Rainbow Six Siege’s Velvet Shell kicks off year two

Rainbow Six Siege will be kicking off its second year of operations with Velvet Shell, which includes a new map and two new Spanish operators. This first DLC of the second season will be broadcast live during the Six Invitational – the largest PC/Xbox One Rainbow Six Siege tournament in the world.


I’m really chuffed to see Rainbow Six Siege performing so well, especially after criticism of the decision not to include a full single player campaign. The TiX team regularly get together and play, usually with hilarious results involving Max and some kind of explosive device…

The livestream kicks off on February 3 and runs through until February 5.


  • Feb. 3, 10am EST / – 3pm GMT – PC and Xbox One quarter finals
  • Feb. 4, 10am EST / – 3pm GMT – PC and Xbox One semi-finals
  • Feb. 5, 10am EST / – 3pm GMT – Velvet Shell live demo and PC and Xbox One grand finals

And for those of you that live close to Montreal, tickets to the event are available now.
