The next major update for Rainbow 6 Siege is Operation Para Bellum which is rumoured to be releasing in the first week of June. The new map for that release has now been revealed as ‘Villa’. Operation Para Bellum will also feature two new operators, again rumoured to be Alibi and Maestro, both defenders.
The villa was specifically designed to offer a competitive showdown. It sets the stage for diverse gameplay, providing wide staircases, narrow tunnels, and secret hatches. Don’t let the lush décor fool you, the villa is deadly: some of its floors are destructible and can fully expose you. The land belongs to the Vinciguerra, a dangerous crime family known for their smuggling activities. The house is their retreat, where they lead a lavish lifestyle and collect rare art pieces. Now we catch the villa in a snapshot of time: Vinciguerras are burning documents and transporting their holdings before the big raid. But they’ve got wind of Operation Para Bellum and fled, leaving everything in disarray with vital information ready for the taking.
