UBISOFT® reveals the first details of “Operation Grim Sky” which will feature two new Operators, one American Attacker, and one Defender hailing from Great Britain. Operation Grim Sky will also mark the first ever Map Rework, one of the development team’s key commitments to enrich Siege players’ experience for Year 3.
Operation Grim Sky’s two Operators may associate with two different CTUs, but they are both joining Rainbow’s Urban Tactical Response Team, codenamed Grim Sky (or GSUTR).
The first Operator is a Defender from Great Britain. She’s a tough police officer who’s an expert on mob behavior and snatch-squad tactics. She knows she belongs on the front line and she won’t tolerate any nonsense.
The second Operator is an American Attacker, a specialist with a remarkably sharp mind when it comes to tactical operations. He has seen the worst in Kabul. Despite it all, he fell in love with the city. Legendary for his surgical precision, he remains an enigma within Rainbow Six.
HEREFORD BASE, an iconic map inspired by the training camp from the Tom Clancy’s novel and among the first maps introduced during the Rainbow Six Siege Beta back in 2015, was selected to benefit from a full rework in Operation Grim Sky. This rework will include a new visual identity, layout and architecture. The map will still feel familiar to the players, but with the rework, Hereford Base may be considered as a new map.
The full reveal of Year 3 Season 3 content for Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Siege will be made on August 17-19 during the Six Major Paris, the largest Rainbow Six Esports competition in Europe to date.
