Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege has received Operation Steel Wave, the latest seasonal refresh expanding Ubisoft’s hit tactical shooter. The update marks the arrival of new Operators Ace and Melusi, coupled with a fresh coat of paint for the fan-favorite House map. Ubisoft has also launched the patch with a new one-minute Steel Wave trailer, shedding light on the future Battle Pass.
Rainbow Six Siege’s third main Battle Pass adopts the title “Tour De Force,” once again serving an extensive lineup of cosmetic rewards tied to a multi-stage progression system. Ubisoft has expanded its next iteration to 45 tiers, resulting in 10 additional levels over past Battle Pass tracks. Tour De Force is scheduled to release on June 29, tailing Steel Wave deployment by two weeks.
We’re yet to receive the full list of Battle Pass rewards with Tour De Force, but its brief video presence suggests new skins for Twitch, Rook, Fuze, Maverick, and Nokk will be included. Twitch and Rook undergo motorcycle-themed revisions, while some Operators receive new orange-tinted Operation Blacksmith uniforms.
In the meantime, Rainbow Six Siege Operation Steel Wave is now available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. However, for access to new Operators Ace and Melusi today, you’ll need the new Year 5 Pass.
