Ubisoft has announced that Crimson Heist, the first season of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege Year 6, is now available on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and PC. This new season brings innovations with the addition of the Argentinian operator Flores, the Border map rework, the new Gonne-6 secondary weapon and the Match Replay beta, amongst other updates.
Additionally, players will be able to play Rainbow Six Siege and Crimson Heist for free from 18 March to 25 March 2021. However, the free week ends on 21 March 2021 for Steam users.
Year 6 Season 1 comes with a brand-new Battle Pass, including 100 tiers and 131 rewards, available until 25 May 2021. The Battle Pass includes a free and a Premium track available for 1200 R6 Credits. For the first time in Rainbow Six Siege history, the Premium Battle Pass will include the new operator Flores.
Owners of the Premium Battle Pass can play with Flores immediately, while other players can unlock him with Renown or R6 Credits starting from 30 March 2021. New seasonal content including the Border map rework, Match Replay Beta, and the Gonne-6 are available right now for free and for all players.
In Crimson Heist, players will discover a brand-new attacker: Flores. Equipped with an original gadget called the RCE – Ratero Charge, Flores can deploy a remote-controlled explosive device at his feet and drive it through the map during a limited period of time until it detonates in a powerful explosion. Flores is armed with an AR33 or an SR-25 as a primary weapon and a GSH-18 as a secondary weapon.
In addition to the new operator, players will have access to a reimagined Border map, which has been newly reworked with an interior balcony connecting the East staircase to the Break room. The bathroom has also been extended to be connected to the Tellers. Players will play in a new challenging environment with some entries blocked, a reduced number of destructible walls and an additional outside staircase.
