Two new Operators and an entirely new game mode are now
available in Rainbow Six Siege on all platforms. The Operators, Finka and Lion,
bring new gadgets with the power to affect their allies and enemies no matter
where they are on the map. These abilities are set to shake things up in
competitive multiplayer, but they can also be used to great effect in Outbreak.
In this limited-time co-op event, teams of up to three players face off against
hordes of deadly enemies mutated by an alien parasite in order to discover the
truth behind the infestation. Check out the first video to see Finka and Lion's
gadgets in action, and move on to the second for some Outbreak starter tips.
The Operation Chimera Operators are available now for Year 3 Season Pass
holders, and in seven days, they will become available for purchase in-game
using Renown or R6 Credits. Outbreak is available for free to all Siege owners
from March 6 to April 3.
This marks the beginning of Year 3 for Rainbow Six Siege, a year which will
bring more new Operators, maps, and game updates. Going forward, players who own
or purchase the Standard, Advanced, Gold, or Complete editions of the game will
no longer have to pay Renown to unlock attachments or any of the original 20
Operators. Additionally, players who purchase the PC-only Starter Edition will
get more Operators unlocked from the get-go, with a total of six Operators
(randomly unlocked from a selection of 10) instead of four.
