Rainbow Six Siege’s post-launch maps will all be downloadable for free. The game will launch with 11 maps already installed, and over time any maps that are released after the launch will be available to all players for free. Ubisoft says this is part of the company’s attempts to ensure players will return to Rainbow Six Siege long after its launch.

“We are glad to finally share with you that at launch, Rainbow Six Siege will have 11 maps, playable both day or night, all using the full potential of our Real Blast destruction technology,
a Ubisoft representative posted on Reddit. “In addition, all post-launch maps will be downloadable for free. We want players to stay with us for the long term and have ambitious post-launch plans that we will detail at a later stage.”

Earlier, Rainbow Six Siege’s level designer Benoit Deschamps told PC Gamer that the team had enough ideas to create as many as 50 unique maps, but were forced to narrow those ideas down to their ten best. (It now turns out there are 11 maps, not 10.) Plenty of those ideas are sure to get their time to shine in the post-launch maps.

The beta for Rainbow Six Siege launches September 24 and the official release is scheduled for December 1. Access to the beta can be secured, as usual, by preordering the game. But if you don’t want to give away your hard-earned cash just yet, you can register via the game’s official website and join the waitlist. It doesn’t guarantee access, but at least you’ll have a chance.

Rainbow Six Siege is the latest instalment in the Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six series, based on Tom Clancy’s novels. The upcoming game focuses heavily on tactical cooperation between players and environmental destruction. Pre-release reports of the game have so far been positive, with critics praising the game’s level design and sense of tension.

Critics and fans alike went crazy for Amazon’s take on the famous role-playing game series Fallout. There were a lot of nominations for 16 Emmy awards, including Best Actor and Outstanding Drama Series. The show was able to reach audiences outside of gamers and got a lot of attention from the industry.

Eurogamer has been keeping track, and now that all the votes are in, Fallout is tied for fifth place with 23 nominations for the 76th Emmy Awards, which are put on by the US Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. With 25, The Bear has the most nominations, followed by True Detective: Night Country with 23, and Shogun with 19.

It shouldn’t be a surprise that Walton Goggins is up for Best Actor for his performance as The Ghoul. Although games will always be our first choice, it’s great that adaptations of games don’t have to be awful, and we can’t wait for the next season of the shows.

Are you surprised by how well Amazon’s version of Fallout has done in the mainstream? Is the curse of movies based on video games finally over? Leave a comment below and let us know.

Ten million people play The First Descendant in its first week

The free-to-play shooter The First Descendant has gotten a lot of attention in its first week. The game’s publisher, Nexon, says that 10 million people have already tried it out.

Insider Gaming pointed out that since there is no cost up front, it’s still too early to tell how many of those players will stick around, but it’s still a big number for a new IP. On Steam alone, it peaked at 264,860 concurrents right after launch and has still managed to break 200,000 in the last 24 hours, so it looks like a lot of people are still really into the game.

It was a “mindless and repetitive grind,” and we gave The First Descendant a 3/10 in our review. Of course, that’s just one opinion; other experts have had different ones. Most people, though, say that the game’s annoying free-to-play model is the worst thing about it.

Are you one of the millions of people who played The First Descendant last week? Are you going to come back for more? Leave a comment below and let us know.
