Rainbow Six Siege's Operation Dust Line Due May 11th

Two new operators

Most of the time I'm complaining that game trailers are too long and convey little information, but these 18 seconds of Rainbow Six Siege cram a lot in about the next bit of free DLC. Operation Dust Line will introduce a new map and two new Navy SEAL operators to the destructive asymmetric first-person shooter.

Here's the trailer, in case you had 18 seconds spare to watch it or 36 seconds spare to watch it twice:

The two new Operators (those are classes, Siege-nubs) are a Defender called Valkyrie, who has a SPAS-12 shotgun and throwable sticky cameras, and an Attacker, Blackbeard, who has a shield with a mounted handgun and a Desert Eagle. The new map, meanwhile, seems to be set in the Middle East somewhere. Somewhere near de_dust, maybe, I don't know.

The end of the trailer notes there'll be an official livestream showing more of the update on May 7th, just ahead of the game's PC Pro League Grand Final. I've no idea what the state of Siege is when it comes to an esport, but the inherent imbalance of it, where one team defends while the other attacks, makes it great for spectating.

The update itself is due to be released on May 11th for season pass holders, with everyone else being unable to unlock the new operators seven days afterwards.
