Rainbow Six Siege Will be a Free Upgrade on PS5 and Xbox Series X, Aiming to Run at 4K/120fps

Rainbow Six Siege players on console will be able to seamlessly transition to next-gen platforms with upgrades rolling out before the end of 2020.

We’ve known for quite some time now that Rainbow Six Siege would be making the transition to the PS5 and Xbox Series X later this year when each console released, but now, we have more details on Ubisoft’s plans for the future versions of the popular multiplayer shooter.

As part of today’s Ubisoft Forward, the team behind Rainbow Six Siege laid out its what it intends to do once the PS5 and Xbox Series X arrive. For starters, those who have already purchased the game on PS4 and Xbox One will be able to freely upgrade to the next-gen platforms free of charge. Considering how nebulous this upgrade plan has been for the video game industry at large as next-gen approaches, it’s nice to see that Ubisoft won’t be making existing players pay more money once again.

Perhaps most notably, though, Ubisoft said that it’s looking to capitalize on the power of the PS5 and Xbox Series X in some truly serious ways. Rainbow Six Siege is said to be targeting a 4K resolution and a staggering 120 frames per second across both new platforms, which is awesome, to say the least. While no specific launch or upgrade date for this has been given just yet, Ubisoft says it does intend to add these new features before the end of 2020.

As for the immediate future of Rainbow Six Siege, the game’s latest event, Operation: Shadow Legacy, just kicked off today and it adds Sam Fisher (AKA Zero) to the game’s roster.
