Ubisoft have revealed new details about Rainbow Six Siege’s upcoming ‘Year 5: Operation Shadow Legacy’, which includes additional gameplay features, a re-working of the Chalet map, and the introduction of Splinter Cell protagonist Sam Fisher as a playable operator. You can check the content out in the trailer down below:
In Operation Shadow Legacy, players will be able to rediscover Sam Fisher as an Attacker named Zero, equipped with a new gadget, the Argus Launcher, a two-way drill camera. The cameras are launched to pierce soft or reinforced walls, windows, and hatches or stick to any surface. Once in the camera, the Attacker can rotate the camera’s vision to see the other side of the wall. Each camera is equipped with one laser charge, usable to deal damages to Defenders or destroy gadgets. Sam Fisher is also coming with his unique weapon the SC3000K & melee weapon: the Karambit.
In addition to Sam Fisher, players will be able to explore a reimagined Chalet map, which has been newly reworked. The team improved the first and the second floors, and the roof is now traversable, among other features. Objectives have been the main focus of this rework, with a hallway added to improve rotation in the Basement, and the Trophy site has been switched for a new one in Dining.
Alongside this new season, Ubisoft unveiled that Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege will be available to play for free from 27th August to 4th September, depending on the platform. Interested players can join the more than 60 million players in the Rainbow Six Siege community across all platforms, including immediate access to all maps, modes, and 20 legacy Operators.
Rainbow Six Siege is available now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC – it’s also coming to the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. Find out more on the official website through this link.
