Tom Clancy’s: Rainbow Six Siege had another great year with an increase in the fan base. Not only did we get new operators and maps, we also got the chance to play the limited time zombie mode known as Outbreak and currently we’re getting the opportunity to play the game with pro-league rules in the “Road To S.I” game mode. However, Wind Bastion concludes Year 3.
The next season is going to be set in Australia, dubbed as “Operation Burnt Horizon”. While there were leaks speculating this for a while, we finally get an official confirmation on it. In this season, we are getting a defender and an attacker.
If the leaks continue to be accurate, the attacker will be known as Gridlock, who will have the ability to deploy a tracking web, while the defender might be called Mozzie, who might have the ability to take control of the attacker drones. The new map is going to be set somewhere in the Australian outback.
As always, Ubisoft has provided us with a vague description and few hints regarding the new season. You can try to decipher it yourself:
“Year Four Season One is all set to go, featuring two new operators from the SASR. One’s a stoic Attacker who’s just there to get the job done, and the other is a quick-witted Defender who’s in it for the guts and glory. Two old mates from way back, they’ve signed up with Rainbow to bring a little Aussie know-how to the other side of the world. This includes a new device that’ll keep roaming Defenders on their toes, and one that’ll leave Attackers at a bit of a loss.
That doesn’t mean they’ve left the sunburnt country completely behind them, though – there’s a slice of the red desert coming with them. A high-stakes chase has ended in a standoff at a service station halfway between here and nowhere, resulting in a map that’s packed with twists, turns, and Australiana. Try not to get distracted in the gift shop or dream of sampling the national specialties available at the fast food counter. Your teammates will thank you.”
As always, the full reveal is going to take place after the Invitational’s on the 17th of February.
