Rainbow Six Siege is introducing a human wrecking-ball and a lunar ghost

Smash the stars

It's a romantic tale as old as time. He's on the run, smashing through walls with his beefcake physique. She's in space and might be a ghost. Can I make it any more obvious? Rainbow Six Siege is preparing to take off with its first Season of the new year. Making its teaser debut today, Operation Void's Edge is taking Ubisoft's shooter high into orbit, before smashing it into tiny stone pieces.

Everyone's running from something, you say? Well, I'd hate to be running from this lad.

While our short clip there doesn't name names, a post on the Rainbow Six subreddit leaking the pair named then as Yana and Oryx - the moon-walker and wall-smasher, respectively. For clarity's sake, let's keep calling them by those monikers.

Siege has grown an impressive lineup of wall-smashing gadgets across the years. But Oryx, it seems, doesn't need any fancy-schmancy tools. Leaked data (via Dextero) suggest he'll Kool-Aid his way through soft walls. Yana, meanwhile, isn't supernatural - even if her ghostly white hair teases otherwise. No, instead she appears to be able to send out lifelife holograms to confuse foes, else go strolling on the moon without a sweater. It's cold out, don'tcha know?

Ubisoft briefly teased the name of this year's first operation on Monday with the phrase "look into your darkness". Hold on - you've got darkness, and a lad named Oryx? You've not gone and done a Destiny 2 crossover, have you?

For now, that's all the info we've got to go on. We'll have more to share once Ubi give us the full lowdown during the Rainbow Six Invitational this Saturday.
