Rainbow Six Siege Year 3 DLC Announced

The developer team behind tactical shooter video game Rainbow Six Siege; Ubisoft wants to start off Year Three a little differently. So, they have just announced more content and additional support for the third year of the game's release. What we've been able to gather is that we are getting two new maps and one of the existing gets a makeover as well as eight new Operators. Moreover, the first-ever co-op event of the game will be launched. Are you feeling excited yet? We know, you are.

"Operation Chimera" will be the highlight of Year Three, where two new operators will be introduced from France and Russia. There will also be a four weeks limited-time co-op event named Outbreak during Season 1 of Year Three, which will be accessible for those who own Rainbow Six Siege. This event is basically all about quarantine and biohazard. This event will also allow players the chance to win exclusive cosmetics collection.

In the four season duration, each time two new Operators will be brought in. Having special roles in Outbreak co-op, these two operators are very well equipped to handle biohazard situations and are also available for multiplayer. Now this actually seems like a zombie apocalypse setting, where you go out there to put a bullet at the targets to stop them from coming at you.

Not only the game is getting two brand-new maps of Year Three, Season 1 but one of the old one is totally being re-done with new artwork and level design. Following the first Season, the game will be taking a bit more usual approach in Season Two. Two of the new Operators joining the fight will be from Italy and so will be one of the maps. Season Three will mix things up by picking one from Delta Force and another one from Scotland Yard before Season Four recruits two from Morocco.

Rainbow Six Siege came out in December, 2015 and is available to play on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One for all. Promising a twist in the event, brand manager Alex Remy nodded that they surely are up to something with Year Three and the Outbreak event. Who knows if they are thinking of starting something like Call of Duty: Nazi Zombies or not.
