Following the initial reveal that put Sam Fisher as the next operator for the upcoming Rainbow Six Seige event, Ubisoft has now announced the full details of the third season, including an entirely reworked Chalet map and additional gameplay features.
In Operation Shadow Legacy, players will be able to rediscover Sam Fisher as an Attacker named Zero, equipped with a new gadget, the Argus Launcher, a two-way drill camera. The cameras are launched to pierce soft or reinforced walls, windows, and hatches or stick to any surface. Once in the camera, the Attacker can rotate the camera’s vision to see the other side of the wall. Each camera is equipped with one laser charge, usable to deal damages to Defenders or destroy gadgets. Sam Fisher is also coming with his unique weapon the SC3000K & melee weapon: the Karambit.
Players will also be able to explore a newly reworked Chalet map. With an improved first and second floors along with a traversable roof, map dynamics will now be much more important.
Additional game updates include the following:
- Ping 2.0
- Map Ban
- New secondary gadget: the Hard Breach Charge
- New Optics and Sights Colors
- New Reinforcement Pool
