Rainbow Six Siege has received a major new update on Steam, Xbox, PlayStation and PC.

The Crystal Guard update will go live alongside a period of server downtime across all platforms.

It will kick off on PC from 3pm BST, followed by Xbox platforms from 3pm and finally on PlayStation from 4pm to 5pm BST UK time.

The Rainbow Six Siege update weighs in at a whopping 24 GB on Ubisoft Connect, but only 12 GB on Steam.

On Xbox Series X, Xbox One, and PS4, fans will need to download a 20GB update. Surprisingly, though, the PS5 update is only 16GB.

Needless to say, the update brings dozens of changes across all platforms and introduces a new operator called Croatia.

“Croatia bringing expertise to Nighthaven with its quick wits and unabashed enthusiasm for 1960s sci-fi movies,” reads a Ubisoft statement.

“This season is packed with a plethora of updates, including changes to Operator armor and DBNO scores, as well as balancing for Twitch, IQ, Mute, and Fuze.

“Players also have a new way to customize Elite uniforms.”
