Rainbow Six Siege Teases Its Moroccan-Set Next Season, Operation Wind Bastion
Ubisoft has shared first details about Rainbow Six Siege’s fourth “season” of Year 3, entitled Operation Wind Bastion. This new season takes place in the Morocco, and will include the usual two Operators, and an all-new map. So far, Ubisoft is being a bit cagey about the details, but they have released a few hints about what to expect from the update. Here’s how they describe the two new operators, who represent Morocco’s Groupe d'Intervention de La Gendarmerie Royale (GIGR):

The first Operator is a Defender and Commander who is as stoic as the mountains are immovable. He is stationed at Morocco’s legendary kasbah, a training ground that has shocked and awed thousands of incoming soldiers. Strict and imposing, he inspires respect and has taken it upon himself to guide the future of Moroccan Special Forces.
The second Operator is an Attacker who travels wherever the wind takes her. She’s among the few explorers who can cross the Sahara, climb up the Alps, trek through Asia’s rainforests, march along the Arctic Circle…and still return to her unit in operational shape. Perceptive and resourceful, she’s an expert on environmental operations with a knack for pushing the enemy back.
Hmmm, sounds like an interesting duo – I wonder what kind of abilities they’ll have? Ubisoft also provided this description of the game’s new map…
For Operation Wind Bastion and following a written agreement with the resident Commander, Rainbow Six has secured permission to use the renowned fortress located in the Atlas Mountains. You’ll have the rare opportunity to test your skills inside a stunning mudbrick kasbah. Enjoy unprecedented roof access, but do try to stay focused despite the breathtaking oasis just next door.
Again, it’s all a bit vague at this point, but Ubisoft is promising to deliver more information during the Rainbow Six Siege Pro League Finals, which kick off on November 17.
Rainbow Six Siege is currently available on PC, Xbox One, and PS4.
