Rainbow Six Gets Ready To Go Oriental
Ubisoft have announced that Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege is getting another update, Operation Red Crow. In line with the studio’s commitment to provide new post-launch content for the game and complete the Year One road map, this content update introduces a free new map and new gameplay features. Once again two new Operators will be available for Season Pass holders on November 17 and for all players on November 24.
The new map, Skyscraper takes place high above the streets of Nagoya, Japan, where Operators have to neutralize an organized crime threat within a Yakuza-filled mansion. Two Japanese Special Assault Team (S.A.T.) Operators, Hibana and Echo, have been enlisted to suppress this menace:
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 motions 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.
