The next big update for Rainbow Six Siege, called Operation Para Bellum, will take players to sunny Tuscany.
Starting in June, the update will add two new operators into the mix: Alibi and Maestro, members of the Italian Gruppo di Intervento Speciale (G.I.S.). The former uses a deployable hologram, the latter a bulletproof remote access turret.
On top of that, the new Tuscany map centres on a countryside villa.
The blurb reads:
“In Operation Para Bellum, two Italian G.I.S. Operators join Rainbow as the unit raids a luxurious Tuscan villa, Rainbow Six Siege’s 20th map. The land belongs to the Vinciguerra, a dangerous crime family known for their smuggling activities. The house is their retreat, where they lead a lavish lifestyle and collect rare art pieces. Players will arrive at Villa during a key moment: Vinciguerras are burning documents and transporting their holdings before the big raid. But they’ve got wind of Operation Para Bellum and fled, leaving everything in disarray with vital information ready for the taking.”
A new Pick & Ban system will make its way into the game, allowing players to counter their opponents’ picks during the banning phase.

We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
