Rainbow Six Siege Operation Blood Orchid launching September 5th

News PlayStation Xbox One Xbox One S

Ubisoft have announced that Operation Blood Orchid, the Year 2, Season 3 add-on content for Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege, will launch on September 5th on PS4, Xbox One and Windows PC. The Theme Park map will be available at no additional cost for all players. Starting on September 5th, season pass holders will be able to access three new operators and their signature weapons skins. All other players will be able to unlock the new content starting September 12th using Renown or R6 Credits.

In the new map of Operation Blood Orchid, players will have to raid an abandoned theme park, identified by the Special Duties Unit (SDU) – also known as the Flying Tigers – as a criminal organisation’s nest for narcotic manufacturing. After establishing a connection with the Hong Kong Triad, two Flying Tigers are chosen to lead a lethal raid in the Theme Park, a colourful and eclectic map filled with dynamic and fast-paced face-offs.

To find out about the three new operators, check out the news piece from a week ago, which details them, their strengths and their gadgets.

To mark the culmination of Operation Health, Operation Blood Orchid will be the largest update for Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege ever deployed, bringing fixes and improvements to the game, including an updated lighting system, data clean-ups on operators, optimized stability, reduced load times and a smaller memory footprint. New and improved servers will also be deployed around the launch of Season 3 to enhance stability, connectivity and overall performance.
