Rainbow Six Siege’s Operation Skull Rain expansion is coming to PS4, Xbox One, and PC on August 2. As with previous Rainbow Six Siege expansions, Operation Skull Rain includes two new Operators: Caveira and Capitão, both from Brazil’s Batalhão de Operações Policiais Especiais (BOPE). The new Operators will be instantly available to Season Pass holders, who will have exclusive access to them for the first seven days.

mmmmm what do guys think about the voting to end the match in ranked? Are people going to vote for the match to end being 2-0 down although the match can still be won and will players still receive points if it ends early.....I really hope so otherwise it will be a big waste of time.

Was just reading about this. Brazilian operators, looks cool, suffocating crossbow and ninja sneaky skills, got to love that. Mostly looking forward to the new, highly destructible favela map. Loved to play favela on coop in Cod MW2, on splitscreen.

The surrender option is interesting for competitive gaming I guess, which is probably why they added it. Though I do see the advantage of being able to quit without penalty when you're 2 vs 5 after 2 rounds. Actually experienced being 1 vs 5 for 2 rounds in ranked. I would def have surrendered if I had the option, not much fun in that.

New map vid:

Looks amazing. Seems they're showing a lot of exterior, wondering if this map can be different from the others with regards to the defense inside/attack outside setup of the maps to date. Would be interesting if the defensive perimiter was more like a fortress' walls, and the interior was a mix of small sheds and buildings inside these walls. Would make for a very different game experience between night and day on the map. Anyway, can't wait to try this one.


Some info on further plans and patching:

New anti-cheat (mostly for PC I expect, much hacking there), BattlEye.
Improvement on kill cam accuracy.
Thingys done to prevent people from sticking their foot through walls, and other, more exploitable glitches.

Personally, I'm soft enough to appreciate this little people pleaser: - Looking to the future beyond Season 3, Marquis wants to reiterate that “Siege is designed to last for years”.

Let's hope they can walk the walk too.

One of the best split screen games I ever played. There was spec ops missions where one of you would be on the ground and the other giving air support from a chopper gunner........good times.

Back to topic......Come on Grrowl, we know you like the challenge of taking down 5 enemies in 1 vs 5. :wink: At least you don't have to worry about getting killed by your team.

Yeah, you know me - you can hear it in my girlish shriek of nervous "joy", while I reload as they rush me from 5 different directions before I finally accidentally kill myself with a nitro charge. I'll take an MP bullet to the back of my head over that every day of the week ;)

Between Pulse, Caveira, and valkyrie...roaming is going to be ridiculous.

What's this interrogating business? I'd die before I betray my brothers in arms! Unless she starts pulling my fingernails, then I break bigtime. Hate that sh*t.

Will have to "professionally" hit you with friendly fire to prevent you from leaking intel.

Make sure you take turns, then - don't want to get you banned.

Think they call it "excessive team killing" (as if there is any other kind), so unless you kill multiple times in a match or in a session, I think you're safe. Ish.
