Rainbow Six Siege will now take away persistent useless our bodies from PvP, with builders saying that the drop in realism will assist aggressive integrity.
Ubisoft introduced the change immediately, which is able to see useless our bodies in PvP matches disappear after only a few seconds, being changed with a translucent icon representing which operator died in that location.
Recreation designer Sébastien François defined the issue that led to the change: “The difficulty now with [in-game corpses] is that they will not be replicated the identical method for all of the gamers [in a match]. So, typically, line of sight shall be obtainable to you, however it will not be obtainable for an additional [player]. That may lean into very unfair conditions the place you are going to take choices that possibly have been not one of the best ones simply due to the [location] of the physique.”
The change has been made not simply to cease that downside, but additionally to supply gamers extra data – with a number of skins for the sport’s operators, it may be onerous to inform at first look which character has been taken down. That downside ought to be solved with the icon.
“It’d make the sport look a bit much less reasonable,” continued François, “however for us the primary objective with that’s aggressive integrity. It is one thing we’re striving for, we all know it has been a problem for some time […] however we’re actually striving for aggressive integrity and we predict this transformation is for the higher.”

That added equity ought to assist cut back frustration for extra seasoned gamers, in addition to lend some weight to the sport’s giant presence in esports.
This alteration is a part of a wider evolution that Siege has taken recently, swapping its gritty, monochrome in-game model for a extra vibrant method, consultant of its evolution right into a sport, fairly than a conventional Tom Clancy recreation.
