Rainbow Six Siege will be getting a new update today, but it will be available for PC users only.

Ubisoft recently released the Y6S1.2 Patch on the Test Server, and now it is ready to be rolled out on the live servers. The new update will drop on PC today, April 13th, at 1 PM UTC, and the server maintenance will last for approximately 30 minutes.

The new Y6S1.2 Patch will be introducing some important bug fixes, such as the ‘Yellow-Ping’ bug. Siege players recently found that they were unable to place yellow pings or mark gadgets when standing close to a railing or object. Some sort of invisible barrier seemed to be blocking the ping markers.

However, with Patch Y6S1.2, the devs have mitigated this issue, alongside other bugs, such as a “Defender exploit preventing match cancellations”.

Below you will find the download sizes for each platform:

  • Ubisoft Connect: 1.28 GB
  • Steam: 895 MB

Ubisoft also stated that “for consoles, the Y6S1.2 and Y6S1.3 updates will be bundled together and released when the 1.3 patch is ready.”
