What you need to know

  • Ubisoft has debuted its first teaser trailer for its next Rainbow Six Siege update, Operation Void Edge.
  • The trailer showcases both upcoming Operators, named Oryx and Iana.

Ubisoft has dropped its first video teaser for Operation Void Edge, its upcoming seasonal expansion headed to Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege. Leading its Year 5 content plans, Void Edge promises the latest shakeup for its tactical gameplay, defined by two new playable Operators, Oryx and Iana. And with its Six Invitational unveiling on track for February 15, we've received our first teaser trailer for the duo.

The trailer showcases two contrasting personas under Void Edge; its new burly juggernaut and a composed interstellar agent. While Ubisoft remains tight on precise details surrounding planned abilities, reputable leaks suggest a new wall-smashing defender and an attacker equipped with a controllable hologram. Current teasers seemingly align with those reports, showing the first potential glimpse of both skills in action.

Rainbow Six Siege Operation Void Edge is expected to continue Ubisoft's familiar seasonal template, featuring two recruits accompanied by a new multiplayer map. Various rumors also suggest sizeable Year 5 refinements in the pipeline, including the long-awaited Tachanka rework, and a full-fledged theater mode.

Void Edge is scheduled for a February 15 reveal at the Six Invitational 2020, commencing at 3:30 PM ET / 12:30 PM PT / 8:30 PM UK time. While Ubisoft often remains coy on a firm release window, early March public availability appears likely.
