Hello gaming geeks and peeps, welcome to MediaScrolls, and today in this article, we are going to talk about the videogame Rainbow Six Siege and the latest update which it has received quite recently. Along with that, we are also going to talk about its patch notes in detail and what necessary changes and upgrades have the Tom Clancy franchise brought to the table this time.
Battle-Royale multiplayer shooting games are the new pinch of the current pop culture and the gaming community. Multiplayer videogames like PUBG, Fortnite, Call of Duty have made themselves a brand new and unique identity in the genre and is almost every teenager’s talk of the town. Some(games like PUBG and Call of Duty) have also branched out to the mobile platforms, which have enhanced their global recognition and estimation. In contrast, others(games like Fortnite) have stuck to their norms of treading in the direction of desktops, laptops, and consoles.
Rainbow Six Siege is one of such games which is predominantly sticking to its desktop roots. It is one of the several titles under the Tom Clancy franchise and has been developed and published by none other than Ubisoft.
The game was released worldwide for Windows, PlayStation, and Xbox platforms. The title has established a separate class and identity for itself in the gaming genre and has received some overwhelming responses from gamers and various community bodies. The very aspect of its gameplay makes it more exciting and reachable to a vast majority of its audiences.
But unlike any other game, feedback from the gamers shares equal importance as the development and launch of the game. Feedbacks serve as a response to the various kinds of problems present in the game.
Most of those problems in the modern multiplayer battle-royale games are bugs and glitches, which sometimes causes the game and its characters to malfunction, and hence the player suffers the consequences. To curb such incidents from happening, developers release updates based on the feedback that they have received. A similar update has come in for the current Rainbow Six Siege title which hopefully overcomes all such troublesome issues that have previously been complained about.
The update patch version is 3.3 and was injected into the game servers yesterday by putting the servers on standby for a brief 30-minute maintenance period. The brand new update for Rainbow Six Siege is for the PlayStation, PC, and Xbox platforms. The full patch notes are included in this article.
The update has addressed a lot of issues that have been previously reported. The new update includes reducing the no. of explosive ticks in Ace’s Selma Aqua Breacher, Glaz’s vision recovery and movement restrictions have been decreased, the ITA 12S shotgun can be used as a secondary weapon for Frost,
the damage of ACS12 and TCSG12 shotguns have been increased, the ballistic shields can be changed to affect the guard breaks, etc. In other departments, the patch addresses on improving the chat filter system, curbing the lighting problems on the first floor of the bar in Chalet, and defenders not having to spawn on top of each other when roaming on the second floor of the master bedroom on Chalet.
