Ubisoft is going to release a gigantic patch/update for Rainbow Six : Siege on PC, with the massive 4K update coming in at 42GB, while the Non-4K update is a 26GB. Futher updates which will be launched for RS:S won’t be huge as this Behemoth.
The studio has said that the upcoming update includes a new baseline that will be the foundation for all future R6S patches, with the development team taking over from countless data forges means the aim is to make sure the game takes up less hard drive space and that load times are faster.
Ubisoft is counting various texture optimizations for Rainbow Six : Siege on the PC, with twist made to the texture quality of each level of graphics settings while PC gamers will also see “a meager increase in quality for character textures and a compelling increase for environment texture quality available for all settings” from Low to Ultra.
The developers said :
“Environment textures take up ~60% of available VRAM, and without making the Ultra HD pack unusable by anyone but those with the most powerful builds, the upgraded environment textures did not fit into the Ultra HD pack. Now that we have streamlined the way data and textures are handled, we are able to include these upgrades in the Ultra HD pack, and make it accessible by players that meet the 6GB VRAM minimum requirement”
