The biggest additions in Operation Grim Sky are the two new operators: Maverick and Clash. On the defensive side of things is Morrowa "Clash" Evans, who comes from Scotland Yard in the UK and wields a "CCE Shield" gadget as her primary weapon, enabling her to deploy a bulletproof defense while on the go. Meanwhile, Erik "Maverick" Thorn, from the U.S. Delta Force, takes on an attack role with breaching and stealth capabilities.
Instead of a whole new map, Operation Grim Sky will include reworkings of existing maps, Consulate and Hereford Base. New cosmetic items, including the "Huntress" Elite skin for Frost and weapon skins, are also in line for the update.
Lastly, Operation Grim Sky is set to debut dynamic render scaling on Xbox One X and PlayStation 4 Pro, along with more tools to combat toxic players.
