Rainbow Six Siege is set to go to the 'Land Down Under' as they open their fourth year with Operation Burnt Horizon.
Just like previous seasons, the Australia set Burnt Horizon will feature new operators and features after the culmination of The Six Invitational Finals on February 17. So far, the initial unveil had given fans Mozzie and Gridlock as two new operators hailing from the country’s Special Air Service Regiment (SASR).
"Year Four Season One is all set to go, featuring two new operators from the SASR. One’s a stoic Attacker who’s just there to get the job done, and the other is a quick-witted Defender who’s in it for the guts and glory. Two old mates from way back, they’ve signed up with Rainbow to bring a little Aussie know-how to the other side of the world. This includes a new device that’ll keep roaming Defenders on their toes, and one that’ll leave Attackers at a bit of a loss."
Burnt Horizon had leaked way back late 2018 with the identity of the two operators.
As per previous leaks, Gridlock is an attacker who place a web trap that damages and alerts attackers on defenders who run into it. Mozzie meanwhile is a defender whose gadget allows her to take control of enemy drones that come into contact with it.
New Map: Service Station
A new map is also coming to Siege with Service Station - an isolated barren landscape in the Outback centered on a gas station. Teasers suggest weathered aesthetics and interconnected buildings housing close quarters combat.
A high-stakes chase has ended in a standoff at a service station halfway between here and nowhere, resulting in a map that’s packed with twists, turns, and Australiana. Try not to get distracted in the gift shop or dream of sampling the national specialties available at the fast food counter. Your teammates will thank you.
Fans will get to see the full reveal of Burnt Horizon right at the center of action during the Six Invitational 2019.
Ubisoft is yet to reveal the official release date for the Year 4 Season 1 patch, but following previous operations, there would be a two week Technical Test Server (TTS) deployment on by the end of The Six Invitational. Therefore, fans can expect the updates to rollout by March on all available platforms.
