Rainbow Six Siege has been going strong for a very long time now, having hit an all time high of over 170,000 players in March 2018. Now, developer Ubisoft has revealed even more information about the game’s next major update, Operation Para Bellum.
The trailer, seen below, is for the new Villa map that will arrive with the update.
The official description by Ubisoft reads:
The villa was specifically designed to offer a competitive showdown. It sets the stage for diverse gameplay, providing wide staircases, narrow tunnels, and secret hatches. Don’t let the lush décor fool you, the villa is deadly: some of its floors are destructible and can fully expose you.
The land belongs to the Vinciguerra, a dangerous crime family known for their smuggling activities. The house is their retreat, where they lead a lavish lifestyle and collect rare art pieces. Now we catch the villa in a snapshot of time: Vinciguerras are burning documents and transporting their holdings before the big raid. But they’ve got wind of Operation Para Bellum and fled, leaving everything in disarray with vital information ready for the taking.
Alongside the new map, Operation Para Bellum will also add two brand new operators, both of whom will be Defenders. It will also feature the introduction of the new Pick & Ban system, which will give players the ability to ban certain operators form play.
More information about the update will be revealed by the developer from May 19-20th over at twitch.tv/rainbow6.
