Ubisoft detailed Rainbow Six Siege: Operation Void Edge update over the weekend by confirming two new operators, a map and gameplay rework, new elite skins and more.
New Operators Iana and Oryx
First, the new Operators are the Dutch Attacker Iana and the Jordanian Defender Oryx. While studying for her systems engineering doctorate, Iana pioneered topographical mapping software that allowed her to generate a holographic representation of herself that she can command with her Gemini Replicator.
Once she activates her hologram, she directly goes inside and can control it. It can move and produces sound like she would, but it obviously cannot shoot, melee or use secondary gadgets.
Oryx is an Operator that doesn’t use a gadet though his ability, Remah Dash, has more than one application. Its speed allows him to roam efficiently and cover short distances with unprecedented swiftness.
In addition, it can also be used to knock down opponents or dash through breakable walls, though at the cost of part of his health. Finally, Oryx is also able to climb up hatches, giving him a significant tactical advantage over his opponents.
Reworked Oregon map
The update will be including a reworked Oregon map.
Additional updates and changesNotable changes include expansions to the basement area, attic, and office tower. Additional changes can be experienced throughout the map, all with the intent of evolving the gameplay meta.
The update will also be including:
- Debris replication tweak
- Changes to attackers’ drone spawn location
- Revamped player hub
- Changes to Lesion and Twitch
- Addition of Caveira Elite set
