Rainbow Six Siege Wind Bastion releases November 20 for early testers

Ubisoft just revealed Operation Wind Bastion, the next major updated headed to its hit tactical shooter, Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege. The update debuts two of the game's strongest Operators yet, alongside the new "Fortress" map, and various other content. And while its formal debut is on track for early December, select PC users will play early via the Technical Test Server (TTS).

Rainbow Six Siege's TTS provides early access to upcoming updates, spanning new content and balancing tweaks. Expect two weeks of early access via this pre-release build, with feedback ushering in changes before the public debut. Ubisoft has announced that Operation Wind Bastion is scheduled to hit the TTS on November 20, ahead of its likely December 4 public arrival.

The Rainbow Six Siege TTS is found via its Uplay PC client for those who own the paid retail edition. The full client download will be available upon launch, providing the first opportunity to experience Wind Bastion's offerings. For those on Xbox One and PlayStation 4, you'll need to wait for the full version.

As Rainbow Six Siege's final major update of 2018, there's no better time to get started, starting at just $27 on Amazon.
