The launch of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege‘s Operation Para Bellum expansion on the game’s technical test server revealed that the shooter is ready for the jump to the latest version of consoles.
The test server’s Operation Para Bellum update brought with it enhancements for PS4 Pro and Xbox One X versions of the game, boosting the resolution up to 1440p and 1728p respectively. The render scale will remain at 50 percent, but publisher Ubisoft reportedly intends to implement a system to dynamically adjust render scaling, based on game performance. The frame rate will remain at 60 frames per second for multiplayer.
Operation Para Bellum is slated to hit the full game on June 5th, introducing two new operators and a new multiplayer map. The operators, both defenders, are named Alibi and Maestro, with Alibi’s Prisma ability allowing her to spawn decoys of herself, and Maestro’s Evil Eye letting him zap unsuspecting targets from a bulletproof camera. The new multiplayer map will have players battle it out inside a Villa on the idyllic Italian countryside.
The update launching in tandem with the expansion brings a host of other changes and improvements to the game, like the new Pick-Ban system, map adjustments, changes to operator speeds, and more. The full list of everything coming in the update and expansion can be found on game’s official website.
The shooter recently hosted a free weekend, in which any player could jump in and check out the tactical experience offered by Rainbow Six Siege. While the free weekend is over, the game’s discounted price is still live until May 28th, letting gamers pick it up for 50 percent off.
