The first season of Year 5 Rainbow Six Siege content is here with the arrival of Operation Void Edge - which sees the arrival of two new Operators, Iana and Oryx. Plus, a complete rework of the Oregon map that updates it look and layout to be more open and accessible.
But first, the new duo of Iana and Oryx.
Iana uses the Gemini Replicator, a remotely-controlled holographic copy of herself. When she deploys it, she can scout ahead with little to no consequences. It can move and produce sound like she would, but it cannot shoot, melee or use secondary gadgets. The Replicator has a time limit or can be exited at any time. The Replicator is all about fooling Iana’s opponents as well as collecting information. If the Gemini is spotted and destroyed by a Defender, it can help Iana deduce the threat’s location, but it will buy her opponents a few precious seconds to reposition.
Oryx’s signature move is the Remah Dash. Its speed allows him to roam efficiently and cover short distances with unprecedented swiftness and can also be used to knock down opponents. Oryx can also dash through breakable walls, creating a wide opening, though he loses health every time the Remah Dash is used for breaching. Additionally, Oryx has the unique ability to interact with broken hatches. He can climb straight through for a quick rotation, or he can hang on the edge to peek or wait for the perfect moment to go up. As long as he’s hanging, Oryx can also opt to drop down if the climb seems too dangerous.
Owners of the Year 5 Pass have access to both of the new arrivals right now, with everyone else having to wait until March 17 to unlock them using Renown or R6 Credits. For more info on the Operation Void Edge update - head here.
