Third time’s the charm!
I remember writing last year (around the same time, no less) that Rainbow Six Siege would be getting a second year of DLC. It looks like Ubisoft did well enough with that extra content that Siege will get supported into 2018, as well. Ubisoft announced today that more new maps and operators will be coming to their tactical online only shooter early next year.
Year Three will feature eight new operators from around the world, two brand new maps based in Italy and Morocco and a complete overhaul/remake of an existing map with new art direction and level design. That doesn’t sound like a whole lot, but more content is always a plus. If you want to nab the Year Three Pass (which simply includes early access to each operator and map), it will become available on December 12. After that date, the Year Two pass will no longer be available for purchase and any exclusive customization items it offers will be gone.
The full reveal of each operator and both maps will be happening at the Six Invitational 2018 in Montreal, which will be held from Feburary 13th to the 18th. I think it’s safe to assume we’ll see the DLC sometime after that.
