Rainbow Six Siege Skull Rain Ubisoft

You can now download Rainbow Six Siege's third major update on the PS4, Xbox One and Windows PC. It's got new operators, a new map and new gameplay features.

Skull Rain brings you Brazil's elite BOPE: Caveira and Capitão. Caveira is known for being awesome in interrogating while Capitão fights with a tactical crossbow. Season pass holders get dibs on these two operators for seven days. After the exclusive period, Caveira and Capitão will then be available to all players on August 9. You can unlock them with Renown or R6 credits. 

A new Favela map is also included, and is "the most destructible to date", according to Ubisoft. It's free and is now open to all players.

In terms of gameplay, the development team changed it up a bit by adding new stuff here and there:

  • Surrender System for Ranked Matches
    • If the competition becomes too rough, players can now cast a vote for their team to surrender during a Ranked match. This will end the game and allow players to move onto another match. This new feature will be available prior to the 3rd round.
  • Custom Game Mode: Tactical Realism
    • Introducing a new gameplay mode available in Custom Games, Tactical Realism was created to further immersion where tension runs high as players must carefully assess, coordinate, and communicate their movements at all time.
  • New Attachment: The Angled Grip
    • Catering to a variety of playstyles, the angled grip accelerates the transition between hip fire and ADS, which allows for an aggressive ad fast-paced playstyle.

Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege is currently available worldwide for Xbox One, PS4 and Windows PC. If you haven't yet, you can check out the two new BOPE operators in action and the new Favela map  in this trailer below.
