Rainbow Six Siege continues to defy standards, growing in popularity the further the game moves from its release. With continued momentum, Ubisoft has confirmed that the studio is working on the third year of content, no doubt following established patterns of four expansion releases throughout a calendar year. Though this year’s content was interrupted due to the unplanned Operation Health over the summer, the final expansion centered on the special forces of South Korea is fast approaching and one of the three operators appears to have leaked early.
After Ubisoft accidentally publishing the character preview to the official Rainbow Six Siege website, Redditors managed to capture the information before it was quickly taken down. The first South Korean operator from the White Tigers special unit is Grace “Dokkaebi” Nam, who is a computer hacker specialist. The description labels her as a trickster and a D.I.Y. specialist who is able to navigate around firewalls with ease. She also boasts a few game-specific tropes as well, like an addiction to energy drinks.
While the post doesn’t reveal what sort of ability or gadget she’ll be using, many fans have started to speculate that Grace will likely be able to hack other gadgets, or perhaps use decoys to mess with her enemies. The post does confirm that she’ll be able to utilize both short and long range weaponry with a primary MK 14 EBR Marksman Rife and two secondary weapons (the C75 Auto and SMG-12).
When Operation White Noise launches, Dokkaebi will be joined by her other South Korean 707th Special Mission Battalion counterpart as well as the second and final operator from the Polish GROM unit. In addition, a new map called Mok Myeok takes players high up into the sky inside of a massive tower. Official details and gameplay are coming this weekend, as Ubisoft is planning on the full reveal during the Pro League from November 18-19.
