Operation Neon Dawn kicks off Rainbow Six Siege Year 5’s final season today. The new season brings a brand-new operator, the rework of the Skyscraper map as well as new accessibility settings.
Owners of the Year 5 Pass can play with Aruni immediately. Other players can unlock her with Renown or R6 Credits starting December 8. New seasonal content, including the Skyscraper map rework, is available for free to all players. Year 5 Season 4 also welcomes the Battle Pass, which is available now through February 22.
Equipped with an original gadget called the Surya Gate, Aruni can deploy laser gates on walls, hatches, doors, and windows. Those gates damage Attackers and their utility but turn off to allow defenders access. The gate is intended as an obstacle, zapping all drones, projectiles, and damage Operators. Aruni comes with a P10 RONI or a MK 14 EBR as a primary weapon, and a PRB 92 as a secondary weapon.
In addition to the new Operator, players can now discover a reimagined Skyscraper map. The map is newly reworked with three major objectives. The first is driving Attackers inside by lowering the number of balconies and relocating them to remove some of the crossfire players could create previously from outside. An entirely new rotation between the two sides of the building on the second floor was also added. Lastly, the bomb sites have been balanced to make them all more competitive.
Operation Neon Dawn also marks the launch of the Sixth Guardian program. As of today, Rainbow Six Siege players can purchase a bundle with a uniform, weapon skin, charm, and headgear for Doc. One hundred percent of net proceeds are donated to The AbleGamers Charity.
Rainbow Six Siege: Operation Neon Dawn is now available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X. It’s also available as part of Ubisoft’s Uplay subscription service on PC. The next-gen version launched today.
