Ubisoft has teased its upcoming Aussie-themed Year Four Season One update Operation Burnt Horizon for its popular shooter Rainbow Six Siege.
The new update, like every season update, will include two operators. According to Ubisoft, the first operator will be an Attacker who is”just there to get the job done” with the second being a Defender who is “in it for the guts and glory.” Although there are no specifics on the new operators, the Attacker will have a device that will “keep roaming Defenders on their toes” while the Defender will have an ability that will “leave Attackers at a bit of a loss.”
Since the theme this time around is centered around Australia, the new map will be set in a service station down under. There isn’t much to go on but there will be a gift shop and a fast food count, so you know, get excited.
Although Ubisoft is being tight-lipped about Operation Burnt Horizon, we may have got our first look of the two operators. According to the Reddit post from Doc Main, assets were found on the Rainbow Six Siege website naming the characters Mozzie and Gridlock. Whether these names or models are final or even real is not yet known.
Operation Burnt Horizon will be formally revealed on February 17 during the Six Invitational in Montreal. Between February 15 and February 17, 16 of the best Rainbow Six Siege teams will compete to become the World Champion and win the largest prize pool in the game’s history. Here are all 16 teams, as well as their corresponding groups:
- Faze Clan
- Team Reciprocity
- Ninjas in Pyjamas
- Team Empire
- SpaceStation Gaming
- G2 Esports
- MockIt Esports
- Team Liquid
- Mantis FPS
- Evil Geniuses
- LeStream Esports
The last update that came to Rainbow Six Siege was Year Three Season Four’s Operation Wind Bastion. This brought two Operators Kaid and Nomad as well as the Fortress map in Morocco. It also brought Pro Team BDUs and Headgears, new shop navigational display and a fullscreen view for weapons.
Rainbow Six Siege is available for Xbox One, PS4, and PC right now.
