Rainbow Six Siege Operation Phantom Sight Test Server Tomorrow

A new post on the Ubisoft Website has more on Year 4 Season 2 for Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege, including details on the two new operators coming to the tactical shooter, and the rework coming to the Kafe Dostoyevsky map. This trailer is included with a look at the gameplay and the new operators, offering a few tips to get players started with their new gadgets. We also have a separate press release about this saying a Windows test server will launch tomorrow for Operation Phantom Sight, offering the chance to help work out the bugs on all that's coming:

Today, Ubisoft announced the full details of the second season of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six® Siege Year 4 content. Operation Phantom Sight introduces an all-new Attacker and a Defender, Nøkk and Warden respectively, as well as a major map rework of Kafe Dostoyevsky, the high-class locale situated at the heart of Moscow. Furthermore, in Year 4 Season 2, Rainbow Six Siege will introduce new changes to the recently implemented feature, Reverse Friendly Fire, as well as updates to the Rainbow Six Siege storefront and the Ranked playlist,

In this new season, Nøkk and Warden will redefine how intel is gathered as the newest additions to the Rainbow Six Siege Operator lineup. Armed with her FMG-9 and SIX12-SD, Nøkk uses her high-tech HEL Presence Reduction gadget to quietly navigate behind enemy lines, invisible to cameras and drones alike. In the meantime, Warden uses his Glance Smartglasses to enhance his vision, providing him with better visibility in smoke as well as immunity to flashes while remaining still. His M590A1 and MPX makes him a powerful anchor and entry denier in defense.

In addition to these two new Rainbow recruits, players will be able to explore the map rework of Kafe Dostoyevsky, which incorporates significant changes to the current map in order to open up and diversify gameplay: the first floor has been redesigned, new Bomb sites appeared on the second floor, alongside with many other updates improving replayability and gameplay opportunities. Other features that will be introduced in the upcoming season include further updates to Reverse Friendly Fire based on data and community feedback, a reworked Ranked playlist and a new in-game storefront.

The Test Server for Operation Phantom Sight will go live on May 21. The Test Server is an alternative version of Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege, allowing players to test upcoming gameplay features that will make their way into the main game itself. Since this is a testing environment, a consistent gameplay experience is not guaranteed on the Test Server. Players are invited to submit the issues they encounter on the Test Server on the R6 Fix platform [link: here]. The Test Server is exclusive to Windows PC.

Out of the Blue

It was an interesting Game of Thrones finale... I feel like it's taking a while for me to digest it fully. I've seen reactions heaping both praise and criticism, and I guess it probably deserves some of each. But after lowered expectations over the past two seasons I did think it was much better executed than it could have been. I was quite worried it would be such a disappointment that it would feel like it ruined the whole run of the show, so I'm relieved that this was not my takeaway. It was a mixed bag, but I think overall I'm pretty satisfied. Am I wrong here? Was it as bad as some of the critics say?
