July 28, 2016 Written by Jordan Biazzo

Ubisoft has detailed the latest piece of DLC for the tactical multiplayer game, Rainbow Six: Siege.

The new Operation Skull Rain DLC is set to release August 2 and it will include two new classes and a brand new map set in Brazil.The two new classes differ as one is defensive while the other is an offensive class. Season Pass holders will have the new classes seven days early and they will be able to start with them right away. Other users will have to purchase them using in-game currency.

The defensive character is named Caveira and she possesses the “Silent Step” skill that enables her to sneak up on enemies to immobilize and then interrogate them to reveal their teammates’ location.

The attacker, Capitão carries a tactical crossbow that can fire asphyxiating bolts that burn oxygen within a certain radius, as well as micro smoke grenades that can mask positions and team movements.

In addition, Rainbow Six: Seige will also be getting a Tactical Realism custom game mode. This feature has been heavily requested by users and it’s finally happening.

Perhaps the biggest of these is the addition of a Tactical Realism custom game mode. By popular request, the Tactical Realism mode prevents players from marking enemies, allowing only the timer, compass, gadget, and weapon panels to be visible in the HUD.

Additionally, there are no kill confirmations, and more realistic magazine management will be put into play. The idea is to push players to rely even more on their teammates and communication for information on enemy locations and kill counts.

More details on the soon to release Operation Skull Rain DLC will be revealed during the Season Two Xbox Pro League Finals on July 30.
