Ubisoft has released a video showing how the newest operators in Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege will work.
First is Valkyrie. Playing for the defending team, she is equipped with her Blackeye sticky cameras, which can be stuck onto virtually any surface. Teammates can also use the cameras, so it is best to put them in a variety of locations. The cameras can be destroyed, and they emit a large blue light from their front that will make them stand out if not tactically placed.
Next is Blackbeard, who plays for the attacking side. He is able to mount a small ballistic shield on the front of his rifles. The shield is transparent, allowing him to expose his head without fear of getting hit. His body is still vulnerable, however, and the shield can be broken if it takes enough damage.
Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege is available for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Valkyrie and Blackbeard are both part of the game’s latest expansion, Operation Dust Line. The expansion will also come with a new map entitled Border, as well as a collection of new vanity items. The expansion is available right now to Season Pass owners, and will release for everyone else on May 18th.
