Rainbow Six Siege has just entered its seventh year and the new season of the veil of the demon. Aside from a new map, a new operator, and the constant addition of a Team Deathmatch mode, Demon Veil will introduce a new layer of strategy that could have enormous implications for the rest of the game.
The main change in Demon Veil is the new Operator.
Azami is a two-healthy 2-speed defender from Japan. In addition to weapons – a D-50 pistol and a 9X19SVN submachine gun or an ACS12 shotgun – your choice, her gadget is the Kiba Barrier. By throwing one of five special kunai, she can create destructible barriers around the map, forcing attackers to take specific routes or blocking holes to defend against drones and grenades. Elsewhere, another Defender, Goyo, is getting a minor tweak, and he will now be able to place his gas canisters on walls and the floor.
Demon Veil also adds a new card, Emerald Plains. Emerald Plains is the first new Rainbow Six Siege map in three years, so that it will be an exciting new battleground. Based around a mansion on Ireland’s Emerald Isle, you’ll fight on multiple levels, from perfectly manicured gardens to rooftops.
Ubisoft is also introducing a new mode this season. Team Deathmatch will once again pit two squads of five players against each other, offering the freedom to choose any Operator regardless of the team or whether anyone else is playing for them. It’s perfect for those who want to practice gunfights, as it gets rid of the gadgets, drones, or shields that are critical to the competitive Siege mode.
However, even more, impressive is introducing the “Attacker Repick” system. As the name suggests, the new feature will allow the attacking team to select a new operator during the preparation phase based on the tactics and operator choice of the defenders, which could completely change the ranked and competitive scenes of Rainbow Six Siege.
Demon Veil is out now with the new Azami, unlocked with the New Season Battle Pass Premium Track or Renown or R6 Credits.
