Rainbow Six Siege, the massively-popular competitive FPS, is getting ready ahead of the game’s launch in Asian markets. To accommodate
According to Ubisoft, the game needs to make some adjustments to the in-game art and environments to conform to sensibilities that are different from those present in western markets. None of the changes will affect gameplay, although it does mean that various references to gambling, sexual content, and violence will be removed or changed to account for the new markets.
Ubisoft also announced that because of these removals, there will not be two builds of the game. Again, no gameplay will change, it’s merely art assets that are being changed or removed. The company wants to focus on delivering a consistent experience for all players, and having only a single version will make that goal easier to achieve.
We have a commitment to ensure that the Rainbow Six Siege experience remains true to its roots. We are adjusting art and visuals, but are not compromising what makes Rainbow Six Siege the game you know today. By maintaining a single build, we are able to reduce the duplication of work on the development side. This will allow us to be more agile as a development team, and address issues more quickly.
