Just before Operation White Noise drops, a slew of Rainbow Six Siege Year 3 content has been announced.

Four seasonal updates are planned, beginning in January 2018. Each update will feature two new operators, while the entire year will see two new maps introduced.

Season 1 has already been named as Operation Chimera and is focused around bioterrorism. With two operators hailing from France and Russia respectively, Operation Chimera will also launch with a timed co-op event called Outbreak. This limited event will be free-to-play and available for four weeks during season 1.

While details are thin on the ground, with Rainbow Six Siege’s love of barricading and destroying said barricades, we assume it’ll be some sort of horde mode. Ubisoft has confirmed that unique event rewards will be available, offering up a collection of customisation options such as gun skins and different character models.

Following that, Season 2 will whisk players to Italy, with a new map and two Italian operators.

Season 3 will introduce a new character from the UK and another addition to the US with a Delta Force operator. Interestingly, Season 3 will also see a current map being pulled from rotation, completely reimagined and then re-introduced. Ubisoft wants to keep the ‘essence of the map the same’ but introduce new gameplay and tactics.

Season 4 will round out the year by landing in Africa. Morocco to be precise. With two new Moroccan operators and a brand new map, Rainbow Six Siege will finally have visited every continent.

Overall, it seems like after Operation Health and Year 2, Rainbow Six Siege Year 3 is looking too refine the competitive slant the game has. It already has huge momentum having just passed 25 million players and we’re sure the player base will be happy that Ubisoft aren’t slowing down any time soon.

According to Ubisoft, the Year 3 Season Pass will be available to purchase on December 12, with more details regarding the updates being revealed at the Rainbow Six Siege esports tournament Six Invitational in February.

Metallica takes center stage on the battle arena of the Fortnite Festival, showcasing their musical prowess in an epic PVP showdown

Metallica will be headlining the Battle Stage at the Fortnite Festival, and fans can look forward to an epic performance later today, on the 13th of June. The entire lineup of the legendary heavy metal band has been transformed into digital avatars for the ever-growing gaming platform. Fans can now enjoy their greatest hits and even engage in a thrilling musical player-versus-player game mode.

The collaboration between Metallica and Fortnite marks the start of Fortnite Festival Season 4, featuring an exciting lineup of six Metallica songs, such as “Enter Sandman,”  “Fuel,”  and “Ride the Lightning.”. Additional songs will be introduced as the season progresses. By choosing Epic’s premium Festival Pass, you’ll have the opportunity to unlock all four Metallica band members as playable skins. How about a showdown between Lars Ulrich and Goku?

The aspect that captures our attention is the 16-player musical battle royale. The Battle Stage offers a challenging experience that pushes players to their limits, requiring both physical stamina and a captivating stage presence. Players will find themselves immersed in the intense energy of the four tracks playing simultaneously. Perform with skill, and you can unleash powerful bursts of musical energy, causing less talented individuals to falter and be defeated, with the ultimate victor being crowned the Master of Puppets (most likely).

In addition to that, Metallica will be making an appearance at the Rocket Racing tent, complete with a specially designed track, car, and LEGO replicas of the band members. Is there anything more intense than that?

Do you enjoy Metallica’s music? Could anyone have predicted that the band would rise to prominence in a video game primarily aimed at a younger audience who may not be familiar with their music? And now, let’s turn our attention to the comments section below.

Star Wars Outlaws PS5 Demo Falls Short of Delivering the Full Experience, According to Critic

Star Wars Outlaws, although it appeared visually stunning during Ubisoft’s livestream earlier this week, has received some criticism for feeling somewhat outdated. A preview unfavorably compared the release to Uncharted: Golden Abyss, the PS Vita exclusive spin-off that was launched in 2011. However, according to the creative director, the sampler is merely a small taste of what the full experience has to offer.

“When entering a show of this nature, where you’re finalizing a game’s production, you’re faced with numerous decisions. Our producer limited us to just one demo for all the shows we would attend throughout the year, such as Gamescom and Comic-Con,” Julian Gerighty explained in an interview with VGC.

He explained that the events are designed to cater to both consumers and journalists. To ensure an engaging experience, they opted for a 20-minute format that offers a diverse range of content and showcases different game systems. However, they intentionally avoided showcasing the open-world experience at this particular event, as they plan to unveil it during the studio tour and preview event. This will be a brief overview, more of an appetizer than a full meal when it comes to the game.

According to Gerighty, the developer Massive Entertainment has crafted a highly engaging game, with only a portion of its greatness showcased here.

Admittedly, the comments do make sense. It’s common knowledge that creating demos requires a significant amount of the team’s focus. If a game plans to showcase itself at consumer conventions, it can’t just offer a short gameplay experience of two or three hours. That simply won’t suffice when attendees are patiently waiting in line. This seems to be just a subpar demo, which is unfortunate. However, it may not be something to worry too much about in the end.

Ubisoft has given us our first look at The Sky Breaker, the first DLC story pack for Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora. In it, a strange shadow will appear in the sky and threaten the Na’vi clans, who just can’t seem to get a break. It comes out next month on PS5, on July 16th.

A new part of the Upper Plains called “The Heart of the Plains” can be reached by taking the Sky Breaker. Some well-known biomes have changed into new types, and there are also many new ones. Of course, the RDA has also sent out new types of enemies, so you need to be careful. The good news is that not everything is bad. During the Na’vi Festival of Games, players can look forward to timed tasks that are a little less scary. Secrets of the Spires, another story pack, is still planned to be added to the game at some point.
