Rainbow Six Siege Operation Para Bellum Unveiled, Includes New Operators and Map

Earlier today, Ubisoft revealed the first details of the upcoming Operation Para Bellum, the major update coming to Season 2 of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege Year Three. The new season will take players to Italy, adopting a full Italian setting while also introducing new operations, a new map, and a variety of other content, as per usual.

Operation Para Bellum will introduce two new Italian operators specialized in defense as well as a new map, which will be the 20th in the game. The new update will also introduce the Pick & Ban system, providing players with an extra layer of strategy between teams, as each side tries to counter their opponents’ picks during the banning phase. The full reveal of Year 3 Season 2 content for Rainbow Six: Siege will be made later this month during the Pro League Finals on May 19-20, so make sure to stay tuned for more information when that happens.
