Rainbow Six Siege Teaser Reveals Operator Jackal for Velvet Shell

By   /   Jan 30, 2017

Over the weekend, Ubisoft dropped a teaser to give us our first look at the upcoming new operator Jackal in Rainbow Six Siege.

Hailing from Spain’s special forces group, Grupo Especial de Operaciones (G.E.O), Jackal is “a specialist of difficult terrains”. He’s teased as a tracker, wielding a unique gadget that allows him to see footprints left behind by enemy operators.

According to the game’s scriptwriter Farah Brixi, Jackal is designed as a warning for the enemy side that they all have a target painted on their backs. His primary weapons are the C7E and PDW9, with ITA 12S and USP 40 as secondary weapons.

Operation Velvet Shell is the first major expansion pack for Rainbow Six Siege in its Year Two road-map. It will introduce two brand new operators in Rainbow Six Siege, in addition to a new map and accompanying cosmetic options.

Operation Velvet Shell is scheduled for an unveiling during the Six Invitational this week. The game’s competitive circuit will run between February 3-5, bringing together the best that Rainbow Six Siege has to offer.

With Jackal in the wild, we’re left with the other remaining Spanish operator. There’s no telling if Ubisoft plans on releasing another teaser in the next couple of days or save the second new operator for a reveal afterwards.

We’ve already seen a glimpse of Coastline, the new map heading for the game, set in a resort on the shores of Ibiza, Spain. It’s designed to “to drive a surround flow of combat for a final rush at its core” and will be available for both PvE and PvP.

Operation Velvet Shell is slated for a release in March. The operators and map will be free to all, with the former available for purchase through in-game currency. However, owning a $30 Year Two Season Pass will get you access sooner, along with other perks.
