Ahead of the newest season of 'Rainbow Six Siege', a new operator has been added to the roster - one, with a decidedly Irish twist.

The new season brings new updates with the addition of the Irish operator Thorn, along with a rework of the map Outback, new default colours of the teams, and a new Battle Pass featuring a new exotic weapon skin, along with quality of life improvements for Ubisoft's hit game.

Thorn comes equipped with the Razorbloom Shell, a throwable proximity device that once triggered initiates a timed blast.

If an enemy player doesn’t get out of the area of effect on time, they will receive damage at the hands of Thorne's fuse timer.

Thorn is a medium speed, medium armour Operator, and her loadout consists of the new custom made UZK50Gi or the M870 as primary weapons and the 1911 TACOPS or the C75-AUTO as secondary weapons.

The other headline feature of the new update is the revamping of the Outback map, which has been rebuilt to improve balancing and player comfort.

Both the main building and its exterior have been tweaked to allow Attackers to create and execute more effective strategies, while exterior soft walls have been added to the building allowing for more dynamic entranes.

Year 6 Season 4 comes with a brand-new Battle Pass, including 100 tiers and 131 rewards, is available until 21st February 2022.

The Battle Pass includes a free and a Premium track available for 1200 R6 Credits and owners of the Premium Battle Pass can play as Thorn immediately and progress faster, while other players can unlock her with Renown or R6 Credits starting 14th December 2021.
