Ubisoft announced Operation Para Bellum for Rainbow Six Siege will be available next month giving players another reason to keep playing the popular multiplayer-centric first-person shooter. A new video flaunting the new map and Operators was also revealed.
Operation Para Bellum will see the release of a brand new map, Villa, set in the Italian countryside, as well as two Italian G.I.S. Operators, Alibi and Maestro. Alibi is an infiltration specialist with the ability to drop up to three holograms used to confuse and mark the enemy. Maestro will have a remote access turret that is bulletproof, can see through smoke, and shoots low-powered lasers; it can only be destroyed using an explosive, destroying the surface it is planted on, or Sledge’s hammer.
The new update will also introduce the “Pick & Ban” system that will allow you to pick an Operator to ban that may throw off your opposition’s initial strategy. This new feature will certainly change the meta of competitive play in some significant ways.
Here are some other additions coming with Operation Para Bellum:
- Deployable Bullet Proof Cameras
- New Counter Defuser Animation
- Dropshotting Adjustments
- Weapon Sight Misalignment Adjustments
- New Observation Tool Management
- Operator Speed Adjustments
- Echo Buff
- Clubhouse Map Buff
You’ll be able to check out these new features in the Rainbow Six Siege Test Server starting tomorrow, May 22. The Test Server is only available for PC players.
Rainbow Six Siege is available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. If you want to check it out before Operation Para Bellum releases, you can purchase the game on Amazon right now.
