Well folks, I know I’ve certainly been excited for this moment, Ubisoft has released a teaser video revealing the first new operator of the ‘Year 2‘ content for Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Siege.

As part of the Six Invitational Event, over the coming week Ubi will reveal even more about the first batch of ‘Year 2’ content coming in the Velvet Shell update. Velvet Shell will bring us Spanish operators and new maps, in which the first new operator seems to be an Attacker by the call sign of Jackal. This fella seems to have the ability to track other operator’s footprints using some sort of visual overlay, which will certainly be an interesting addition to the current balance that the game has.

Stay tuned for more news over the coming days regarding Rainbow Six: Siege news.
