Share this:

Rainbow Six (Rainbow 6) Siege players, the last content drop for the game for 2020 is finally here! Ubisoft has released the Rainbow 6 Siege update 1.98 Dec. 1 patch, which ushers in the Y5S4 content called Operation Neon Dawn! This brings a map rework, a new Operator and more.

Note that this is a bigger download than usual, but it will consolidate the data, which means that once you’re done downloading the file, it should be smaller than before.
