Ubisoft has shared details about the upcoming Rainbow Siege Siege season, Operation Neon Dawn. The studio announced that Year 5, Season 4 goes live on the PC Test Server on Monday, November 9. With the new season, players get access to another operator, a reworked Skyscraper map, new accessibility options, and the Sixth Guardian Program.
The headlining feature of Operation Neon Dawn is the addition of Aruni, Siege’s first Thai operator. Aruni comes equipped with the Surya Gate, a deployable laser gate that deals damage to Attackers and turns off for Defenders to pass. The Surya Gate can be attached to walls, hatches, doors, and windows. Aruni is also strapped with the MK 14 EBR and P10 RONI as primary weapons and a PRB 92 as a secondary weapon. This corroborates a recent tease.
Further, the Skyscraper map has been “reimagined” and “reworked” to include three major objectives. One such goal is funnel Attackers into the building by reducing the number of available balconies and relocating them. Two other features have been tweaked on Skyscraper: a new rotation between the sides of the building on the second floor has been added and bomb sites have been balanced to make for more competitive matches.
Elsewhere, Operation Neon Dawn features new accessibility options, such as Voice to Text and Text to Voice for in-game chat. Other settings include chat assistance for Narration and Hunts and customization options for audio/visual cues and font scaling.
Then there’s the Six Guardian Program, which contains a limited-time bundle dedicated to a certain charity. Ubisoft said more about this partnership will be revealed soon.
Operation Neon Dawn launches first on the PC Test Server and will release in full on PC and consoles at a later date. This update comes just before the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series S / Series X launch. Rainbow Six Siege will be available as a free next-gen upgrade for all owners.
