One of Ubisoft’s biggest games right now is getting it’s Year 3 content update on the Xbox One as early as next month. Rainbow Six: Siege continues to draw a huge crowd both competitively and on Xbox Live. Siege is probably one of my favourite games of 2017 and the addition of further Agents and maps is great news.
As with previous content updates, more new will follow to coincide with Ubisoft’s 2018 Six Invitational in Montreal.
“After naming ENCE the champions of the Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege Season 3 Pro League Final that took place in Sao Paulo from November 17th – 19th, Ubisoft announced Year 3 of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege, continuing to bring exciting and thrilling challenges to its fans.
Year 3 will be structured into four Seasons 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 are specialists in biohazard situations and, on top of being playable in adversarial multiplayer, will have to face a major threat in what will be the game’s first co-op event ever, named Outbreak. This event will be playable during 4 weeks for free for Rainbow Six Siege owners. It will also feature an exclusive collection of cosmetics, available only during the time of the event.
The full reveal of Operation Chimera and Outbreak will take place in Montreal at the Six Invitational 2018. More information on Year 3 will be coming soon.
Year 3 Pass will be available for purchase on December 12th. Before then, players still have one last chance to buy the Year 2 season pass that includes not only 8 operators (Mira, Jackal, Ying, Lesion, Ela, Dokkaebi, Vigil and Zofia) but also a series of exclusive customisation items.*”
If you missed the finals, check out Ubi’s replay of the competition on their YouTube channel. As I learned this year, it’s never too late to join the party with Siege – although I recommend finding a patient group of established players for best results!
“Inspired by real-world counter-terrorist organizations, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege puts players in the middle of lethal close-quarter confrontations. For the first time in a Rainbow Six game, players will engage in sieges, a new style of assault where enemies have the means to transform their environments into modern strongholds while Rainbow Six teams lead the assault to breach the enemy’s position. Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege gives players unprecedented control over their ability to fortify their position by reinforcing walls and floors, using barbed wire and deployable shields, laying mines and more, or to breach the enemies’ position using observation drones, setting charges, rappelling and more. The fast pace and uniqueness of each siege sets a new bar for intense firefights, strategic gameplay and competitive gaming.”
