Rainbow Six Siege Year 6 Season 3 will see changes come to three of its maps, instead of the typical new map or single map rework. In addition to the new attacker Osa, Bank, Clubhouse, and Coastline will all be modified to make them more balanced and competitive.

All this huge content in addition to other balancing changes and new cosmetics has fans waiting eagerly to play Siege's newest season, Operation Crystal Guard. Just when can fans play the newest season, let's take a look:

Rainbow Six Siege Year 6 Season 3 Release Date

Operation Crystal Guard will release on Tuesday Sept. 7 at a time to be announced.

The Test Servers for the season are live and will stay live for about three weeks until Crystal Guard's launch on Sept. 7. Unfortunately for console players, the test servers are only available on PC, but players who own the console version of the game can still get access to the test server on their PC at no additional charge.

Operation Crystal Guard will introduce Osa, a new attacker that will grant her teammates a ton more flexibility with her gadget, the Talon-8 tactical shield. Her shield can be held while moving or placed down, meaning attackers can use it aggressively in the push or passively while locking down a flank or the defuser. Siege players will definitely find a ton more new and creative ways to utilize the new operator when the Crystal Guard launches.

Until then, fans can play the test server on PC and countdown the days until Sept. 7.
