Rainbow Six Siege fans can download a brand new update today, as Ubisoft continues to make improvements to the game.

The Y6S3.3 update is available to download following a period of server downtime on consoles and PC.

The staggered downtime only runs for around 30 minutes, so it shouldn’t cause too much disruption.

Likewise, despite making one or two crucial fixes and improvements, the update itself isn’t actually that big.

The update weighs in at 3.7 GB on Xbox Series X and Series S, which is the biggest of the lot.

Elsewhere, Rainbow Six Siege Y6S3.3 is 2.21 GB on Ubisoft Connect, but just 1.7 GB on Steam. 

Finally, the new Rainbow Six Siege update is 1.4 GB on PS4, 1.2 GB on Xbox One, and only 1.13 GB on PS5.

As for the patch notes, the latest download fixes countless bugs, and also adds performance metrics to PC.

Operators are also tweaked, making the game even more balanced than before. You can check out the full list of patch notes below.
