Proving that military operation name generators inevitably cough up titles which sound like elegant personal massagers sold in bourgeois boutiques, Ubisoft have announced Operation Velvet Shell for Rainbow Six Siege [official site]. The first content update of the wall-smashing shooter’s second season will, as ever, introduce a new map and two new characters, and Ubi now share a peek at that new map. Operation Eternity Rose’s map, Coastline, is — whoah! — going to Ibiza. Whoah! Back to the island. Whoah! It’s gonna have a party. Whoah! [That’s enough biting Alec’s act, thank you -ed.]Coastline really is going to the Spanish island of Ibiza, mind. It’s set in a swish mansion-o-hotel-a-bar on the shore, which does look like a place the Vengaboys would wanna have a party. Whoah!
“The vivid new multiplayer map ‘Coastline’ both available in PVP and PVE is designed to drive a surround flow of combat for a final rush at its core.
“Get ready for an effervescent night ambiance with neon lights of bars and open-air parties, which Ibiza is famous for. Daytime is a hazy afternoon on a hot summer day after a long night out.”
Some of those sentences make sense? Someone’s been pre-loading a little too hard.
Ubisoft haven’t yet revealed the new characters coming with Operation Pleasure Seed nor a release date. They will be showing more of it during the Rainbow Six Invitational tournament next weekend, so maybe expect the update to launch in a few weeks?
