Ubisoft has revealed its plans for the third year of DLC for Rainbow Six Siege.

Throughout 2018, Rainbow Six Siege is going to receive a clutch of new content: two new maps (and an update of an old map) and eight new operators to play with.

As before, the DLC is going to be split into four seasons; the first season, called Operation Chimera, will include the game’s “first ever co-op event.”

In a press release, Ubisoft went into more detail:

“This season’s two operators are specialists in biohazard situations and, on top of being playable in adversarial multiplayer, will have to face a major threat in what will be the game’s first co-op event ever, named Outbreak. This event will be playable during 4 weeks for free for Rainbow Six Siege owners. It will also feature an exclusive collection of cosmetics, available only during the time of the event.”

On top of that, two new operators from the Italian GIS, and a new map set in Italy, will be introduced in season 2.

Not much else is known at this point, with Ubisoft stating that, “The full reveal of Operation Chimera and Outbreak will take place in Montreal at the Six Invitational 2018.”

The season pass will be available to buy from December 12th.
