Ubisoft has spilled the beans on final season of Rainbow Six: Siege’s year three of content - Operation Wind Bastion.
In Wind Bastion, aside from the free map called Fortress, players gain two new operators; the Attacker Nomad, and the Defender Kaid.
The Attacker Nomad brings with her the airjab launcher and proximity triggered air blast grenade, which pushes Defenders and putting them in a state where they have to recover from the blast, leaving them vulnerable for a few seconds. With her breaching the objective, defenders will have to think twice before hunkering down at a secured spot. Her push effect affects multiple Defenders and can affected Defender can go through breakable walls, which can lead to hilarious situations. The blast from her gadget does no damage.
The Defender Kaid is equipped with the gadget called the Rtila Electro Claw, a throwable gadget that can attach to all surfaces in the map. Once attached to a surface, the Electro Claw electrifies all metallic objects in its proximity: reinforced walls, barbed wire, deployable shields, even reinforced hatches below or above. Kaid is similar to what Bandit provides in the game but with more options to reinforce your defense. Kaid has three Rtila Electro Claws and has a slow build up time before the gadget electrifies other objects.
The new map coming for free is called Fortress. In Ubisoft’s words, Fortress is a “mudbrick Kasbah inspired by the iconic architecture from the southern region of Morocco. It is a military training facility that features a good rotation between floors, an accessible roof and many dangerous lines of sight and flanking routes.”.
No release date was given for the last season of Year Three, but you can try out Operation Wind Bastion on Rainbow Six’s test servers starting this week.
Ubisoft will now give players Watch Dogs 2, Ghost Recon: Wildlands, or Far Cry: Primal for free if you pre-order The Division 2 on PC.
In Rainbow Six: Siege, there’s a steep learning curve to climb to become a valuable asset to a team. Map knowledge, Operator mastery, easy and quick call outs - all of these are essential to improving at Siege, and the plethora of necessary skills are a major reason why this is one of the growing esports titles today.
The Division 2’s Dark Zone is just how you remembered it, just smaller and divided into three locations.
Epic Games was able to strike a deal with Ubisoft to launch The Division 2 on their new online store instead of the biggest one available today - Steam.
Operation Wind Bastion is the last season of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Siege’s third year of content. Players get operators Kaid and Nomad, as well as the mall called Fortress.
Even without all the DLC that Ubisoft intends to deliver in the months ahead, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is an all-consuming experience guaranteed to keep players addicted for weeks, months or even years.
