Rainbow Six Siege Update Adds High-Resolution Textures on PC

Ubisoft has detailed the next patch for Rainbow Six Siege, which is set to address a number of complains levelled by the community, and also provide a high-resolution texture pack for those on PC.

The changes, according to the publisher, will be introduced on December 16 across all platforms. PC players will see the message "[3-0x80030081] IncompatibleCustomClientVersion" while the patch is being deployed, Ubisoft has said this is normal. The Utra-HD texture pack is described as "best appreciated while playing the game in 4K resolution." It upgrades "some of the most common textures in the game, such as characters and weapons, to a new level of fidelity."
