The final Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege free expansion for 2018 was announced by Ubisoft today, revealing that the game will be heading to Morocco for the new content. Titled Wind Bastion, the new operation will deliver the routine one map and two operator serving.
Although we have to wait until the Pro League Finals kicks off on November 17 for the full reveal, today the studio gave a first look at the upcoming injection of content.
The two new operators come from the Moroccan Groupe d'Intervention de La Gendarmerie Royale (GIGR) special forces regiment. While we don't have their names, gadget information, or even a proper look at them yet, here's how Ubisoft described the upcoming two arrivals:
The first Operator is a Defender and the Commander himself who is as stoic as the mountains are immovable. He is stationed at the country’s legendary kasbah, a training ground that has shocked and awed thousands of incoming soldiers. Strict and imposing, he inspires respect and has taken it upon himself to guide the future of Moroccan Special Forces.
The second Operator is an Attacker who travels wherever the wind takes her. She’s among the few explorers who can cross the Sahara, climb up the Alps, trek through Asia’s rainforests, march along the Arctic Circle…and still return to her unit in operational shape. Perceptive and resourceful, she’s an expert on environmental operations with a knack for pushing the enemy back.
Meanwhile, Fortress will arrive as the new map. Modeled after an actual Morrocan Kasbah (citadel), the map will apparently feature "unprecedented roof access" as well as a nearby oasis.
There isn't a release date attached to Rainbow Six Siege Operation Wind Bastion yet, so expect more details to arrive during the aforementioned Pro League Finals. However, we do know that the controversial asset changes that were announced last week will arrive with this update as the game prepares to enter the Chinese market.
