Rainbow Six Siege Shows Red Crow’s Japanese New Map

The next free Rainbow Six Siege [official site] level will be visiting Japan, Ubisoft have confirmed, for the copmen to smash through a castle. Which is in the middle of the city of Nagoya. Atop a skyscraper. It’s a castle on a skyscraper. That sounds expensive. That sounds fun to smash! Word (and moving pictures) of this level leaked a while back but hey, now it’s official.

Here, check out the new map coming in Operation Red Crow:

That’s a good-looking map, that. Bonus points go to everyone who fakes opponents out by pretending to be mannequins.

A few weeks ago, footage leaked of two players larking about in an unfinished version of the map with one of the new operators. It’s not exciting and clearly not finished but hey, for posterity:

Cheeky folks have also leaked notgreat pictures of the new operators, Echo and Hibana.

Ubisoft plan to gab about Red Crow and show it off during a Twitch livestreams next weekend, November 12th and 13th. Presumably they’ll also announce when the update will actually launch. The usual Siege update approach is to launch the map for everyone while restricting the new characters to people with a Season Pass for a week before letting everyone else get at them.

    “The uploader has not made this video available in your country.”

    Why do games marketing departments go out of their way to limit who can see their advertisements? Is Ubisoft UK in a grudge match with Ubisoft North America over who can sell more copies, and neither side wants any of their promotional juice to spill over to the other team?

    New operators look like yugioh villains. Shamefurl dispray!

    You know, if I had to guess where in the world a Japanese castle on top of a skyscraper was placed, my guesses would go: San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York, Shanghai, Dubai, Moscow. I don’t think I’d guess it to be in actual Japan before the fiftieth guess.

    Sooooooo, hit your back button and then ctrl plus your screen so that the pagoda fills most of it, then mouse wheel up and down over and over watching the pagoda.
