What you need to know
- Warden is the new U.S. Secret Service agent headed to Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege (opens in new tab).
- Ubisoft has posted a brief reveal trailer, highlighting the Operator's secret agent theme.
Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege is rapidly on track to receive Operation Phantom Sight, an all-new haunting update headed to Ubisoft's hit tactical shooter. Following the cryptic glance of forthcoming Danish attacker dubbed Nøkk, an initial teaser has dropped for her sleek, covert U.S. Secret Service partner, Warden.
The latest trailer highlights the new U.S. Secret Service defender in action, evoking the Operator's inner James Bond via corny secret agent theme. We also see an MPX submachine gun in-hand, while armored up in a heavy kevlar vest.
While Ubisoft is slated to host a formal unveiling of Operation Phantom Sight this weekend, current teasers align with reputable leaks from early 2019. Alongside affirmation of both Operator names, leaks suggest Warden will feature a "special eyesight" negating flash and smoke grenades. Meanwhile, Nøkk may carve a new stealth role, with invisibility to cameras fusing Vigil and Caveira.
Scheduled for May 19, 2019, Rainbow Six Siege Operation Phantom Sight will see its full unveiling at the Rainbow Six Pro League Finals in Milan. Hosted via the Rainbow Six Twitch channel, a full live stream is set for 11:25 AM ET (5:25 PM local time).
