Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six


 

Ubisoft has announced the next expansion breaking into Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege: Operation Blood Orchid.

The expansion’s content has yet to be fully revealed, but the publisher has confirmed that it will include a new map, set in Hong Kong, as well as new customization options and three new operators (two from Hong Kong and one from Poland). Previous expansions added only two new operators at a time, but Blood Orchid‘s extra content is presumably making up for the game’s recent Operation Health initiative, which pressed pause on new content in the name of cleaning up the experience.

The new map and operators will be shown off for the first time at this year’s Gamescom, during the Rainbow Six Siege Pro League finals. The reveal will go down on August 26th at 10:15 a.m. PT, and fans can catch it firsthand on the official Rainbow Six Siege Twitch channel. The entirety of the Pro League finals can be followed from this channel, running from August 25th to the 26th as eight international teams compete for the $237,500 prize pool.

All players can enjoy the new map when it drops August 29th for all platforms. Season pass holders can try out the new operators the same day, but other players must wait a week before getting hands on them.

Rainbow Six Siege is primed for the upcoming expansion, thanks to the recent and massive 2.2.2 patch. Among other notable changes and improvements, the latest patch lowers the custom match lobby player requirement from ten players to two on dedicated servers.
