Ubisoft has confirmed that the free PlayStation 5 upgrade for Rainbow Six: Siege will arrive next on 1st December 2020 alongside Season 4, which is part of its fifth year of content. Yes, it's been chugging along for quite some time now. All of your progress and in-game items will carry over into the next-gen version, with support for PlayStation 4 and PS5 players to play with each other included.
Rainbow Six: Siege will support two different modes on PS5, each prioritising the usual things. A performance mode targets 120 frames-per-second at a dynamic 4K resolution while resolution mode runs at 60 frames-per-second at what appears to be native 4K. The game will also support PS5's Activity Cards, allowing you to select ranked, unranked, newcomer, quick match, and event playlists right from the system's main menu. "The graphical power of the PlayStation 5 enables better lighting and depth of field improvements, especially on long distance. Get ready to literally see your favorite map in a new light, and uncover new levels of detail."
Then there's the DualSense controller, which will simulate the pulling of a trigger across different weapon types. "For example, adaptive trigger resistance is light and quick for pistols, and heavier for bigger, powerful weapons like light machine guns. Players will also be able to feel the difference between single fire and full-automatic for full immersion." Meanwhile, haptic feedback is designed to activate when explosions and gadgets are involved.
