Rainbow Six Siege – Operation Blood Orchid coming in August

News Xbox One Xbox One S

Ubisoft have announced that the latest update to the magnificent Rainbow Six Siege will be appearing on our Xbox’s on August 29th. The developer temporarily postponed the regular season updates earlier this year in order to launch Operation Health, a series of updates designed to fix the various bugs and server issues that do affect the game.

The new season will be  revealed at the Rainbow Six Pro League finals at Gamescom, but what we do know is that it will feature a new map and three new operators, two from Hong Kong and one from Polands GROM unit.

The new map may be set in a theme park, definitely in Honk Kong, as the teaser image looks to feature an abandoned rollercoaster. There has been no official confirmation from Ubisoft but a similar location was seen briefly, and probably unintentionally, on the Rainbow Six Siege online tactical board.

The new Operation Blood map will be available for free to all players on August 29, as will the new operators for season pass holders. Players who don’t have the pass will have to wait until September 5. The Rainbow Six Pro League finals will take place August 25-26.
