    Rainbow Six Siege improvements on PS5

    On PS5, Rainbow Six Siege features the following improvements:

    • Performance Mode: 120 FPS lens with dynamic 4K resolution scaling
    • Resolution mode: Target 60 FPS with 4K resolution
    • DualSense support
      • Haptic feedback, adaptive trigger support, and controller speaker support have been added.
    • Support for activities
      • Ranked, Unranked, Newcomer, Quick Play, and Event Activity Cards let you dive into the game faster.

    The PlayStation 5 version of the game offers two main graphics modes: performance and resolution. Performance mode targets 120 FPS and sacrifices resolution to maintain that level of performance, while resolution mode delivers a native 4K image at 60 FPS. Resolution Mode is a slight upgrade from the PS4 Pro version of the game, while Performance Mode offers a significant upgrade from the current version of the game.

    The PS5 version of Rainbow Six Siege also has the added benefit of DualSense support, which is not possible on Xbox Series X | S. Haptic feedback and controller speaker support will allow for greater immersion, while adaptive triggers will mimic gunfire like they do in Fortnite and Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. Lastly, Activity Support lets you jump into matches faster, and though it's not quite a replacement for the Xbox Series X Quick Pickup | S, that's always a good idea.

    Rainbow Six Siege Improvements on Xbox Series X | S

    On Xbox Series X | S, Rainbow Six Siege features the following improvements:

    • Performance Mode (X Series): 120 FPS lens with dynamic 4K resolution scaling
    • Resolution mode (X series): Target 60 FPS with 4K resolution
    • Performance Mode (S Series): 120 FPS lens with 1080p
    • Resolution mode (S series): Objective 60 FPS at 1728p
    • Quick CV
      • Quick resume capability that lets you switch between multiple titles and instantly pick up where you left off.

    The next-gen Xbox version of the game loses the advanced functionality of the controller, but the Quick Resume feature is available. This allows players to quickly switch between multiple games, meaning you should be able to bypass Rainbow Six Siege startup and go straight to the main menu when you open the game.

    Otherwise, the performance and resolution modes are the same as on the PlayStation 5, although the S series cannot handle as much due to its weaker hardware. Still, it manages to perform roughly on par with the Xbox One X in resolution mode, producing 60 FPS at near 4K resolution. The S Series does, however, have the added benefit of a Performance Mode, which the Xbox One X lacks, so S Series owners still get a pretty significant next-gen upgrade. On the S-series, the Rainbow Six Siege performance mode targets 120 FPS at 1080p, which is admirable considering the price of the system.

    How to upgrade Rainbow Six Siege to the next generation

    Rainbow Six Siege will automatically upgrade to the next-gen version once it releases on December 1 alongside Operation Neon Dawn. On Xbox Series X | S, an update will be automatically downloaded and the game will be tagged with an X | S in your library to indicate that the game is now optimized. On PlayStation 5, the game will automatically appear as a PS5 title in your library if you haven't installed it. If it is installed, you will need to upgrade to the PS5 version of the game by pressing Options and selecting "Game Version" from the PS5 menu. The next-gen upgrade is free on both platforms, and cross-generational play is also available.

    Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege is out now on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X | S. The next-gen version of the game was launched recently alongside Operation Neon Dawn. For more information on the next-gen version of the game, visit the official Rainbow Six Siege website.
