Ubisoft unveils plans for Operation Vector Glare, a second season of Rainbow
Year 7. This will come to the tactical shooter on June 7th
bringing a new Belgian Operator, a new Team Deathmatch map, Phase 1 of the new
Reputation System (including Privacy Mode), a narrative change, and more. The
Reveal Panel Video
gives you a chance to get all the details on this firsthand. This includes word
that the planned Singapore map is being pushed out from Season 3 to Season 4.
Here's a summary:
Operation Vector Glare puts strategy at the forefront
with new Attacker Sens, a brilliant tactician from Belgium with military
experience and training in psychology. Their R.O.U. Projector System gadget
deploys a wheel that travels in a straight line to leave behind small projectors
and self-destructs after a set amount of time. The projectors construct a wall
of light that blocks players’ line of sight, so making a versatile approach fits
right into Sens’ wheelhouse. They are a low speed, high health Operator,
carrying a new weapon, the POF-9 or a 417 as a primary weapon and an SDP 9MM or
a GONNE-6 as a secondary weapon.
Alongside Sens, an exclusive new map for Team Deathmatch mode arrives at season
launch. Set in Greece, Close Quarter is the first dedicated Team Deathmatch map
that focuses on movement rather than defense setups. With a circular flow and a
good mix of different lines of sight, this facility will be a unique experience
for players to try.
As part of the Year 7 roadmap, Phase 1 of the Reputation System arrives this
season to continue addressing player behavior improvements. In this update,
Reverse Friendly Fire will be activated by default for those who injure too many
teammates. Players will receive two warnings before the penalty is activated,
and sanctions expire after playing multiple matches without injuring teammates.
Further updates address those who misuse the match cancellation system by
bringing more control to players throughout the process, from the initial
request to the match cancellation itself. In addition, Privacy options are now
available to all players in the Options
