Operation Shifting Tides Unveiled for 'Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege'
Ubisoft has revealed details of Operation Shifting Tides, the final update for Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege Year 4 and it’s a doozy, including a pair of Operators and a rework of the Theme Park map.
Kali, an Attacker from India, comes equipped a CSRX 300 sniper rifle that breaches barricades and hatches with a single shot and comes with an under-barrel mounted LV Explosive Lance – her gadget – that will destroy all gadgets on both sides of breakable or reinforced surfaces. Wamai, a Defender from Kenya, uses a Mag-NET system as a gadget to attract enemy projectiles, neutralizing Attackers’ grenades and projectile gadgets.
The Theme Park map has also been reworked considerably, and there are other tweaks like a limb penetration system to be tested on the Test Servers, which are now live.
Here’s the press release:
TOM CLANCY’S RAINBOW SIX® SIEGE REVEALS OPERATION SHIFTING TIDES
Discover the Operators Kali and Wamai, and a reworked version of the map Theme Park
Montreal — November 11, 2019 — Yesterday, at the Pro League Finals Tokoname, Ubisoft announced the full details of the fourth, and last season, of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six® Siege Year 4. Operation Shifting Tides introduces Kali and Wamai — a new Attacker and Defender — from India and Kenya, in addition to an entirely reworked Theme Park map.
Indian Attacker Kali and Kenyan Defender Wamai are the two new operators coming in Operation Shifting Tides. They met in the NIGHTHAVEN Special Intervention Company, a private military group owned and led by Kali. She is equipped with a CSRX 300 sniper rifle that can breach barricades and hatches in a single shot. Her gadget is its under-barrel, the LV Explosive Lance, that destroys all gadgets on both sides of breakable and reinforced surfaces. Wamai is Kali’s best operator at NIGHTHAVEN. His gadget, the Mag-NET System, can attracts enemy projectiles and have them detonate at its location. Wamai can make Attackers’ grenades and projectile gadgets useless, or better, turn them against their users.
In addition to these two new Operators, players will be able to explore a reimagined Theme Park map, which is back and newly reworked. The Rail Platform has been removed and the East and West sections have been brought closer together. Inside the building, the East section has largely evolved, primarily the downstairs area. Gargoyle and Haunting Dining bomb sites are replaced with the Throne Room and Armory pair. The new Gong Room in this area also becomes the main entrance, while the Arcade Entrance is now blocked.
Additional updates include the following:
- Limb penetration system has been implemented
- Rappel exist will request a prompt from player to enter rappel
- Operators price decrease (Hibana, Echo, Dokkaebi, Vigil, Zofia, Nomad and Kaid)
The Test Server for Operation Shifting Tides is going live on November 11. 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 [link: here]. The Test Server is exclusive to Windows PC.
