Details surrounding the Rainbow Six Siege Year 5 pass have leaked ahead of schedule, just a day after Ubisoft revealed their brand new 4.2 update for the first-person shooter, and a big change to operators looks likely. 

The game’s developers rolled out their biggest update in quite some time on January 13, marking the unexpected return of Clash after exploits and in-game issues saw the character previously removed.

While there were a change to operators, maps and more included in the patch, details regarding the next major update appear to have slipped through the net as well.

Reddit user ignotusartifex posted a leaked image to the Rainbow Six subreddit on January 13, revealing what appears to be some components included in the next year’s pass – in the form of a ‘new content available’ pop-up in-game.

For those who aren’t aware, the Year 4 Rainbow Six Siege season pass includes seven days early access to eight new operators over the course of 12 months, 600 extra credits, VIP perks such as discounts on cosmetics, uniforms and skins. Essentially, it gives you VIP access to a number of perks.

So, with the Year 4 one very much confirmed by Ubisoft, let’s take a look at what this leaker claims will be included next time around.

YEAR 5 Season Pass CONFIRMED from Rainbow6

As is the case with many of these season passes that have been released so far, the leaked version shows there may be potential changes – some of which the community aren’t too happy about.

One of these tweaks, for example, is that there appears to be two less operators than the year previous, meaning they will potentially be released every four months as opposed to every three.

One user noticed another difference, though. They posted: “Hm, do we no longer get 600 credits when we buy the Season Pass?” While another wrote: “Wondering the same. If not I’ll probably skip the pass this time around. Not much point in paying for a week of early access when I’ll have plenty of renown to buy the new Ops.”

Whether or not this is actually going to be the eventual makeup of the Year 5 season pass remains to be seen, but it’s worth noting that the contents of the image here is unconfirmed by Ubisoft at the time of writing. If that changes, though, we’ll be the first to let you know.

Rainbow Six: Siege is hitting the next-gen PS5 and Xbox Series X consoles on December 1. If you’re looking to make the jump, here’s exactly what you need to do to upgrade. The best part is, it’s totally free.

Every title is trying to make the jump to the PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series X and S consoles. The next generation is here ⁠— just in time for Christmas ⁠— and while grabbing some new games is always high on the list, old favorites shouldn’t be left behind.

If you’ve picked up a copy of Rainbow Six: Siege for the PS4 or Xbox One, you’ll be able to make the jump to the next-gen consoles on December 1. Here’s how you can upgrade.

If you own a copy of Rainbow Six on PS4 or Xbox One, you can upgrade to the PS5 and Xbox Series X consoles for free ⁠— providing that you upgrade to a console in the same family.

That means the upgrade won’t work if you go from the Xbox One to PS5, or the PS4 to the Xbox Series X. Also, if you own a physical version of Rainbow Six, you won’t be able to transfer to discless consoles.

From there, it’s as simple as linking your console to Ubisoft Connect, downloading the game again, and jumping right into the action. Here’s a full step by step list of what you need to do.

  1. Link your Ubisoft Connect account to your Xbox or PlayStation account here.
  2. Log onto your console and download Rainbow Six Siege (or insert your physical disc).
  3. Launch the game.

Rainbow Six cross-play and cross-progression confirmed

Once you upgrade your console, you won’t have to start from scratch. Ubisoft have confirmed that Rainbow Six will not only have cross-progression, but also cross-play between console generations.

You’ll keep all your progress, including Operators, in-game items, stats, and more, and you’ll also be able to play with friends if they don’t make the jump to next-gen just yet.

However, cross-play and cross-progression won’t be coming to PC in the near future. While Ubisoft aims on implementing it for the PS5 and Xbox Series X down the line, they will not be available on launch.
