At E3 2019, Ubisoft announced that Operation Phantom Sight, the second season of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege Year 4, is now live for players on the PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The new season will bring two new Operators, a reworked map, and a bunch of improvements/updates.
Nøkk is the new Attacker that can activate the HEL Presence Reduction gadget. Drones, Bulletproof Cameras, Evil Eyes, and other observation tools will thus be unable to register Nøkk’s presence as she roams through the map, unseen. Her footsteps will be silenced as she stalks opposing Operators, unheard.
Warden, the new Defender, uses the Glance Smart Glasses gadget that can prevent him from being blinded by flash effects, cleanse existing flash blindness and gain visibility through the smoke. As long as he remains stationary, he can quickly turn a disadvantageous situation to his favor by activating his glasses, catching the approaching Attackers off guard.
Rainbow Six Siege Operation Phantom Sight will also include a complete rework of the Kafe Dostoyevsky map and the following improvements:
- Upgraded Reverse Friendly Fire: Now takes into consideration the actions of an entire squad. It is now possible to activate the Reverse Friendly Fire feature for an entire squad if they are consistently hurting their teammates.
- Complete redesign of the shop front for a smoother and more enjoyable experience
- Improvements to Ranked Mode to make it more competitive and closer to the Pro League format: Pick & Ban, 3-round rotations and the Bomb game mode will now be the standard for all Ranked matches.
- New skins: The Lesion prototype Elite skin is perfect to dish out some real venomous attacks with its cutting-edge technology alongside the abyssal Destroyer, dutiful Secret Star and vicious Strike Force weapon skins.
Owners of the Rainbow Six Siege Year 4 Pass can play with the new Operators starting today while the rest of the players will be able to unlock these Operators starting from 18 June 2019 using Renown or R6 Credits.
