At today’s Six Invitational 2019, Ubisoft has announced the full details for Season 1 of Year 4 of Rainbow Six Siege! Same as before, two new Operators and a new map are entering the fold.
In Rainbow Six Siege Burnt Horizon, players will be introduced to an all-new Attacker, and all-new Defender from the Australian SASR Mobility Platoon. Named Gridlock and Mozzie, these new Operators will also come with a new map named Outback. Check out the gameplay trailer below to see the Operator gadget tips and more.
Operation Burnt Horizon brings two new Operators, the Attacker Gridlock and the Defender Mozzie, both friends for years in the Australian Special Air Service Regiment (SASR) Platoon. Gridlock uses Trax Stingers, a portable version of road spikes that when activated, deploys a hexagonal cluster of spikes. When Defenders step on them, the Trax Stingers deal damage and slow them, making this gadget a good map control tool. In the meantime, Mozzie can deploy a Pest Launcher. When launched, the Pest latches onto the nearest enemy drone and obscures its camera. The Pest then initiates an override sequence to hack the drone and grant full control to Mozzie.
Alongside these two new Operators, Burnt Horizon introduces the map Outback, a lonely service station forgotten on one of Australia’s iconic motorways. Outback is divided into three distinct sections – the Garage, the Motel, and the Restaurant – all of which are unique and distinctly recognizable, even from a distance. Outback is a medium-sized map, so players won’t need to go far to find alternative routes. Packed with twists, turns, and Australiana, Outback is filled with unexpected corners and souvenirs from the Great Southern Land.
The Test Server for Burnt Horizon will go live this February 18 for PC.
