just nine maps
New Kenyan and Indian Operators are scheduled to further diversify the roster, outlined via the Year 4 roadmap. Ubisoft is yet to detail either Operator beyond nationalities, though reputable leaks provide an early glimpse of internal plans.
Komora states "Jager will have competition" for Season 4, indicative of a new anti-projectile defender. While DLC has dropped new tools for hard-breaching, intelligence, and traps, the ADS currently remains king against throwables. It's unclear whether Year 4 Season 4 will recycle existing weaponry, emerging a contentious topic in Ubisoft has shifted its focus away from licensing and developing weaponry, now with two seasons failing to expand the arsenal.
Further additions haven't been ruled out but keep hopes tempered. Year 4 Season 4 may also see our long-awaited Proximity Alarm secondary gadget hit the scene, referenced both via in-game files and promotional assets. The deployable is expected to hook onto door frames, alerting of passing players with an audible sound. We've also heard work is underway on fire countermeasures, although status remains unclear at this time.
Wrapping up Ubisoft's lineup of Year 4 maps, Theme Park is the latest on track for an extensive rework. Two years since its Operation Blood Orchid debut, Season 4 sets out for a revisit with various refinements to improve competitive play.
Rainbow Six Siege Year 4: operators, release date, roadmap – all the latest details
The refresh primarily sets out to carve new sightlines to improve attacker-defender encounters, while balancing lighting. But then you get the maze that's happening to the side with Gargoyles," said Karpazis. Theme Park is a map that's super, super dark in some places, super-bright in some places.
Kind of averaging it out so that it's easier for players to recognize what's happening.Rainbow Six Siege Year 4 is bearing down on us with the promise of another eight meta-defining operators, new maps, CTUs, and plenty more.
After last year kicked off with the limited time PvE event, Outbreak, there is also a slim chance that Year 4 will deliver more than new gadgets and guns. Interestingly, we heard about Outbreak and the roadmap for last year long before its release date — there was even a lengthy ARG to build hype for the zombie-slaying game mode.
Ubisoft Montreal released their Year 4 roadmap at the Six Invitationalbut only released the nationalities of the upcoming ops and additional details such as what kind of map to expect each season. We no know everything about six of the Year 4 operators, but there is no information on the gadgets of the Season 4 ops from Kenya and India. In addition to all of this, there are still some map reworks to look forward to, heaps of operators reworks, seasonal events that will add a lot more variety to each few months, and a some other details like changes to team killing and gadgets.
There are even reworks to secondary gadgets, with the Deployable Shield now being able to attach to the walls and the Breach Charge now allowing for hot breaches. Here is everything we know about Rainbow Six Siege Year 4, from new gadgets to when you can expect an official announcement. Here is how each season will play out:. There will be only one new map across the new year, but there are also plenty of planned operator reworks to look forward to.
Each new year of Rainbow Six Siege promises to add eight new operators across four seasons and counter terrorist units, most of which are based on real-life special forces teams like the GIGR and GROM.
The two Australian operators — attacker Gridlock and defender Mozzie — are now live in-game. Gridlock provides the attacking team with spike traps that can help secure flanks, while Mozzie can hijack drones and use them to aid the defending side.
Her gadget is the HEL, a glove attachment that can cloak her from cameras and reduce the noise she makes for a short period of time. This makes Nokk an exceptional roamer and flanker on attack. We recommend taking the shotgun as a primary as Warden can bring the SMG12 as a secondary.
Neither of the Rainbow Six Siege Operation Phantom Sight operators has had a massive impact on the meta, but both make interesting flex operators. Her G8A1 LMG is an excellent tool for dealing damage over prolonged firefights, while her Supernova shotgun is great if you plan on using the Garra Hook to surprise foes or break open hatches. Goyo can bring three Volcan Shields as his main gadget. These look like Deployable Shields from the front, but hide an explosive canister and fuel container that deals damage to nearby operators when shot and spreads a deadly fire that burns for 12 seconds.
Goyo can take either the Vector. Other changes arrive with Ember Rise, such as the reintroduction of Pilot Program skinsa reduction in the map pool for ranked that removes Hereford, Theme Park, and Fortressand tougher leave penalties in ranked.

AMD Ryzen 7 - 8 cores, 16 threads, bargain price.This all starts with operation Burnt Horizonwhich adds a new map, and two new operators. But much more is in store for Year 4, and Ubisoft has detailed it all in a new developer diary.
To start with, the developer confirmed the nationality of the remaining Year 4 operators, coming in seasons two, three, and four. Unlike Burnt Horizon, however, none of them are bringing new maps.
Instead, all remaining seasons in Year 4 will come with reworks of existing maps. Season two adds an American, and Danish operators, along with a Kafe rework. Season three expands the roster with operators from Mexico, and Peru and updates the Kanal map. Finally, season four has Kenyan, and Indian operators, and a Theme Park rework. Beyond that, this year will expand Rainbow Six Siege is several major areas. Ubisoft wants to invest more in limited-time events, using them to explore new mechanics and themes.
Debuting with the new season one operators will be a new anti-team killing system that reflects damage done to teammates onto the offender. This is part of the work the dedicated community team will be implementing over the course of the coming months, with more features and initiatives like this planned.
The developer is also looking to improve the on-boarding experience for new players. A first step towards that goal is the introduction of a newcomer playlist designed for players below level The playlist will only feature the Bomb game mode, and will be limited to just three maps: Bank, Consulate, and Chalet.
The action phase will now last three minutes and thirty seconds instead of four.
Rainbow Six Siege Year 4 Season 4: Everything We Know
The new casual will also allow attackers to pick their spawn points — just like in ranked. For ranked, the limited-time pick and ban system, which has proven very popular, will be a permanent option.Most Black Ice In One Alpha Pack Opening Ever?!? - Rainbow Six Siege
All players can then unlock the Operators with Renown or R6 Credits after the exclusive period ends. Prisma projects holograms identical to Alibi in an idle position. To add an element of surprise, Prisma conceals the identity of any Defender who ventures outside. Any bullet, melee, or explosives damages Prisma, and will shoot through the hologram. Be careful not to stand too close. Maestro uses a remote-controlled turret firing high-energy laser beams.
Once affixed to the floor or wall, Maestro can remote-surveil and provide overwatch in a location through the swivel-mounted camera. When the camera device breaks open to fire a laser beam the core is exposed to damage.
Otherwise, the turret is unaffected by bullets and melee. Lastly, Evil Eye can see through smoke. Operation Para Bellum launches our 20th map: a luxurious Tuscan villa. No riches were spared to offer our most tactical map to date. The house provides diverse options with its wide staircases, narrow tunnels, and secret hatches. The illusion of cover haunts whoever sets foot in the villa.
The land belongs to the Vinciguerra, a dangerous crime family known for their smuggling activities. The house is their retreat, where they lead a lavish lifestyle and collect rare art pieces. Now we catch the villa in a snapshot of time: Vinciguerras are burning documents and transporting their holdings before the big raid. We are honored to grant an elite set for Thatcher, our most decorated Operator. Inspired by the operation that made the S. In Operation Para Bellum, we celebrate the Italian artisanship of weapon fabbrikas.
Once unlocked, the seasonal weapon skins can be applied on all available weapons until the end of the Season. Our Level Artists and Designers were asked, three years later, to revisit Clubhouse and bring it to new heights. They were pumped to step up to the plate, now armed with years of know-how and a series of advanced tools. Their mission was to improve the course of the map by fixing what forced Defenders into high-risk low-reward situations.
First, our Designers added a connector between the bedroom and the cash room to open up the flow of the map. Defenders can now move between buildings on the second floor without being forced to go outside. The objective locations were also targeted for balancing.
The Designers added a staircase in the garage, subdivided the bar, added a bathroom to sneak past the bar, and removed some hatches on the rooftop so that players could circulate more freely. Second, Designers monitored closely how the community adopted the map through the years with the arrival of new gadgets. Plus, it made them see their creations anew. Lastly, the map buff was the perfect opportunity for the Artists to polish their initial work from three years ago; a rare treat.With the launch of Burnt Horizon, Siege embarks on its fourth year of constant improvements — beginning with the addition of Australia finally.
For example, learning Outback is easier than ever thanks to distinctive colouring on the walls. Where other maps have rooms that meld together, Outback is defined by its colours. If the walls are green you're in the restaurant — be mindful of the camera above the giant shark.
If they're blue, the garage is a quick and easy breach area for attackers. It's a bit prone to run-outs — where defenders exit the building to get surprise frags on attackers — and vulnerable to a few cheeky peeks, but it's not a huge concern.
It's not a map like Kanal, with breakable windows that you need to scan at the start of each round, so once you learn where to look, you can stay safe. Whether it's competitively viable remains to be seen, but with around the same square-metre-age as Border — another two-storey affair — it feels possible that we'll see it in action in the Pro League. Whether the new operators are competitively viable is another question.
Mozzie, the defender, feels like he should be popular all around. His unique gadget sees him shooting 'Pests', electronic devices used to hack attacker drones. Any drones hacked — including Twitch drones — are his to do with as he pleases. Rainbow Six Siege is an information game first and foremost.
When you can die quickly to shots through walls, knowing more than your opponent is a huge deal. So hacking drones is a two-fold boon for the defenders. Not only are attackers denied a valuable information resource, but Mozzie's team gets extra eyes too. You can place those drones wherever you like once captured, and Attackers can't tell if they're good or bad until they see them in action, so if you can successfully catch three drones, you'll have three new mobile cameras. He's middle of the road in terms of armour and speed, which means he's an anchor.
If he was a bit faster on his feet, you could envision him leaving the site to go roaming — especially if the Attackers manage to dodge his Pests — but as a camera operator, he's better off staying near the objectives.
Gridlock is the complete opposite. Her Trax Stingers make her a fantastic anti-roamer — she can carpet a hallway in spike strips that deal a considerable amount of damage per tick — but her utility as a counter-retake operator is where she's at her best. The Trax Stingers take some time to deploy as they spread out from their source, but once in place, they make it extremely difficult to re-enter the bombsite.
They slow defenders, deal damage and make noise. If you storm the site, throw stingers at the entryways and then plant, defenders will have a very tough time getting back in to stop the defuse. As a one-speed three-armour operator she can wear a decent amount of damage too, but you'll need to coordinate with your teammates to get the most out of her.
The quick site rush won't really work with her, although she can throw her Stingers a bit late after a rush strategy to further slow the defenders down on the retake.
With a great map and fantastic operators who don't feel overpowered out of the gate, Burnt Horizon is a brilliant start for Year 4. It's not as glamorous as brilliant new operators or a shiny dusty? The first step in the right direction was getting rid of the "Starter Edition" and lowering the price of the regular game.
Siege is in a tricky spot because hackers can do devastating things in a game with high lethality, so going free-to-play isn't necessarily the right move for it.Hold onto your seats, Operation Shifting Tides is rising from the depths.
Its owner, Kalijoins Six as the new Attacker. One of her best agents, Wamaiis also coming aboard as the new Defender. These two Operators are unlike any that have come before and bring their particular talents to the roster. With them, expect a newly reworked Theme Park to surface, as well as a few other features worthy of note. You will find more details on these updates in the full Patch Notes below. Yet the results are undeniable, and the soldiers she trains remain unmatched on the field His thought processes are fascinating, and the more I speak to him the more I find myself drawn into his world, deep underwater and free of all distractions The LV is not your typical explosive.

These are not its main functions, however. Its role is to destroy gadgets with a light explosion within a set radius. When used on a breakable wall, it will create a hole slightly smaller than what the sniper rifle would do. When shot at a reinforced wall, however, it simply lodges in surface. In either case, it destroys all gadgets on both sides of breakable and reinforced surfaces. This makes it especially effective when played in tandem with a hard breach Operator like Thermite or Hibana.
Where his colleagues can disable and destroy, he redirects. It sticks to surfaces and waits. Make sure to place them wisely, as they can be destroyed with a single hit should they be spotted.
Did you miss Theme Park? It might not look like it at first glance, but there are some massive changes coming. First, lines of sight have been constricted to prevent most spawn peeks. Second, Rail Overlook and Lift Car, as well as their ramps, have been removed. Instead, the East and West sections of the building have been brought closer together, with Yellow Corridor previously named Cafe Corridor and Bunk connected to Office and Initiation Room through breakable walls.
Inside the building, there are a few things to notice, which mostly involve the East section. Check out all these changes and more on the test server, and feel free to submit your feedback on R6 Fix.
