A new update is coming next month to Rainbow Six Siege, marking the start of a new season and introducing new content like a new Defender and a new map. There are also interesting updates and cool features, including the launch of cross-play and cross-progression. That means matchmaking between consoles, PC, and streaming platforms will be available.

This feature also allows for unified progression and inventory, so players can share their progress, in-game currencies, and even items across all platforms. You can learn more about cross-platform synchronization here.

Reputation Score Display

Once Operation Solar Raid launches, players can look forward to the update for the Reputation System. Players should now be able to see their Reputation Standing and obtain more information on active penalties linked to their accounts.

It's important to remember that since the feature is currently in beta, there won't be any penalties or bonuses based on the standing of the player. These effects and modifiers go live at a later date.
