The full Ubisoft Connect experience is now available for Rainbow Six Siege! The update brings the all new Overlay for all the platforms Rainbow Six Siege is available on, making a number of features you’ve come to know and love as well as some new ones just a button press away.


Rewards allow you to spend all your hard earned units on in-game items such as weapon skins and charms, and get access to some out of game items such as soundtracks and wallpapers.


The Challenges system has been revamped and you’ll now find new Core Challenges to complete, as well Time-Limited Challenges. Time-Limited Challenges will reset every Thursday, so make sure you’re regularly checking back in so you don’t miss out on any of the available rewards. Completing Core and Time-Limited Challenges will also give you Ubisoft Connect XP that goes towards your profile level. As you level that up you’ll earn Units that you can spend on additional Rewards!

Curious about how you’ve been performing? Within Stats you’ll find a breakdown of your in-game performance. You can also compare them with your friends to find out who actually has the best Kill/Death ratio.


Smart Intel is an all new feature to the Overlay experience that we’ve brought over from the Mobile Companion App. Before kicking off your next game session, you can visit it to get a breakdown of your best performances along with some personalized tips based on your playstyle from a collection of more than 700 videos!

On top of all that you’ll of course be able to visit the Friends section to see what they’re all up to, and you can use the Feed to see all their latest activity as well as keep up to date with our latest news.

For those of you on PC you’ll be able to invite others to a lobby or join open ones from within the Friends section. You’ll also find the Store area if you’re looking to pick up some additional content and the Browser, so there’s no need to tab out or minimize the game to get your browsing done. Finally, there’s also the Key Activation section if you have a key on hand.

One important note for the PC experience is that Chat and Settings are no longer available within the Overlay. They are both still available within the Desktop App and you can easily bring it up the chat in a separate in a pop-up window! We’re working hard to make improvements to both these features so we can deliver the best overlay experience to you.

Before we wrap this up, we know cross-progression and cross-play for Rainbow Six Siege is something a lot of you are curious about. You will be able to upgrade your Rainbow Six Siege to the next generation of consoles with no additional cost.* Cross-progression and cross-play is available between consoles of the same family which means you will keep your saves and in-game content and play together between Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S, or between PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5. We know a lot of you are excited to see those features expand further, and while they will not be available with the launch of the next-gen versions of the game, we are exploring possibilities and want to make sure we are taking all necessary elements into consideration to ensure we continue providing all of you with the best technical and well-rounded experience. This type of implementation needs to be thoroughly thought-through and this is where we stand right now. We will be sure to update you in the future when we have more news to share.

As always, if you have any questions or feedback make sure you head over to our forums and let us know!
