Rainbow Six: Siege Skull Rain DLC coming August 2

Two new operators included.

The latest DLC for Rainbow Six: Siege will be called Skull Rain and it's heading to PC, PS4 and Xbox One on August 2, Ubisoft have announced.

Following Black Ice and Dust Line, Skull Rain will add two new operators from Brazil's BOPE. The first of these is called Caveira, a defender with a 'Secret Step' skill that allows to sneak up and immobilise enemies before interrogating them to reveal teammate locations. Her loadout includes an M12 and a SPAS-15 with a PRB92 as a secondary, as well as Nitro Cell C4 and Barbed Wire.

The second is an attacker called Capitão who has an M249 LMG and a Para-308 as primaries, also having a PRB92 as a secondary. He also has frag, stun, and micro smoke grenades and a tactical crossbow that shoots "asphyxiating bolts."

The expansion will also give players a new map set in a Brazilian favela, free for all players of the game and said to be extremely destructible. It will also make tweaks to the game as well as adding an angle-grip attachment and a surrender system.

A new mode by the name of Tactical Realism will also be added:

"By popular request, the Tactical Realism mode prevents players from marking enemies, allowing only the timer, compass, gadget, and weapon panels to be visible in the HUD. Additionally, there are no kill confirmations, and more realistic magazine management will be put into play," Ubisoft elaborated. "The idea is to push players to rely even more on their teammates and communication for information on enemy locatios and kill counts".

Season Pass holders will get exclusive access to the two new operators for the first seven days before everyone else will be allowed to try them.

REVIEW. Written by Anders Mai

"It's in competitive multiplayer where the game shines. The matches are short, intense and always surprising."
