It’s good news for Clancy fans who are getting a bit weary of The Division as Rainbow Six Siege announced Operation Velvet Shell, the first major content update for Year 2 will be available on February 7th for Xbox One, Sony PlayStation and PC. This Year 2 content will further grow the Rainbow Six Siege community experience with two new operators and “Coastline”: a lively, nightlife-based multiplayer map available in both PVP and PVE.

The Coastline map is set on the rocky shores of Ibiza in Spain, where two operators of the Spanish Grupo Especial de Operaciones (G.E.O.) have to safeguard the perimeter of a famous nightclub. Blood and cocktails will be spilled alike! New details on the content of Operation Velvet Shell will be unveiled during the Six Invitational, which will include the first live demo of the new Spanish CTU. To get a first look at Operation Velvet Shell, you can tune in to the livestream at 1:15pm EST on Sunday, February 5th here: https://www.twitch.tv/rainbow6

If that wasn’t enough, you can even try Rainbow Six Siege for free from February 2-5th. If you want to to find out more about Rainbow Six Siege’s free weekend, click here.

Jonathan is HeyPoorPlayer's token British person, so expect him to thoroughly exploit this by quoting Monty Python and saying things like "Pip, pip, toodly-whotsit!" for the delight of American readers. He likes artsy-fartsy games, RPGs and RPG-Hybrids (which means pretty much everything at this point). He used to write for Sumonix.com. He's also just realised how much fun it is to refer to himself in the third person like he's The Rock or something.
