Ubisoft Montreal has released a new trailer for Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege, which shows new operator Sam Fisher aka Zero arriving with the new Season just recently. It is a cute animated trailer and Year 5 Pass owners can play as Zero right now as part of Operation Shadow Legacy.
All owners of the game on current consoles will be able to get the respective next-gen version on the same family of devices at no additional cost and keep their game progress and content. In addition, the game will be cross-gen, which means that players of the next-generation consoles will be able to play with those of the current consoles while remaining in the same console family.
More importantly, the developer has confirmed that Rainbow Six Siege will release on the Xbox Series X and PS5 later this year. In addition to supporting 4K resolution, it will also run at 120 FPS.
A release date has not yet been provided for the PS5 and Xbox Series X versions, but they should be available shortly after their respective console launches, as Ubisoft has confirmed 2020 as the launch window.
Operation Shadow Legacy is also available now. This new season brings a lot of new features along with many other important updates: Sam Fisher from the Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell saga comes as a new operator, a revision of the chalet map and an improvement to the ping system is also added. You can check the launch trailer of Shadow Legacy below.
Rainbow Six Siege is available on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
