Ubisoft recently updated their blog site, which explores the new DLC for Rainbow Six Siege called Operation Skull Rain. Featuring new operators, maps and modes, Ubisoft plans on shipping the expansion for PS4, Xbox One and PC, on August 2nd.
As many already know, I’m not fond of DLC. Adding on to that, Rainbow Six Siege acts like DLC to me. But, if the game holds a special place in your heart, or cures boredom, Ubisoft has a new expansion pack ready to hit PC and consoles on the 2nd of August. Not only will it bring new operators, maps and so on, it will also bring a “realism” mode.
Starting things off with the operators, Caveira and Capitão will be playable when Operation Skull Rain drops. Like most Season Pass algorithms, they will have the chance of playing the new operators ahead of anyone else, which folks without the Season Pass will be able to unlock both operators by collecting in-game currency.
Once obtained, Caveira comes equipped with an M12 and SPAS-15 for primary weapons, a PRB92 as a secondary, and Nitro Cell C4 and Barbed Wire for gadgets. As for her main skill, she hones the Silent Step.
Looking over to Capitão, she carries a tactical crossbow that shoots deadly bolts that also procs AOE damage when near a target. Equipped with smoke grenades, Capitão also utilizes an M249 and PARA-308 for primary weapons, a PRB92 for secondary, and frag and stun grenades, as well.
As for the new mode, players will find Tactical Realism to add some spice to the actual game. You can read what it has to offer below:
“By popular request, the Tactical Realism mode prevents players from marking enemies, allowing only the timer, compass, gadget, and weapon panels to be visible in the HUD. Additionally, there are no kill confirmations, and more realistic magazine management will be put into play. The idea is to push players to rely even more on their teammates and communication for information on enemy locations and kill counts.”
Rainbow Six: Siege is out now for PS4, Xbox One and PC. The new DLC will be available to play on August 2nd. For more information about the game and Operation Skull Rain, you can head on over to blog.ubi.com.
