At the start of your Siege career? Here are the best Rainbow Six Siege operators.
Operation Para Bellum adds Siege’s 39th and 40th operators, signalling that the pool of Rainbow Six characters has now doubled in size since the game’s launch in 2015. Both Italian operators are defenders, mirroring last season’s duo of attackers, meaning that the sides are finally balanced out. There are now 20 attack operators and 20 on defence.
Rainbow Six Siege Para Bellum release date
Rainbow Six Siege Para Bellum will launch on June 7, Ubisoft has confirmed. As usual, season pass holders will have access to the new operators on day one, with non pass holders having to wait until June 14 to unlock them. Para Bellum was released onto the Technical Test Server (TTS) on May 22, so if you can't wait the last few days to play with the operation's new features, you can hop over there for a preview.
