The New Skyscraper Map and Two New Japanese S.A.T. Operators
In Operation Red Crow, the Skyscraper map is perched high above the streets of Nagoya, Japan, where Operators have to neutralize an organized crime threat within a Yakuza-filled mansion. Two Japanese Special Assault Team (S.A.T.) Operators, Hibana and Echo, have been enlisted to suppress this menace:
Hibana is an expert at gaining entry in high risk areas thanks to her explosive leadership on the field. She is equipped with the SuperNova and Type-89 as primary weapons, allowing for rapid motions and providing precise room to room clearings.
Echo, a tactical and technology-driven Operator, is also equipped with the SuperNova along with the MP5SD4 as primary weapons, allowing him to proceed rapidly and precisely in Close Quarter Battle contexts.
Season Pass owners will benefit from seven days of exclusive access to these new Operators while all other players will be able to unlock them with their Renown or R6 Credits after the exclusive period.
Further details on the content of Operation Red Crow will be unveiled during the Rainbow Six Pro League Season 3 Finals livestream, which will include the first live demo of the new DLC.
