Rainbow Six Siege: Operation Ember Rise will introduce a new attacker and a new defender: Amaru and Goyo from Peru and Mexico. The map Kanal has also been entirely reworked with improved navigation as part of Year 4 Season 3.
Here’s a description of the new characters:
Peruvian attacker Amaru and Mexican defender Goyo will bring verticality and fire in-game. Amaru, a former archeologist, is equipped with a G8A1 automatic rifle and a Supernova shotgun. Notably, Amaru will also possess the ability to access any high position in record time with her Garra hook and finish with a Garra kick which instantly takes out an opponent standing behind the window, making her a perfect flanker. Amaru helped to raise Goyo, a former member of the Mexican Fuerzas Especiales who uses the dangerous Volcán Shield. Like the ordinary Deployable Shield, the Volcán Shield provides cover and allows Defenders to block pathways, but Goyo can turn up the heat with an attached incendiary bomb and make it burst.
In addition to the two new recruits, players will also be able to explore a reimagined Kanal map, newly reworked to make it easier to rotate and navigate with a new path linking the eastern and western buildings. According to Ubisoft, there are other changes as well:
Two staircases have been added to make the entire map more vertical and the number of indoor playable areas has been increased, with some rooms also seeing an expansion. Last but not least, all bomb sites have been changed from the Kitchen to the Security Room and the site in the Radio Room is now found in the expanded Lounge Room.
