Ubisoft is finally gearing up for the long-awaited next season for its hit tactical shooter, Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege. Following the release of June's Operation Para Bellum, a new wave of multiplayer content is on the way with some exciting new additions.
A newly-posted teaser has surfaced on the official Rainbow Six Siege Twitter, featuring an emblem for "Hereford Royal Air Force." Although details on Year 3, Season 3 are scarce, this is an expected reference to the previously announced "Hereford Base" rework set for the major update.

As revealed at the February's Six Invitational, the upcoming revision is set 30 years prior to the existing SAS design alongside some significant changes. Hereford Base was designed as an archetypal map during early development, though as mechanics evolved, it was less-suited for heavy destruction.
As noted in our Year 3, Season 3 roundup, one of the biggest additions is a vibrant red brick design, which aims to make destructible surfaces easily identifiable. Other notable changes include reduced entry points, a revamped exterior stairwell, and a revised courtyard. The roof has also undergone a complete overhaul, removing the original balcony. While we've yet to see the interior, expect some significant changes to room layout.
More details on the upcoming Rainbow Six Siege season are expected in the coming days, ahead of a reveal later this month. Other confirmed additions include two new playable Operators, with leaks already providing an insight into their potential gadgets.
