Ubisoft has released a slew of information today pertaining to the sixth year of its scalpel-precise multiplayer shooter Rainbow Six Siege. As popular today as it ever was, Siege intends to kick off the new generation of gaming with a bang, offering a brand facelift, new in-game mechanics, core gameplay changes, and another year of new operators, gadgets, and map revisions. Year Six kicks off in March 16 with its first season: Operation Crimson Heist.
The new season brings with it a new Attacker, Santiago Lucero, better known by his call-sign “Flores”. Raised in Buenos Aires, Lucero found his calling early in life as a master thief and cat-burglar, a talent which fast found him a role within Argentina’s organized crime scene. However, upon seeing the damage and misery the syndicate was bringing to the lower classes, Lucero turned his back on his bosses, seeking personal redemption by only plying his nocturnal trade on the powerful and corrupt.
