Throughout its four-year lifespan, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege angered its fans a couple of times. Overall, however, it has been a smooth experience and has seen fruitful expansions. This has been reflected by overwhelmingly positive reviews on Steam.
Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege — Operation Ember Rise
Just shortly after the free week concludes, in September, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege will receive a major content update: Operation Ember Rise.
Following the trend of Games-as-a-Service (GaaS), Ember Rise will integrate seasonal a battle pass as the game moves forward.
Major Gameplay Changes
More importantly, the Ember Rise expansion will change the meta entirely:
- New operatives Goyo and Amaru will join the already numerous list of operatives to choose from.
- A complete rework of the Kanal map.
- A new Champion rank that starts at 5000 MMR.
- Ranked maps will now number 12 — with Fortress, Hereford Base and Theme Park being excluded while Kanal is included.
- Playing ranked will have a squad MMR restriction — which means that Bronze players will not be able to invite their Diamond or Champion friends.
- A huge amount of quality-of-life (QoL) improvements.
- The introduction of smaller deployable shields in the hands of nine defenders, including the fresh defender Goyo. While some defenders will gain a deployable shield, others will lose it. A variety of gadgets will replace them, including bulletproof cameras, barbed wire, and impact grenades.
- Machine pistols will be buffed in an atypical manner — instead of changing damage stats, they will have a toned-down visual recoil so they can be more effectively handled.
There are dozens of other tweaks to the gameplay and many more will likely come as Ubisoft responds to the player feedback.
