It means existing players of Ubisoft’s hugely popular competitive FPS will be able to get the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X and S version at no extra cost when upgrading within the same family of consoles.
The next-gen versions run at up to 120 frames per second and 4K resolution, Ubisoft added.
The news comes as Rainbow Six Siege’s Operation Shadow Legacy season kicks off. This is the one that adds Splinter Cell’s Sam Fisher as a playable operator. Fisher is available to year five pass holders now, whereas all other players can unlock him one week later with Renown or R6 credits.

Democratic norms are being stress-tested all over the world, and the past few years have thrown up all kinds of questions we didn't know needed clarifying – how long is too long for a parliamentary prorogation? How far should politicians be allowed to intervene in court cases? To monitor these issues as closely as we have in the past we need your support, so please consider donating to The Climax News Room.
