Ubisoft show off the outback in Operation Burnt Horizon trailer


G’day! Ubisoft have unveiled the new Rainbow Six Siege map they were teasing last week, and it’s Australia alright: kangaroos, didgeridoo music, and yet more kangaroos. Oh, and a massive shark, suspended from the ceiling, as you do. No koalas, though, which is a disappointment. Still, you can see it all for yourself in the trailer below.

“This map is an homage to all the dusty service stations and motels that populate the forgotten highways of the continent, places filled with hardworking locals and specialty menu items you’ll find nowhere else,” say Ubisoft, which is rather lovely. I would very much like to sit and have a coffee at – oh, what’s that?

“Unfortunately for this particular pit stop, a passing nuclear convoy came crashing to a halt while under attack, forcing locals and patrons to flee.” Well, dang.

“Your team headed in to clean up the mess,” they say, which is an odd euphemism for shooting a lot and breaking everything to bits. And you might even have to do more breaking than usual, because, quote, “there’s a limited number of doors.” Through the wall it is, then.

The full reveal for Operation Burnt Horizon will be taking place at the Six Invitational, which you can watch on Twitch. The Invitational runs from Friday, February 15th, until Sunday, February 17th, but the reveal itself is scheduled to take place on Sunday at about 6pm GMT. Presumably that’s when they’re planning to unveil the koalas.

In the meantime, you can get the low-down on everything else there is to know about the upcoming Year Four with the handy help of our Rainbow Six Siege guides.
