Sweden’s Six Major started on Monday for the world’s football elite. Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege. And as with every big event of the professional circle for the title of Ubisoft, The studio took the opportunity to describe the next season with the title “High Caliber” in detail. This fourth season in Year 6 of the game, or more simply Y6S4, will bring a new operator, map redesign and some new balancing features within a month.. The whole thing can be seen in the presentation video that the developer posted on his YouTube channel.
Right from the green hills of Ireland, Thorn will join the ranks of the defenders.. Her four older brothers made life difficult for her as a child, so she built a strong character and never gives up. This led her to join the mounted police and later join the ranks of the Rainbow.
There she developed in partnership with Mira, an explosive defense device. The “Razorbloom Shell” is a device that can stick to any surface in the game. If an attacker passes nearby, a loud explosion is triggered, capable of knocking down the less protected Operator in one fell swoop.. Fortunately, you can respond with a little downtime before detonation. If the player’s reflexes are good enough, the agent can exit or pass through the danger zone, or even shoot the device to destroy it.
Thorn will bring an unprecedented weapon, the first in siege for over two years. This is the UZK50GI, a slow submachine gun with considerable performance with its .50 caliber cartridges.. Those who wish can prefer the M870 shotgun, which has already been seen at Bandit and Jäger. As a handgun, the Irish woman can choose between a 1911 Tacops pistol, which Maverick is already using, or the automatic C-75 from Vigil and Kali. Eventually, with barbed wire or an extendable shield, Thorn will allow him to further strengthen a position of his choice to increase the effectiveness of his traps.
The great return of the Australian bush
Not liked by the game since its release, the Outback map will rise from the ashes in the high caliber season. In fact, the developers at Ubisoft have redesigned the Australian Roadhouse with the main aim of making it easier to get around. Quite unanimously among the players, the level was criticized quite quickly because of its rough side. Within a month, this new version therefore presents less winding corridors and less cluttered decors with unnecessary details..
Bomb sites will also gain defense potential, with access routes that are easier to protect.. For this purpose, windows were removed and intermediate doors were added. The garage and dining room, the two largest open spaces inside the building, have also been made smaller in order to streamline the action. Finally, the central terrace that separates the piano room from the mezzanine floor of the restaurant is covered and closed, making it easier to defend. Outback has so far been a map that has often seen the attacking team at an advantage, and Ubisoft appears to have been working on finding a better balance between the battles..
One heroine falls, another gets up
Valkyrie has become a staple food over the years siege. Its black eyes, which can be placed anywhere, have made it an important surveillance object for defenders. But from the “high caliber” season onwards, all drones and cameras lose their connection and become unusable if they are outside a building for more than ten seconds.. Valkyrie will therefore no longer be able to install a gadget outside to monitor access, which was previously considered its main strength. Also, attacking players will be forced to bring their drones onto the field during the prep phase if some prefer to leave them outside to pick them up at the start of the action phase.
The loss of performance by the American operator is somewhat offset by a long awaited improvement on Finka. His thrust The adrenaline rush that can come in handy in reviving downcast allies has never worked on itself. “High Caliber” is finally correcting the shot and will allow the Russian to recover from an injury if he still has at least one charge of his suitability.
The opinion of (almost) all players counts
Since almost its inception, Rainbow Six Siege enables players to provide Ubisoft with detailed feedback on their experience. The main tool in this sense is the test server, which is only available on PC but accessible to anyone with any copy of the game, even on the console. So far, this server showed with one to several months in advance which functionalities the developers wanted to integrate into the title, whether they are finished or are still in development. But that could be frustrating, because if you just wanted to discover a new operator or a new card, you had to deal with one too Style of play
Ubisoft will therefore split the seasons of the test server from high caliber into three different periods. The first part will be devoted to the expected arrival of the contents of the public seasons, the second to the future changes planned for balancing, and the last to the more experimental modifications.. In this way, the studio gives the users of the test server the choice to stop using it for a season once its Style of play too far from the public servers for their taste.
At the same time, the R6Fix portal, which is dedicated to reporting various technical problems in the game, will soon benefit from a complete revision in version 2.0 to gain efficiency and clarity. Among the new features, we particularly mention the possibility for developers to interact directly with the players via a forum-like messaging system. But also a reward system for those who make the most relevant and regular returns that Ubisoft wants to provide over the next year. Last but not least, the portal will be provided in the form of a mobile application to facilitate access for console gamers.
Despite some improvements over time SKIN from siege hasn’t changed much since the game was released in December 2015. And with content being added quarterly to a game nearly six years old, the UI needed to be updated well. This will be done in the coming season, since “High Caliber” is inaugurated SKIN
The key points of this redesign are in greater clarity on each operator’s inventory page, clearer symbols during contextual animations and a brand new compass. Much more detailed than the old one, this one will show everyone pings Allies by classifying them by direction but also by altitude. A three tier system makes it easy to find a point of interest below, above, or on the same floor as the player.
The HUD also benefits from a special options menu where any item that can be displayed on the screen can be enabled or disabled at will.. After all, those who wish will have a choice of the shade that will be permanently assigned to each team, ally or enemy. In addition to the game’s usual blues and oranges, there is red, and Ubisoft promises to bring new colors in the future. In order to, The studio continues to increase the accessibility of its title to those struggling to distinguish colors.
The à la carte look
A draft of the new operator personalization system was presented last season. For example, players could combine one character’s outfit with another’s helmet. But there was still a lack of mixing the elite appearances with the rest of the cosmetics. High Caliber allows agents to be fully customized by combining these unique elements with more classic objects. Backgrounds, costumes, headgear, and victory animations can be combined in any way to create new character cards.
No new elite set was mentioned during the video. But the season is likely to start on public servers within two to four weeks, and such an announcement could be made by then.
And tenderness …?
The theme that the players of. enthusiastic siege, there is still toxicity in the game and the methods Ubisoft uses to combat it. However, this aspect of the title was absolutely not addressed in the presentation this Monday.. And that despite the strong promises made by the developer at the beginning of the year. An absence that, despite the studio’s sometimes daring, sometimes promising novelties, could be terrifying of the FPS’s sixth anniversary.
