Is Rainbow Six Siege cross-platform?
The operators from Rainbow Six Siege attacking.

Despite coming out in 2015, Rainbow Six Siege has somehow only gotten better and more popular with age. It takes the best elements from a tactical shooter like Counter-Strike 2 and specialized characters team compositions from hero shooters, but sets them in a destructive environment to make each round tactically unique. It is a hardcore game, but even more casual players can have a ton of fun breaching walls and peeking through a hole in the wall to land a headshot.

Aside from the new maps, modes, and characters added, Rainbow Six Siege has also moved from last-generation consoles to current ones. It has also remained popular on PC. Do all these platforms play nice together in this old game, or does Rainbow Six Siege have cross-platform support?
Is Rainbow Six Siege cross-platform?
Rainbow Six Siege is only partially cross-platform. Console players on either PlayStation 4, PS5, Xbox One, or Xbox Series X/S can all play in matches together, but not with the PC crowd.

The Legend of Zelda is the latest Nintendo franchise to get the Lego treatment, as Nintendo and Lego have unveiled the Great Deku Tree 2-in-1 Set.

According to a press release on Lego's website, this is a 2,500-piece set that can be customized to represent both Ocarina of Time and Breath of the Wild, hence why it's called a 2-in-1. If players go with the Ocarina of Time-inspired build, the Deku Tree will look like the one from that game and have a mechanism that lets people open its mouth to see a Skulltula. Meanwhile, the Breath of the Wild-themed Deku will have pink blossoms and a mechanism that lets people make its eyebrows and mouth move.
