Rainbow Six Siege Update Released, Here's What's New

Rainbow Six Siege players have now gotten their first post-Operation patch following the release of Operation Ember Rise. That Operation added two new Operators to the game, and this follow-up patch tweaks one of the new characters to resolve a griefing problem which made itself evident after the Operation’s release. Various other bugs have also been resolved.

Ubisoft announced the release of the update which arrived on the PC platform after some brief maintenance. At the time, a console update was said to be coming shortly afterwards.

The patch notes for this update began with one of the game’s newest characters. Goyo is one of the new Operators introduced in the latest Operation, but the character’s unique gadget was causing problems that have now been resolved.

You can see the full patch notes below to take note of everything that’s been changed.
