Ubisoft Announces Year 3 of Rainbow Six Siege, Includes New Maps and Operators

Ubisoft announced that that Year 3 of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege is coming, and will be structured into four seasons, and will be available for purchase on December 12, though no information on when the seasons will debut has been announced.

According to Ubisoft, the upcoming Year 3 of Siege will include a variety of new things, including:

  • 8 new operators from the world’s highly performing CTUs
  • 2 brand new maps set in Italy and Morocco
  • 1 existing map make over with a new level design and art direction

This season’s two operators will be specialists in biohazard situations and will be available in multiplayer as well as the newly announced co-op event named Outbreak. This event will be playable during 4 weeks for free for Rainbow Six Siege owners and will feature an exclusive collection of cosmetics, available only during the time of the event.

Ubisoft has said that the full reveal of the new Outbreak mode, as well as the Operation Chimera, will be taking place in Montreal at the Six Invitational in 2018. In case you missed it, the final season for Year Two of Rainbow Six Siege, Operation White Noise, was recently released, alongside a new map called Mok Myeok Tower. More on that map below:

At the break of dawn, the city awakens in a haze of untold dreams and routines to follow. Cars flow through the grid, halting now and then at the mercy of traffic. Soft morning light reflects off the windows on modern buildings, all designed to expectation and made tall by collective ambition. Snowflakes flutter down on the bustling metropolis. It’s business as usual until day turns into night when the streets take on their second identity and neon colors emerge from stacked billboard ads. A helicopter surveys the area, free from the restraints of the grid, rising above office buildings of tech giants. It finds the highest helipad on the tallest tower. Somewhere inside the tower, a breaching charge detonates.

Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege is available now.
