Operation Dread Factor is expected to go live in Rainbow Six Siege on May 30.

After Operation Commanding Force, which saw the arrival of Brava to Rainbow Six Siege, Operation Dread Factor will be the game's second season of Year 8.

Fenrir's new concept has been welcomed with open arms, including the new features that will go live to the game in just two weeks. We hope you are excited for Operation Commanding Force!

What is the Test Server?

The Test Server is a version of Rainbow Six Siege separated from the live game where Ubisoft lets the community try out the upcoming changes. It's perfect to detect bugs before the season is released to Rainbow Six Siege, or to spot operator strengths or flaws that must be tweaked.

Although the developers always have the final word, they want to see how the changes affect the meta before arriving to the game. This makes the Test Server the perfect tool, as the community provides Ubisoft with important feedback about the upcoming changes planned for Rainbow Six Siege.

Unfortunately, the Test Server is only open for PC players. As of now, Console players can't download the Test Server.
