Ubisoft announced the Rainbow Six Siege: Operation Phantom Sight DLC as part of its second season of year 4 content during today’s Pro League Finals in Milan, Italy.
Operation Phantom Sight introduces Nokk, a new Attacker armed with an FMG-9 and SIX12-SD who uses her high-tech HEL Presence Reduction gadget to navigate behind enemy lines, invisible to cameras and drones. OPS also introduces a new Defender, Warden, who uses his “Glance Smartglasses” to enhance his vision to give him better visibility in smoke and immunity to flashes while remaining still – he uses an M590A1 and MPX to make him a powerful anchor and entry denier.
OPS also includes a major rework of the Kafe Dostoyevsky Moscow map, which includes a redesigned first floor, new bomb sites on the second floor, and other updates aimed to improve replayablity and gameplay opportunities. Other features that will be introduced in the new season include updates to Reverse Friendly Fire, a reworked ranked playlist and a new in-game storefront.
The test server (an alternate version of Rainbow Six Siege that allows players to test upcoming gameplay features) for OPS goes live on May 21 – this test server is exclusive to PC players. OPS is included as part of the Year 4 Pass available on PC, PS4 and Xbox One, with two more seasons set to drop this year.
In our 2018 Rainbow Six Siege review, we called the game “Great” saying “Rainbow Six Siege’s focus on teamwork and strategy over just aiming prowess sets it apart in exciting ways, and the constant stream of new maps and operators have made it a wonderfully varied FPS.”
