What's Coming In The New Update?

This is the exciting part... Operation North Star is going to be another huge seasonal update for Rainbow Six Siege and it's safe to say that Siege players are being treated.

Thunderbird is the newest Defender Operator joining the Siege Roster and will act as this season's "new face". Favela is the next map to undergo some changes, which should see rotation improve and make it more playable.


The Meth Lab is gone, there have been changes to the destructibility of the locale and the Attackers' choke points have been adjusted. It promises to be a solid set of changes to the map which many players will welcome.

There's also a slew of Operator balancing changes, a new Health System to replace the Armour System in play at the moment, and a whole lot more.
