Tactical shooter Rainbow Six Siege is receiving a bunch of aesthetic tweaks ahead of the game's launch in Asian markets, developer Ubisoft has announced.

None of the changes will affect gameplay, although it does mean that various references to gambling, sexual content, and violence will be toned down. These include things like slot machines and images of nude women pole dancing.

However, the changes allow Ubisoft to streamline its efforts in updating the game on a global basis, rather than having to maintain two different builds.

'By maintaining a single build, we are able to reduce the duplication of work on the development side,' said the company. 'This will allow us to be more agile as a development team, and address issues more quickly.'

'We have a commitment to ensure that the Rainbow Six Siege experience remains true to its roots,' Ubisoft continued. 'We are adjusting art and visuals, but are not compromising what makes Rainbow Six Siege the game you know today.'

Rainbow Six Siege was released on PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One in December 2015, and has received a steady stream of post-launch content ever since.
