Ubisoft has announced that the first season of Rainbow Six Siege’s The seventh year will finally introduce a new map. Emerald Plains will be the first permanent new addition to the map roster since Outback 2019. It will come after the introduction of a new defender moderator, Azami, who can patch broken surfaces destroyed with a bulletproof chemical compound.
Rainbow Six Siege’s seventh year content begins with Operation Demon Veil, an addition to the Emerald Plains map set by Ireland to the game. Unfortunately, the Emerald Plains won’t be available until mid-season, but when it does, it will provide a new country club-style location where attackers can attack the debris.
The large manor house has different decoration styles; The lower floors are modern and contemporary, while the upper floors have a more traditional design. Ubisoft hasn’t provided an in-depth look at the map yet, so it’s hard to tell what tactical opportunities it will present, but a new competitive map has been out for a while and should be welcomed by the community. .
Present at the start of the season is Azami, a new defender operator from Japan’s private security force. Wrapped in threads of fashion, she has the fascinating ability to repair destroyed walls, ceilings, and floors with large bulletproof discs known as Kiba Barriers. Deployed by throwing a knife that spews a rapidly expanding foam that hardens, they allow defenders to quickly patch holes in their defensive structure from range. This is especially useful against vertical attacks, as historically there’s been very little defenders have been able to do when enemies start shooting in from above. Now, trapdoors and holes in the ceiling can be quickly patched up with a bulletproof foam circle. Kiba Barriers can be deployed on any surface, so can also be used to cover windows, doors and generally to break lines of sight with bulletproof surfaces. However, foam can resist explosives, so it’s not as stiff as wall reinforcement.
Azami is a mid-speed, average-healthy rider and is armed with an SMG – the 9×19VSN, as used by Kapkan – or the ACS12 shotgun used by Alibi and Maestro. Her side weapon is the D-50 Desert Eagle, and she has the choice of barbed wire or an impact grenade as her secondary device.
In addition to a new operator and map, Operation Demon Veil adds several important new gameplay changes and features. The most radical of these is the Attacker Repick, which allows the attacking team to vary the loading force and even the operator during the preparation phase. This means that attackers can change their characters with each new round of the match, adapting to the tactics used by the defending team. Attacker Repick will be available in Quick Play, Unranked, Ranked, and Pro game types.
There’s also a brand new game mode, permanently appearing as Team Deathmatch. An unusual fit for Siege, it’s designed to offer a much more casual experience in Rainbow Six’s collection of hardcore activities. Team Deathmatch matches last 5 minutes or end when a team reaches 75 lives. The game mode uses spawns, and the player can change controllers between spawns.
This season will also bring Match Replays to the console, allowing players to store 2 hours worth of match replays on their systems so they can be studied and dissected later, as well. like balancing updates to Valkyrie and Goyo (whose device no longer uses a deployable shield and is instead just a flammable container that attaches to the floor or wall), improvements to the player behavior and anti-cheat system, and – as usual – a limited-time event and supplement to the video game. The season is also making every weapon available for all primary weapons.
So far a release date has not been announced for Year 7, Part One, but traditionally the years of Siege begin in March, so expect more details on the release date in the coming weeks. the coming weeks.
