The next Rainbow Six update called Operation Para Bellum which introduces two new operators, map and major upgrades to the gameplay is set to launch next month and has been called ‘one of the largest content updates yet’ for the title.

Operation Para Bellum will introduce two operations: Alibi and Maestro who are both defence operators. Ubisoft has released a new trailer featuring the abilities and weaponry the two Italian CTU have at their disposal.

Revealed before Operation Para Bellum, Rainbow Six will feature a Pick & Ban system where each side will try and counter their opponents picks during the banning phase.

Additionally game updates include:

  • Deloyable Bullet Proof Cameras
  • New Counter Defuser Animation
  • Dropshotting  Adjustments
  • Weapon Sight Misalignment Adjustments
  • New Observation Tool Management
  • Operator Speed Adjustments
  • Echo Buff
  • Clubhouse Map Buff

Test servers for Operation Para Bellum will go live on May 23rd. As per usual, season pass owners will get access to the latest operators before standard users – no exact date of when the new operation drops but it’s sometime in June.
