Rainbow Six: Siege introduces a friendly new face.

Watch on YouTube

Rainbow Six: Siege fans should tune into the Six Invitational in early February for all the skinny on Operation Velvet Shell, the next big content update. Ubisoft is certainly doing all it can to get us to watch, with a series of teasing hints at what’s to come.

We’ve already had a peek at Coastline, the new Rainbow Six Siege map coming with Velvet Shell, but now here’s a new video snippet introducing Jackal.

This new operator is a local lad hailing from Spain’s special forces. Seemingly a tracker of some sort, something that’s not really present in the current Rainbow Six Siege lineup, he’s described as “a specialist of difficult terrains”. Watch for him on February 5, the third and final day of the Six Invitational.

Jackal will be joined by one other new Spanish operator when Operation Velvet Shell goes live in Rainbow Six: Siege. When will that be? No clue. It’s the first of four drops in the shooter’s second season of content.
