Hello PlayStation community, we at Ubisoft are super excited today to be able to bring you the latest details on what we will be bringing to your favourite tactical team-based action game into the next generation.
Finally, we can say that a native PS5 version of Rainbow Six Siege will be available December 1, kicking off alongside Year 5 Season 4! We are excited to share more information on an enhanced Rainbow Six experience for all PS5 players.
Graphics and Performance on PS5
PS5 players will be able to experience the excitement of Rainbow Six Siege with the highest graphical enhancements that the game has to offer on consoles. These enhancements will offer multiple options for prioritizing either performance or resolution, granted players are equipped with a compatible device:
- Performance Mode: Target 120 fps with 4k Dynamic Resolution Scaling
- Resolution Mode: Target 60 fps with 4k Resolution
- Activity Card support for Ranked, Unranked, Newcomer, Quick Match, & Events so players can dive into the game faster
The graphical power of the PlayStation 5 enables better lighting and depth of field improvements, especially on long distance. Get ready to literally see your favorite map in a new light, and uncover new levels of detail.
Performance mode, which targets 120 frames per second, makes Siege gameplay smoother than ever. Siege’s stable FPS holds up even under incredible duress, like breach charges that cause destructive explosions. 120 fps enhancements are dependent on your TV, so look into those details to get the most out of the game.
Thanks to the PS5’s SSD, players can jump into the game faster than before and start playing. The map loading time has never been so short, allowing you to quickly jump from your operator selection to the preparation phase.
DualSense Wireless Controller
However the PS5 Rainbow Six Siege experience is not limited to visual enhancements. The dev team has embraced the new DualSense wireless controller, with its haptic feedback and adaptive triggers, for better immersion and improved reflexes in high-stakes gunfights.
Thanks to the DualSense controller’s adaptive triggers, squeezing the R2 trigger emulates the resistance of an actual trigger, offering a unique feel for each weapon category and shooting gadget. For example, adaptive trigger resistance is light and quick for pistols, and heavier for bigger, powerful weapons like light machine guns. Players will also be able to feel the difference between single fire and full-automatic for full immersion.
In addition, thanks to the haptic feedback players will sense impact like never before. Dynamic and immersive, haptic feedback reacts with the environment. Weapons, explosions, gadgets and so on will provide feedback directly in the player’s hands.
Transitioning to PS5
If you currently own a copy of Rainbow Six Siege on PS4 and plan to acquire a PS5, you will be able to upgrade your game at no additional cost. All players will be able to keep their progression and in-game items when transitioning between consoles. Owners of physical game copies can only upgrade at no extra cost if they have a PlayStation 5 console with a disc drive.
Cross-play is also available for players gaming on PS4 and PS5, and they will be able to face one another whether playing on a PS4 or PS5.
Don’t miss out on the immersive power PS5 offers with 120fps, 4K resolution, faster loading, and immersive DualSense controller features. Join the Rainbow Six team on PS5 on December 1, and get ready to enjoy more updates in the future.
