Ubisoft Montreal have unveiled Rainbow Six Siege‘s subsequent multiplayer map, first teased earlier this week. Out within the southern Moroccan hills lies a surprisingly scenic previous fortress, used as a army coaching website, however I’m going to really feel unhealthy for rampaging by way of it weapons blazing. There are excessive towers, sheer partitions, plenty of stable wanting cowl and much an excessive amount of stained glass. It’s a formidable piece of structure simply to have a look at, and will make for an attention-grabbing house to sneak round. Check it out within the little tour video beneath.
Ubisoft say this atmosphere is predicated on actual, current buildings – I’m curious at which of them particularly. The kasbah map ought to enable for each shut and longer vary gunfights, with some good open courtyards, excessive partitions and vantage factors. Inside, it’s a warren of rooms of various dimension, linked by way of spiralling staircases and ladders. Lots of vertical motion and potential to interrupt out rappelling gear. Visually, the map is break up into two halves – a fancier, renovated facet utilized by the command workers and a considerably scruffier facet utilized by the rank-and-file troopers of the fortress.
What I’m most interested in is whether or not the supplies used on this new map can have any impact on the way it performs. Most of Siege’s environments are manufactured from skinny wooden and thinly insulated drywall. The kasbah seems considerably sturdier than that, with stable brick partitions, marble pillars and a few tough-looking previous fortifications. Ubisoft haven’t launched any particulars on the 2 coming operators both, though one is meant to be the commander of the fort itself, and the opposite is a globe-trotting adventurer. More Uncharted than Rainbow Six, maybe, however thematically attention-grabbing.
Ubisoft shall be doing their full reveal of Operation Wind Bastion (almost certainly showcasing the brand new operators) subsequent weekend, November 17th and 18th, in the course of the Pro League Finals on Twitch here.
