Kaid is Rainbow Six Siege's new electrifying defender

Ubisoft is gearing up for Operation Wind Bastion, the latest free expansion headed to Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege. Building on its tactical shooter gameplay, the update promises new Moroccan-themed content, including the "Fortress" multiplayer map and two new playable Operators.

Earlier this week, information on Operation Wind Bastion's Operators leaked, detailing "Kaid" and "Nomad" alongside their respective abilities. The first of the duo has now received a formal trailer, showcasing his high-voltage "Electroclaw" in action. This spider-inspired tool can be used to protect reinforced walls and hatches, alongside other player-deployed gadgets.

Expect further details on Operation Wind Bastion in the coming days, including a full breakdown of the latest attacker, Nomad. A full breakdown of content and availability is expected on November 18, via the Pro League Finals in Brazil.
