Specifically, the game's icons and environment designs are what will be the most heavily impacted by these changes.

Ubisoft has confirmed a series of very peculiar "aesthetic" changes that will remove references to gambling, sex, and violence.

In the news post, Ubisoft also outlines some of the reasons the game is being censored worldwide rather than just for those territories.

It was posted in good fun, something Ariana herself got a good laugh out of when she saw it later in the day. She tells us exactly which ex she's referring to and what her relationship with each of them has taught her.

"None of these changes will have an impact on gameplay", Ubisoft assures, the reasoning for the changes being that the developer will be able to streamline support for a "global version" of Rainbow Six Siege, rather than having to maintain "two parallel builds". The "branched build" of the game will be region-locked, and won't be accessible via VPNs.

Ubisoft is also taking out the slot machines, skull designs and more. Changes to some of the icons in the game, pictured below, are likely to be the most noticeable. It's not hard to see how some of the content here could fall afoul of these rules, broad and uncompromising as they are.

First person shooter Rainbow Six Siege is set to receive a number of cosmetic changes, in order to create a single version of the game that is suitable for all countries - including China. Popular battle royale game PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is now facing a potential ban in China, and many other Western games have struggled to secure release in the region.

The U.S. aircraft was operating in accordance with worldwide law and did not provoke this Russian activity. The crew of the EP-3 reported turbulence following the first interaction, and vibrations from the second.

The modified images and maps will be introduced with the Year 3, Season 4 release of the game due in late 2018.

You can check out images highlighting the biggest changes in terms of icons and map features below. Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege is now available on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

There's quite a bit of daylight between the blog post announcing the changes and Ubisoft employees' follow-up statements, so hopefully we'll get some clarification soon.
