Ubisoft have posted a brief teaser of Rainbow Six Siege: Operation Neon Dawn, unveiling the new Defender Aruni and announcing the full reveal for tomorrow.

The studio's earlier heads-up for Rainbow Six Siege's new operator only hinted at the country of origin, which is Thailand, but now we get to have a proper look at Aruni and her gadget. As you can see, Aruni's speciality is the laser gate that practically seals the gate and keeps the enemy at bay. 

Recent data-mining efforts by the Rainbow Six Siege community suggest the gadget is called Surya gate, which is a Sanskrit word for the Sun. Since we don't see any sun tanning equipment nearby, it's safe to assume that Surya will leave you with a permanent burning sensation and a one-way ticket into the proverbial light. Which would also explain all the fire metaphors she throws out.

"Aruni, a new Defender, is coming to Rainbow Six Siege and she's bringing the heat. Tune in during the EU Major to watch the full Operation Neon Dawn reveal live at", the studio wrote. 

There seems to be a mechanism whereby Rainbow Six Siege's new Defender and her team can pass through Surya without having to test the accuracy of her metaphorical quips. 

Aruni certainly looks the part of a certified badass, and the scar further accents the smoldering intensity of Rainbow Six Siege's new roster member. 

Ubisoft scheduled the reveal of Rainbow Six Siege: Operation Neon Dawn for Sunday, November 8, 2020, at 11:00am EST, when we expect to see her in action. There's no mention of the launch date, but we should find out soon enough.
