A leaked video shows off the new Rainbow Six Siege season four DLC map which is likely called Skyscraper, and gives a brief glimpse of one of the new operators.
It was almost a year ago that Ubisoft Japan jumped the gun and posted an image of one of the Rainbow Six Siege Japanese operators, but fans have been kept in the dark ever since about the mysterious season four content. Despite the studio’s best efforts, a new video clip detailing the new season four map and one of the Japanese operators has now come to light, allowing Rainbow Six Siege players to get their first real look at the upcoming content.
The leaked footage shows off plenty of the new map, which we believe is called Skyscraper. In the video, the player is explaining where the best spots where to make holes in the wall for ambushes, and players can get multiple views of the skyscraper-topping restaurant which seems to be the focus of the map.
Eagle-eyed gamers will also be able to catch a few glimpses of the new Japanese defender (pictured here), whose icon seems to resemble a drone. There have been many longstanding rumors about an operator utilizing a flyable drone as his special ability, so it stands to reason that this may be case here.

Unfortunately, no news has come forth about the Japanese attacker yet, which will be a female operator if the pattern of a male and female operator duo continues. A cryptic post from a week ago on the Rainbow Six Siege subreddit predicted what was revealed today, but also indicated that the Japanese female attacker would have imploding grenades which could blow holes through reinforced walls, offering the attacking squad a nice alternative to Thermite.
In any event, it’s exciting to get a look at the new content to join the existing DLC operators. Ubisoft will be doing all that it can to retain the influx of players who have come in since Operation Skull Rain, as the eSports pushing title now has more active players than it had during launch.
In the meantime, today’s console patch introduces plenty of new updates and bug fixes to the battlefield. One of the most notable fixes involve the Brazilian operator Caveira and her special interrogation ability. Prior to the patch, players could disconnect as Caveira started the interrogation process to prevent the move from revealing their squad’s location, but the patch now ensures that even if dishonest players disconnect, their squad will still be revealed.
Ubisoft is also including a network update in an effort to make its servers more reliable. Plus, the company has also included a new anti-bullying update to bring further punishment to repeat teamkillers.
Rainbow Six Siege is available now for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
