Rainbow Six: Siege has received its first major update, with Operation Black Ice now available for the PC. The update provides gamers with the new Yacht map, two new JTF2 operators, new weapon skins, a spectator camera, and a bunch of fixes.

The new patch includes operator shouts being muted for the enemy team, which allows for stealthy approaches. Ranked and custom games see defenders being able to vote for the objection location they want to defend. Rainbow Six: Siege's latest update also reduces bull train intensity, increased the flashbang's range of effect, reduces noise levels of multiple Defender gadgets, adds map and mode name display during loading and planning phase screens, alters matchmaking timer display, and introduces individual spawn location selection for each Attacker.
