Rainbow Six Siege's New Operators Teased
They're part of a WMD threat team.
Rainbow Six Siege's third season of content is kicking off soon with the launch of a big update and the Outbreak event. But Ubisoft already has more in store for Year 3 Season 1, including new Operators. Recently, the company teased some of what you can expect from the game's next playable characters on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
The Operators will make up a new Counter-Terrorism Unit--one of the classes of characters in the game. The new CTU will be the Chemical, Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear (CBRN) Threat Unit, specializing in counter-Weapons of Mass Destruction operations.
According to Ubisoft's blog post, the first Operator "hails from France and uses a drone to maintain quarantine perimeters. Their service record is astounding, but their list of regrets seems endless." The second Operator, meanwhile, "moved to Russia to pursue their studies and they uncovered a range of applications for self-dissolving nanobots. All allies can benefit from the research carried out by this CBRN Specialist."
These two Operators will be added to the multiplayer roster and will be playable during the upcoming Outbreak event. Outbreak consists of a new cooperative mode that involves teams of three taking on a town ravaged by an epidemic (it sounds like you'll be fighting some sort of zombie-like creature). And, of course, there'll be gear for you to acquire.
