Ubisoft Revealed New Rainbow Six Siege Outback Map

Ubisoft has announced Rainbow Six Siege new Australian outback map which will be available as part of Operation Burnt Horizon, the first season of the Year 4 lineup.

Outback is set in Australia’s Red Heart and a passing nuclear convoy came crashing to a halt while under attack at a pit stop, forcing locals and patrons to flee and causing Rainbow to be called in. Assistant Level Design Director Jacques Wong says they referred to Oregon and Clubhouse maps when designing Outback.

We divided the map into three distinct sections – the Garage, the Motel, and the Restaurant – and put a lot of effort into making sure each section is recognizable, even from far away. There are specific colors for each section, and we used lighting and geometry to direct the player’s gaze to where they need to go.

Additionally, Wong wanted to emphasize on the impact of player decision-making and maintaining a style of gameplay that players have enjoyed in the past. As an example, there’s a limited number of doors between each sections and roamers can still create new paths by destroying walls, and there’s always the option of changing floors as a flanking strategy. It’s a medium-sized map, so players won’t need to go far to find alternative routes.

The full reveal of Operation Burnt Horizon will go live on Rainbow Six Twitch Channel during the Six Invitational in Montreal on February 17.
