Rainbow Six Siege is finally getting Aussie Operators


About time.

Rainbow Six Siege is finally getting Aussie Operators, Ubisoft has confirmed.

We first found out about the game’s upcoming Aussie additions from a cryptic tweet, below.

“Year Four Season One is all set to go, featuring two new operators from the SASR. One’s a stoic Attacker who’s just there to get the job done, and the other is a quick-witted Defender who’s in it for the guts and glory,” an update on the game’s website followed. “Two old mates from way back, they’ve signed up with Rainbow to bring a little Aussie know-how to the other side of the world. This includes a new device that’ll keep roaming Defenders on their toes, and one that’ll leave Attackers at a bit of a loss.

“That doesn’t mean they’ve left the sunburnt country completely behind them, though – there’s a slice of the red desert coming with them. A high-stakes chase has ended in a standoff at a service station halfway between here and nowhere, resulting in a map that’s packed with twists, turns, and Australiana. Try not to get distracted in the gift shop or dream of sampling the national specialties available at the fast food counter. Your teammates will thank you.”

While we’ll find out more about the Operators and other Aussie content at the Rainbow Six Invitational in Montreal this coming weekend, leaks suggest that the attacker is called Gridlock and the new defender is called Mozzie.

Rainbow Six: Siege is available now on Windows PC, Xbox One and PS4.
