Rainbow Six Siege’s Operation Demon Veil is here to usher in Year 7. There’s tons of new content to discover: Azami, the newest defender, the new Emerald Plains map, Team Deathmatch, attacker reselection, and more.
Have you been tracking the Demon Veil leaks? The operation is now here and while some of them have borne fruit, there is much more to look forward to in Rainbow Six Year 7 Season 1.
Azami is coming, yes, but there’s more to launch: siege gets its first new map in over three years, a new persistent game mode, and the launch of Attacker Re-Pick —finally.
Here’s everything you need to know for Operation Demon Veil.
Azami is revealed as the new Rainbow Six Siege defender
Ubisoft is sticking to the one-operator annual plan for Rainbow Six Siege Year 7 Azami stands alone as the only new addition to Demon Veil. A Japanese defender inspired by private security forces, Warden now has competition for who is best dressed in Siege.
Azami utilizes Kiba Barriers, which are deployed by throwing a modified Kunai Knife that expands into a concrete-like bulletproof barrier on hitting a surface. They can patch holes in walls, floors, and ceilings remotely, and give defenders their first gadget to prevent vertical play.
She carries the 9x19VSN SMG and ACS12 shotgun as her main weapons, with the D-50 as a sidearm.
The new Emerald Plains map is coming mid-season
After three long years, Rainbow Six Siege players will also be rewarded with a new map. There have been a dozen map reworks since Fortress’ last map release in December 2018 – but in Demon Veil we’re going to a new location on Ireland’s Emerald Plains.
Inspired by luxurious country clubs, the menu features opulent high ceilings and lots of quirky adornments (think Kafe, but more aristocratically). However, the new map will not be available at launch, but only in the middle of the season.
As a result, there will be no map rework in Operation Demon Veil.
Not only new operators and maps are coming, but also new game modes. Team Deathmatch (TDM) is finally launching in Siege. It will be a permanent playlist pitting two teams of five against each other in a race for 75 kills.
Gadgets are disabled, with both sides only having access to raw weapons (and the occasional impact grenade or stun grenade). There’s also no abandonment penalty, making it the ideal warm-up mode.
Attackers reselect returns after test year 6
Attacker Re-Pick has been teased repeatedly, however After testing in Operation High Caliber, Ubisoft is finally shipping the feature live in Year 7 of Rainbow Six Siege.
Attackers can change their operators up to three seconds into the prepare phase when they are banned. That way they can boom, decide if they need to change their lineup, and do so. Defenders aren’t afforded the same luxury – the move is actually an attempt to more closely balance attack and defense.
Attacker reselection will be available in all Rainbow Six Siege game modes: Quick Match, Unranked, and Ranked.
Goyo Rework is finally going live
Goyo’s rework was supposed to come in Year 6, but Ubisoft delayed it to get it just right. Now they released all the changes for the Mexican defender in Operation Demon Veil.
Gone are the Volcan shields, with the fuel jug existing as a standalone device instead. You can attach it to surfaces or other devices and explode as soon as you shoot, melee or blow it up with explosives. Fire now lasts longer and covers a larger area, allowing for more effective area denial.
Operation Demon Veil goes live in Rainbow Six Siege February 22, 2022 — first on the test server (TTS) and then on all platforms in early March. We will keep you informed about an exact release date.
