Rainbow Six Siege Update 2.2.2 Out Now; Check Out Its Patch Notes

Rainbow Six Siege has been undergoing a substantial overhaul since earlier this summer, and now Ubisoft detailed the game’s latest big update. Title Update 2.2.2 is out now, and it’s designed to set the stage for even bigger changes coming later.

The update’s most significant tweaks are to how multiplayer servers work. With the new patch, custom matches have lower requirements for being hosted on dedicated servers. Previously, custom matches required a full lobby within ten minutes of starting a match to get dedicated servers, otherwise they would be hosted peer-to-peer. The patch makes it so that you only need two players in a match to get dedicated servers. This will make for a more stable online experience; however, it also means that player-hosted online lobbies aren’t possible anymore.

Ubisoft is also transitioning Terrorist Hunt to dedicated servers to prevent host migration interruptions. In addition, there’s a new voice chat system in the works–also with dedicated servers–that’s meant to provide clearer communication and to use less bandwidth. This is coming to PC first and consoles later.

Further, the update changes the vaulting animation to better reflect where the vaulter is aiming after he or she jumps. Previously, there was lag time between when a person landed from a vault and when the character model would show where they were aiming.

There are a lot of bug fixes and tweaks in the update, as well, and you can see the full list at the bottom of this article. Ubisoft also shared a couple of new features coming in Season 3, including better servers, the removal of peer-to-peer hosting, and LAN mode on PS4.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
