TOM CLANCY’S RAINBOW SIX® SIEGE REVEALS OPERATION WIND BASTION
Discover the Moroccan mountains in the all-new Fortress map alongside two new Operators in Year 3 Season 4
SYDNEY, Australia — November 19th , 2018 — Ubisoft announced the full details of the fourth and last season of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six® Siege third year of content. Operation Wind Bastion introduces an all-new Attacker and a Defender, Nomad and Kaid respectively, as well as a new map called Fortress, which is a military training facility and also Kaid’s home. Furthermore, in Year 3 Season 4, the Rainbow Six Siege shop will be redesigned to improve the user experience. For example, the shop will feature a new full screen view for weapons, a new light theme, and the possibility for players to browse left and right within a category among many other changes.
In this new season, one Attacker and one Defender, Nomad and Kaid will join the Rainbow Six Siege Operator line-up. Armed with her AK-74M and ARX200, Nomad uses her airjab launcher and proximity triggered air blast grenade to propel Defenders out of cover and expose them to the attacking team. In the meantime, Kaid uses his Rtila Electro claw to electrify all metallic objects in proximity: reinforced walls, barbed wire, deployable shields. His AUG A3 and TCSG12 makes him a powerful Defender and counter to hard breacher.
In addition to these two new Rainbow recruits, players will be able to explore the new Fortress map, 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.
The Test Server for Operation Wind Bastion will go live on November 19. The Test Server is an alternative version of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege, allowing players to test upcoming gameplay features that will make their way into the main game itself. Since this is a testing environment, a consistent gameplay experience is not guaranteed on the Test Server. Players are invited to submit the issues they encounter on the Test Server on the R6 Fix platform at r6fix.ubi.com. The Test Server is exclusive to Windows PC.

About Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege
Inspired by real-world counter-terrorist organisations, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege puts players in the middle of lethal close-quarter confrontations. For the first time in a Rainbow Six game, players will engage in sieges, a new style of assault where enemies have the means to transform their environments into modern strongholds while Rainbow Six teams lead the assault to breach the enemy’s position. Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege gives players unprecedented control over their ability to fortify their position by reinforcing walls and floors, using barbed wire and deployable shields, laying mines and more, or to breach the enemies’ position using observation drones, setting charges, rappelling and more. The fast pace and uniqueness of each siege sets a new bar for intense firefights, strategic gameplay and competitive gaming.
