'Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege' (ALL) Operation Blood Orchid Announced, Debut At Gamescom

by Rainier on Aug. 11, 2017 @ 9:04 a.m. PDT

Inspired by real world counter-terrorist organizations, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege puts players in the middle of lethal close-quarters confrontations.

For the first time in a Tom Clancy’s 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, deployable shields and mines, and more - or breach the enemies’ using observation drones, sheet charges, rappelling, and more. The fast pace, lethality and uniqueness of each siege sets a new bar for intense firefights, strategic gameplay and competitive gaming.

Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege also features a technological breakthrough that redefines the way players interact with a game environment. Leveraging Ubisoft Montreal’s proprietary Realblast engine, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege incorporates procedural destruction that is realistic and unscripted, meaning the environment reacts authentically, distinctively and dynamically, based on variables like the caliber of bullets or the amount of explosives used. This advance allows players to leverage destruction in meaningful ways. Walls can be shattered, opening new lines of fire. Ceilings and floors can be breached to create new access points. This ability to modify the level design in real time enables players to create new gameplay opportunities directly within the game level.

Ubisoft announced that Operation Blood Orchid, the second Year 2 map of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege will be available on August 29 for Xbox One, PS4 and PC.

After a focus on improving the game’s health for the past 3 months, this content update introduces a both a free news map and three brand new operators (2 from Hong Kong and one from Poland) as well as a series of customization items.

This time, three new Operators will be available for Season Pass holders from August 29 and to all players on September 5.

To learn more about our upcoming Operators and Blood Orchid update, be sure to tune in for the livestream during the Pro League finals at Gamescom on August 26 at 6.15pm CET.

On August 25 and 26, the eight best teams from Europe, North America and Latin America will compete for the Year 2 Season 2 Pro League Champion title in the ESL Arena at Gamescom in Köln, Germany.

With a $237,500 total prize pool on the line and two days of live showcases revealing new content, developer and community panels as well as the first live demo of the new Blood Orchid map, this season final promises to be thrilling.

Key Features

  • Counter terrorist operatives are trained to handle extreme situations, such as hostage rescue, with surgical precision. As “short range” specialists, their training is concentrated on indoor environments. Operating in tight formations, they are experts of close quarter combat, demolition, and coordinated assaults.
  • For the first time in Rainbow Six, players will engage in sieges, a brand-new style of assault. Enemies now have the means to transform their environments into strongholds: they can trap, fortify, and create defensive systems to prevent breach by Rainbow teams. To face this challenge, players have a level of freedom unrivaled by any previous Rainbow Six game. Combining tactical maps, observation drones, and a new rappel system, Rainbow teams have more options than ever before to plan, attack, and diffuse these situations.
  • Destruction is at the heart of the siege gameplay. Leveraging Ubisoft Montreal’s proprietary Realblast engine, players now have the unprecedented ability to destroy environments. Walls can be shattered, opening new lines of fire, and ceiling and floors can be breached, creating new access points. Everything in the environment reacts realistically, dynamically, and uniquely based on the size and caliber of bullets you are using or the amount of explosives you have set. In Rainbow Six Siege, destruction is meaningful and mastering it is often the key to victory.

Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege is currently available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
