In a press release, Ubisoft has blown the door wide open in terms of the Rainbow Six Siege Operation Wind Bastion new operators!
An all-new attacker and defender are being introduced to the game’s fourth and last season, and they’re named Nomad and Kain respectively. There’s also a new map called Fortress, which is a military training facility and is Kain’s home.
In this new season, one Attacker and one Defender, Nomad and Kaid will join the Rainbow Six Siege Operator lineup. Armed with her AK-74M and ARX200, Nomad uses her airjab launcher and proximity triggered air blast grenade to propel Defenders out of cover and expose them to the attacking team. In the meantime, Kaid uses his Rtila Electroclaw to electrify all metallic objects in proximity: reinforced walls, barbed wire, deployable shields. His AUG A3 and TCSG12 makes him a powerful Defender and counter to hard breacher.
Also of note, Ubisoft says that the Rainbow Six Siege shop will be redesigned to “improve the user experience,” with one example mentioning that the shop will feature a new full screen view for weapons, a new light theme, and the possibility for players to browse left and right within a category.
Those interested in trying out the new operators, the Test Servers for Operation Wind Bastion will go live on November 19.
