Today, we have a first look at the two new operators, named Yana and Oryx, that will be joining Ubisoft's tactical shooter Rainbow Six Siege in Year 5's Season 1.
As we get closer to Rainbow Six Siege's Year 5 Season 1 release date, fresh details about the new operators and other content have started to surface online. Yesterday, Ubisoft officially confirmed that Year 5 Season 1 is named Operation Void Edge and today, a new leak has revealed the look and names of the two new operators which will join the roster in Year 5 Season 1.
The leak comes from Rainbow Six Siege subreddit , where an artwork, featuring two new operators has been shared. As expected, we are getting one male and one female operator named Oryx and Yana, respectively.
Both operators look pretty cool, especially Yana, who reminds us of the replicant Pris from the original Blade Runner film, which we wholeheartedly recommend if you are yet to see it.
Anyway, thanks to some earlier leaks and the new artwork, we know a little bit about the new operators. As you can see in the image above Oryx seems to be crushing a wall with his elbow, which confirms the earlier rumours, claiming that one of the new operators will feature skills reminiscent of the Kool-Aid man, who can charge through soft surfaces.
The female operator seems much more high tech and futuristic so expect some pretty neat toy like a drone or other cool gadget.
Ubisoft are yet to reveal the full details about the new season but since the release date is inching closer, it is only a matter of time before the publisher confirms the new operators and other fresh content.
Rainbow Six Siege Year 5 Season 1 should start sometime in March 2020.
