By far, one of the most popular first-person shooter game has to be Rainbow Six Siege, and it has been there for over five years. Still, Ubisoft is making an effort to make the game even better and implement new features like Crossplay and Cross-Progression.
Crossplay is aggressively being implemented by almost all game developers now and Ubisoft is one of them. Almost all games announced at its E3 showcase will have the feature across all platforms, however, Rainbow Six Siege will bring it in two phases: first, PC/Cloud crossplay when Siege launches on Stadia on June 30 whereas Xbox/PlayStation crossplay will be arriving in early 2022.
Here’s the official announcement:
Over 70 million people have played Rainbow Six Siege since its launch over five years ago, and soon, more of those players will be able to play together than ever before. On June 30, Rainbow Six Siege will launch on Stadia. From this date, players on PC, Stadia, and Amazon Luna will be able to queue for matches together and have unified account progression across those platforms with the launch of crossplay and cross-progression on PC and cloud-based platforms. Then, in early 2022, players on Xbox and PlayStation platforms will be able to team up and face off as crossplay comes to consoles, and cross-progression launches across all platforms.
Ubisoft also shred some lights on the new developments in the game and dropped a new animated trailer for Thunderbird. So, the new Defender will be coming as part of Year 6, Season 2, entitled Operation North Star:
The next season of Rainbow Six Siege — North Star — is slated to launch on June 14 and you can read all about it in our North Star Operator and Map Guide. It introduces a new Operator named Thunderbird who can deploy static gadgets called Kóna Stations. Any player (ally or enemy) standing next to them can consume their charge to heal themselves. The charge comes back to the device with a cooldown.
It can overheal the targeted player up to 120 HP and even revive a player down but not out. Thunderbird hails from the Nakoda First Nation of the northern prairies of North America; learn more about her in this anime short that debuted during Ubisoft Forward.
