Operation Phantom Sight is heading Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Siege‘s way, and will be incorporated into the popular tactical shooter tomorrow. When it does, it will add two new operators, which will be playable for Year 4 Pass owners starting tomorrow, and unlockable for others starting June 18th.
The two new operators are:
Nøkk is the new Attacker that can activate the HEL Presence Reduction gadget. Drones, Bulletproof Cameras, Evil Eyes and other observation tools will thus be unable to register Nøkk’s presence as she roams through the map, unseen. Her footsteps will be silenced as she stalks opposing Operators, unheard.
Warden, the new Defender, uses the Glance Smart Glasses gadget that can prevent him from being blinded by flash effects, cleanse an existing flash blindness and gain visibility through smoke. As long as he remains stationary, he can quickly turn a disadvantageous situation to his favor by activating his glasses, catching the approaching Attackers off guard.
Here’s more about Operation Phantom Sight, which we’ve borrowed from its press release:
Additionally, this new Operation includes a complete rework of Kafe lead to the gameplay experience being completely revamped. For instance, most of the first floor has been redesigned, with the most drastic change around the North entrance, and a new bombsite has been added on the second floor. Kafe Dostoyevsky has also received an aesthetic revamp that gives the map an even more sleek and chic atmosphere.
Operation Phantom Sight also brings many improvements and updates. Reverse Friendly Fire has been upgraded and now takes into consideration the actions of an entire squad. It is now possible to activate the Reverse Friendly Fire feature for an entire squad if they are consistently hurting their teammates. Additional new changes include a complete redesign of the shop front for a smoother and more enjoyable experience and improvements to Ranked Mode to make it more competitive and closer to the Pro League format: Pick & Ban, 3-round rotations and the Bomb game mode will now be the standard for all Ranked matches.
Finally, new skins have also been added: The Lesion prototype Elite skin is perfect to dish out some real venomous attacks with its cutting-edge technology alongside the abyssal Destroyer, dutiful Secret Star and vicious Strike Force weapon skins.
