UBISOFT® ANNOUNCES A THIRD YEAR OF CONTENT AND SUPPORT FOR TOM CLANCY’S RAINBOW SIX® SIEGE

SAN FRANCISCO – November 19 – Ubisoft announced Year 3 of that 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 existent map make over with a new level design and art direction

Year 3 will kick off with Operation Chimera. This season’s two operators are specialists in biohazard situations, on top of being playable in adversarial multiplayer, and during four weeks they 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 four 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.

you're getting a new map and 3 new ops? What's to complain about

Yeah you get an event too, they want to do it Blizzard style. It could be a sign of more events.

He's complaining about year 3, not White Noise. I'm not complaining about either, but we did get one fewer maps than we were initially promised in year 2 (no Poland map) and a sizable content delay, which is the only reason we're getting three operators at once in this and the previous DLC release. Because they canceled content in year 2. But I can't complain too much about the time spent on game health. It wasn't wasted.

In year 3 we're being promised fewer maps from the start, but at least we've reached the point where there's a pretty sizable number of maps. And hopefully they throw us a Polish map outside of the season content at some point.

I think they're planning more PvE events but I agree that a new permanent game mode would be nice.

This game is just turning into more wacky nonsense by the day! They better not start this shit with Ghost War.

Yeah... CCTV simulator. Thank god for Ghost Recon's barebones third person deathmatch (with drones).

...like that game will still be getting support in three years :D

Rather get polished games from years of support than annual cod, forza and fifas.

Gadgets and how wacky these game may be you have to tip your hat to the devs for how it all comes together so perfect, and also more free content? Amazing! Ubi have really redeemed themselves imo over these last few years, EA should take a leaf out of their book not just with releasing brilliant games but also adhering to what the fans want.

And ya know.. they always look more powerful than they are in trailers. There are multiple countermeasures in the meta for most everything in the game, and one of the coolest parts about that is how new additions to said meta influence old operators. I main Twitch and Twitch drones increase in utility when they add new defence options. Same with IQ on attack, and others in general.

If you're complaining about CCTV and playing a third person game with 3D spotting I can only laugh.

Such tactics. So hard.
