The first season of Rainbow Six Siege Year 6, known as Crimson Heist, is now available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
“The 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,” Ubisoft says.
What’s new in Year 6 Season 1?
Year 6 Season 1 comes with a brand-new Battle Pass, including 100 tiers and 131 rewards, available until May 24. 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 March 30. 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.
