With Rainbow Six Siege’s latest year of content updates looming on Xbox One, PS4, and PC, Ubisoft has offered a first look at Outback, the new Australia-themed map to be added as part of Year 4, Season 1.
Season 1, known as Operation Burnt Horizon, is poised to take Rainbow Six Siege to the intimidating expanse of Australia’s Outback, and introduces the aforementioned new map, new Operators, and more. The map, according to Ubisoft’s reveal post, is “an homage to all the dusty service stations and motels that populate the forgotten highways of the continent, places filled with hardworking locals and specialty menu items you’ll find nowhere else.”
The pitstop featured in the Outback map, which consists of a garage, motel, and restaurant, gets its own Rainbow Six Siege twist, thanks to the nuclear convoy that’s had a sort of crashy mishap in the immediate vicinity. Each section of the map is distinct, and players can find “rooms packed with souvenirs and cultural artifacts from many a roadside petrol station across the Great Southern Land.” Ubisoft also notes that players might spot “our friendly resident mascot, Norman, in the restaurant, though we do ask that you try not to stare.”
