Rainbow Six Siege Operation Solar Raid Begins

Operation Solar Raid is now underway in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege, bringing a bunch of changes to the tactical shooter. As seen in the patch notes, this brings the promised cross-play and cross-progression, a new map, a new operator, a revamped battle pass, a new ranking system, and more. This post has a patch notes addendum with more details. Also included in this update is the beta version of Reputation Score, letting players see their Reputation Standing for the first time. This is part of a larger effort to combat toxic behavior discussed in detail here. Word is: "The Player Behavior and Rainbow Six Siege team is working hard to implement changes to the game while keeping in mind to increase cooperation and address toxicity." Here's an overview:
This game-changing season introduces many long-awaited features including crossplay and cross-progression, a new and improved battle pass, a new map, a new Colombian Operator, the new Ranked 2.0, and the ability for players to see their Reputation Standing.

Operation Solar Raid shines light on new Defender Solis and her SPEC-IO Electro-Sensor gadget that gathers crucial intel for coordinated strategy. Solis can clearly analyze and identify Attacker devices including drones, breaching devices, and more. Her gloves also allow her to interact with the gadget overlay and trigger a cluster scan. Solis is a medium speed, medium health Operator, carrying the P90 or an ITA 12L as a primary weapon and an SMG-11 as a secondary weapon.

In addition, Year 7 Season 4 brings exciting new updates to Rainbow Six Siege: crossplay and cross-progression. Console players will now be able to squad up with friends from other consoles via Ubisoft Connect. Players who wish to opt out of crossplay can turn off Crossplay Matchmaking in the Options menu. After logging into their Ubisoft Connect accounts, players’ progress, currencies, and items will be shared across all platforms. Additionally, their Ubisoft Connect account will get one free Alpha Pack.
