Operation Skull Rain for Rainbow Six Siege out this week

New DLC releasing tomorrow, along with a patch that contains new game mode

Posted on

Ubisoft has confirmed that Operation Skull Rain expansion for Rainbow Six Siege is coming August 2.

As with previous Rainbow Six Siege expansions, Operation Skull Rain includes two new Operators: Caveira and Capitão, both from Brazil’s Batalhão de Operações Policiais Especiais (BOPE). The new Operators will be instantly available to Season Pass holders, who will have exclusive access to them for the first seven days.

Caveira is the defensive Operator; she possesses the “Silent Step” skill that enables her to sneak up on enemies to immobilize and then interrogate them to reveal their teammates’ location.

As the attacker, Capitão carries a tactical crossbow that can fire asphyxiating bolts that burn oxygen within a certain radius, as well as micro smoke grenades that can mask positions and team movements.

Operation Skull Rain will also have a new map. Set in a Brazilian favela, this new map supports exterior shell destruction, making it Rainbow Six Siege’s most destructible map to date. The new map will be free for all players.

Finally, the development team will also add several tweaks and improvements to the game. One of them is the addition of a Tactical Realism custom game mode. By popular request, the Tactical Realism mode prevents players from marking enemies, allowing only the timer, compass, gadget, and weapon panels to be visible in the HUD. Additionally, there are no kill confirmations, and more realistic magazine management will be put into play.

A new angled grip attachment and a new surrender system will also be introduced in the update. The angled grip makes the transition between hip fire and ADS much faster, creating a faster-paced style of combat. Meanwhile, the new surrender system makes it possible for your team to surrender during a ranked match with a majority vote, but matches can only be surrendered before the third round.

Rainbow Six Siege was released last year for PC, Xbox One and PS4.
