Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege Operators will be joining the cast of Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands with the Operation Archangel starting tomorrow. Here’s what you need to know before the event begins.
Starting on July 24, 2018, Ubisoft has revealed that Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege and Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands will begin and fans of both titles will be able to team up with operators Valkyrie, Twitch, and Caveira in the two-part cross-over which begins tomorrow for all platforms.
This update will be the first of two that come across in Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege. As an additional feature of the cross-over event, Ubisoft has also revealed that along with the main campaign content, players can also expect to unlock new Ghost War PvP classes and a two-part PvE mission. In the mission, players will take to looking for Rainbow Six Siege Operator Caveira who has gone missing, and longtime friend, Valkyrie, aka Karen Bowman, has tracked down her missing friend to Bolivia, where her, Twitch, and the Ghosts will follow a trail of clues in order to find out why Caveira was in Bolivia.
Players will also learn more about Caveira, her troubled past, and just what has happened in this special challenge mission where players can play solo or with up to four other players as you move across the province of the Caimanes. Upon completing Operation Archangel before August 14, 2018, players will be rewarded with Caveira’s gloves. When equipped, players will be able to perform her iconic CQCC move and unlock the position of all nearby enemies.
In addition to completing the mission, players can also further customize their ghosts with the Rainbow Six Gear Pack, which includes new customization items such as Caveira’s iconic Luison handgun, a fully customizable HK 416 assault rifle, a head-wrapped shemagh inspired by Valkyrie and a skull balaclava inspired by Twitch. Special Operation 2 will also bring in two new Ghost War PvP classes, Toxic and Surgeon, both of which are inspired by Rainbow Six Siege characters Doc and Smoke. Toxic uses his drone to deploy a large cloud of toxic smoke, which allows players to trap the enemy team into specified locations while also creating objective denials for his team.
Additionally, Surgeon can use his stim pistol to revive fallen players from a distance and even create new opportunities to deploy strategic advantages over the opposing team. The upcoming update will also feature two new PvP maps including Factory and Checkpoint as well as a new spectate feature called the Observer mode and a new PvE game mode, which features permadeath, called Ghost mode.
Ghost War players will be able to get a head start with a seven-day early access to the new classes, maps, and Ghost Mode with the Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands Year 2 Pass. Along with all the new content, Ubisoft has confirmed that Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands will be up to 67% off from July 24, 2018, through July 31, 2018.
