Rainbow Six Siege Operation Black Ice releases February 2

DLC News Xbox One

The first piece of free planned content for Rainbow Six Siege will release on February 2 for Season Pass Owners, and a week later for everyone else. The DLC includes two new Operators, a new map, some new weapons skins and gameplay upgrades.

Joining the Operator ranks are the Canadian Joint Task Force, both characters come locked and loaded with their own weapons and gadgets and Season Pass owners will get them first, and without the need to unlock them. If you don’t own the pass, you can unlock the Operators for 600 Rainbow Six credits or 25,000 renown – that’s a lot of grinding!

Since reviewing Siege, the online shooter has nudged out my other online games to become my go to game – my group of friends have also followed suit – with nightly custom games of Siege taking us well into the early hours of the morning.

Although the DLC was expected to land in January the roadmap of Rainbow Six Siege content clearly shows four windows of content – January-March, April-June, July-September and August-December – surely we can’t play the delayed card can we?


I've been gaming for longer than I care to remember and spent four years writing for another XCN website leading a 10 strong team. Now I'm in charge of TiX alongside Dave Moran – I hope you enjoy what we do!
