Ubisoft will be rolling out further details for Operation Red Crow today, the next content update for Rainbow Six Siege, which is nearly a year old. It has had a great year, although content is still a bit slow to roll out. This is the fourth update since its release, and adds another two Operators, a new map, and further gameplay updates.
It’s also worth noting that a release date has also been confirmed, with Operation Red Crow swooping in on November 17th for both consoles and PC. As well as the Skyscraper map that’s coming with the update, there’s also one more map coming in addition. A familiar map to some. If you complete all single player Situations, you unlock a map called ‘Bartlett University’. Well, that will soon be available for competitive multiplayer match ups too.
There are also new skins and animations coming for the Operators, which as described in this video, will make things a little bit harder if you’re taking an extra couple of seconds to distinguish who you are shooting at. Is this the right idea, Ubisoft?
The two new Operators are as follows:
- Hibana is an expert at gaining entry in high risk areas thanks to her explosive leadership on the field. She is equipped with the SuperNova and Type-89 as primary weapons, allowing for rapid movement and providing precise room-to-room clearings.
- Echo, a tactical and technology-driven Operator, is also equipped with the SuperNova, along with the MP5SD4 as primary weapons, allowing him to proceed rapidly and precisely in Close Quarter Battle contexts.
While it’s a bit late now, you could get a few hours in before the end of today, as Ubisoft made Rainbow Six Siege free to play from November 10-13 on PlayStation 4 and PC via Uplay and Steam.
