A new season of Rainbow Six Siege is here! Set sail for the Mediterranean islands with the signature Velvet Shell headgear for all Operators.
In Operation Velvet Shell, two G.E.O. Operators join Team Rainbow to regain control of the "Coastline". Following a year of post-launch content, this major update aims to improve player comfort with an upgraded navigation interface, customisation selections and lots more.
With Operation Velvet Shell, Team Rainbow recruits two of G.E.O.’s finest: Mira and Jackal.
The new Operators are immediately unlocked for Season Pass owners, with exclusive access granted for seven days. All players can then unlock the Operators with Renown or R6 Credits after the exclusive period ends.
Elena María Álvarez was born in Retiro, Madrid, where she learned to spot and fix mechanical defects on automobile engines. Demonstrating solid physical endurance and a stubborn need to prove her worth, Álvarez later joined the Grupo Especial de Operaciones (G.E.O.). Her wide-ranging knowledge of vehicles made her an expert in the ballistic field, which she uses to develop and test bulletproof materials.
Álvarez came up with the idea for Black Mirror during Operation Blue Orion, when she was forced to improvise a panic room at the Embassy of Spain in Tel Aviv. She used this experience to design a specialized laminated glass, which when deployed with oxyacetylene can carve out a one-way mirror on any wall. If the air pressure is disrupted, however, the glass is ejected and creates a daring opening for both defenders and attackers.
Born in Ceuta, Spain, Ryad Ramírez Al-Hassar’s broad resourcefulness on difficult terrains made him an expert tracker. His extensive training outside the Cuerpo Nacional de Policía include several survival courses, tactical desert navigation programs, and specialized combat diving practice. Ramírez is known to be the best asset of the G.E.O. to track down HVTs and intercept narcotics shipments. He is ruthless on the field and determined to unravel the events that led to the loss of his older brother, Faisal.
Inspired by the FBI’s Quick Capture Platform, the Eyenox Model III was created to offer a mobile tracking device able to both identify and trail a person’s footprints in real-time. This forensic tool was first used to track terrorist cells back to hidden cave complex in the mountains of Afghanistan. Equipped with advanced computer vision, the Eyenox detects invisible details relating to footfall and weight distribution so that you can identify and stalk your target.
Team Rainbow has been called to safeguard the seashore of Ibiza, Spain. Two of G.E.O.’s most resourceful Operators have been selected to provide their unique tactical expertise to the unit. Stationed on Ibiza’s rocky shore, course through Balearic ruins and navigate booming bars to neutralize the threat. Get ready for a surround flow of combat laced with chaotic rushes as you explore a paradise gone wrong.
The new Coastline map is available for free for all players.
Celebrate Year Two Season One of Rainbow Six Siege with four new Velvet Shell Signature weapon skins. Chupinazo, El Dorado, León Furioso and Crossfader are sleek, vibrant designs inspired by the colors of the Spanish shores.

Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege is the upcoming installment of the acclaimed first-person shooter franchise developed by the renowned Ubisoft Montreal studio.
Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege invites players to master the art of destruction. Intense close quarters confrontations, high lethality, tactics, team play, and explosive action are at the center of the experience. The gameplay sets a new bar for intense firefights and expert strategy in the rich legacy of past Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six games.
THE SIEGE GAMEPLAY
For the first time in Rainbow Six, players will engage in sieges, a brand-new style of assault. Enemies now have the means to transform their environments into strongholds: they can trap, fortify, and create defensive systems to prevent breach by Rainbow teams.
To face this challenge, players have a level of freedom unrivaled by any previous Rainbow Six game. Combining tactical maps, observation drones, and a new rappel system, Rainbow teams have more options than ever before to plan, attack, and diffuse these situations.
COUNTER TERRORIST UNITS
Counter terrorist operatives are trained to handle extreme situations, such as hostage rescue, with surgical precision. As “short range” specialists, their training is concentrated on indoor environments. Operating in tight formations, they are experts of close quarter combat, demolition, and coordinated assaults. Rainbow Six Siege will include operators coming from five of the most worldwide renowned CTU: the British SAS, the American SWAT, the French GIGN, the German GSG9 and the Russian SPETSNAZ.
These Operators are specialists with their own expertise within Siege operations. Each has their own unique personality & specialty. Some are focused on assault where as others are defense-oriented. They can be combined within the same team to create new team strategies.
Destruction is at the heart of the siege gameplay. Players now have the unprecedented ability to destroy environments. Walls can be shattered, opening new lines of fire, and ceiling and floors can be breached, creating new access points. Everything in the environment reacts realistically, dynamically, and uniquely based on the size and caliber of bullets you are using or the amount of explosives you have set. In Rainbow Six Siege, destruction is meaningful and mastering it is often the key to victory.
