Rainbow Six Siege will soon get its 'most competitive map to date'


Ubisoft is teasing Operation Para Bellum

Next on the docket for Rainbow Six Siege is Operation Para Bellum, the Year Three Season Two content update that will bring a pair of defense-oriented Operators, another gadget, buffs for Echo and Clubhouse, a Pick & Ban system, and a new map that Ubisoft is calling its “most competitive” so far.

“On the gameplay front, expect a series of enhancements,” said the team. “We are adjusting how dropshotting is handled and implementing a new counter defuser animation.”

As for Pick & Ban, the system “provides an extra layer of strategy between teams, as each side tries to counter their opponents’ picks during the banning phase.” To shake things up a bit more, each team is allowed a final, secret-to-them Operator swap as their sixth pick. You can play dirty.

Ubisoft plans to hold its full reveal for Para Bellum during the Pro League Finals on May 19 – 20.
