Adjust Comment Print

Rainbow Six Siege Para Bellum is launching on May 19.

Yesterday we saw the new Italian map titled "Villa" that is coming with the Rainbow Six Siege: Operation Para Bellum, today Ubisoft North America has released a short video teasing the first Italian operator Alibi.

As part of the Year Three Season Two update Operation Para Bellum, the Villa map features narrow tunnels, secret hatches, wide staircases, and destructible floors which can leave players fully exposed. Interestingly enough, there will also be a new Pick and Ban system, which is meant to "provides an extra layer of strategy between teams, as each side tries to counter their opponents' picks during the banning phase".

The Pick & Ban system is designed to create a competitive atmosphere amongst teams. But, we already know all that from the previous announcement.

Both Yokai drones will have their max charges reduced from 3 to 2, and recharge time between shots will be increased to 20 seconds. Ubisoft is also modifying the speed of certain operators, slowing certain ones down while speeding certain ones up. In an act that demonstrated their continued support for the surprisingly enjoyable game, Ubisoft announced that Siege will receive a new map based on a luxurious Tuscan villa, appropriately dubbed Villa. It is a huge mansion in the Italian countryside and along with that, two Italian operators will be added to the game. For more detailed information, you can visit here.
