Rainbow Six Siege maps to be censored for gambling, gore, sex and skulls

Caveira is reportedly peeved

Ubisoft has announced that they will be altering some of the maps in their twitchy, tactical team-shooter Rainbow Six Siege, removing various references to gambling, violence, sex and even skulls.

In a story I thought I'd dreamt until I got up this morning and realised it was legit, Ubisoft's 'shop-job is happening in order to make sure that Siege complies with rules in all global territories, giving the developer one single, worldwide version of the program to work with. Siege is expected to roll out in Asia soon, with China being noted for its restrictive rules on gaming content.

Among the alterations are the removal of slot machines, blood-stains in the environment, the changing of a neon-sign of a pole-dancer, and the alteration of the grim reaper on a gang logo. There will also be HUD tweaks, with the "knife" melee icon being replaced with a fist, and the "dead" icon changing from a stylised skull to a torso marked with an "X". You can check out the changes in the gallery below.

Don't worry, you can still blow people up with explosives, pepper them with bullets, ensnare them in razor-wire, catch them in bear-traps and electrocute them with taser-shields. None of these aesthetic changes will affect gameplay, of course, but they're still strangely ironic when Siege is fundamentally built around explosive violence. Hell, Operator Caveira is literally named after a skull, and has one emblazoned on her face, bad times for my gal Tania.

The changes are expected to roll out in Season 4. Rainbow Six Siege is available now on PS4, PC and Xbox One
