Operation Dust Line, the free update for Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege will be available from May 11 on Xbox One, Playstation 4 and Windows PC. The second major content update introduces two new Operators, a new map, gameplay improvements and more.
In Operation Dust Line, two US Navy SEAL operators have been called to assist Team Rainbow to secure the Border –Valkyrie who’s equipped with the “Black Eye” Gyro Cam Mk2, a quick deployment sticky camera that gives her team a new eye in the sky, and Blackbeard who brings the TARS Mk 0, Transparent Armored Rifle Shield with him to battle, increasing his mobile protection without diminishing his field of vision.
Also, players can now customize their Operator’s loadout between each round, by selecting an operator and going to their loadout to select weapon, attachments, charms and headgear. This will allow for additional tactical choices between rounds.
The existing Operators have been tweaked as well – I.Q.’s unique gadget now has enhanced visual feedback, Montagne’s shield now adds side protection & Tachanka’s LMG is now easier to place and use.
Operation Dust Line also introduces gadget placement cancellation controls. By turning this feature ON in the Options menu, players can now cancel the placement of a gadget at any time. This feature will not only be more comfortable for the players (can be more reactive), but will also allow for another layer of gameplay and tactics (by playing mind games with their enemies).
After the final round, the winning team’s operators will be displayed to both the winning and losing teams, and an MVP for the match will be crowned for the ultimate bragging rights.
Season Pass holders will instantly receive the new Navy SEAL Operators and non-Season Pass owners will be able to unlock them using earned Renown currency or R6 Credits starting May 18.
Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege is currently available worldwide for Xbox One, Playstation 4 and Windows PC.
