Ubisoft has added a new map to Rainbow Six Siege, a country club and estate in Northern Ireland called Emerald Plains. It is the first new play environment to be added to the game in three years. The new map can be played from Wednesday.
The new map, Emerald Plains, or Emerald Plains, consists of a two-storey castle in Northern Ireland with the surrounding estate. The building serves as a country club, with the ground floor being modernly furnished and the top floor being a classic country house. The mansion has a skylight that can be shot down and rappelled through, three stairwells and an atrium with many objects to hide behind. The map is inspired by the maps border and Bartlett University.
The medium folder is part of Year 7 Season 1, Demon Veil and comes with Operator Azami. That is a defending Operator from Japan with a throwable kiba knife that on impact releases a material that solidifies into a bulletproof surface. Azami was already added to the new season in March.
The map has been playable on Rainbow Six Siege’s Test Server since March 23, but was added to the live server on Tuesday night. It is the 21st map to be added to the game, but the last was from March 2019 when the map Outback was added to Year 4, Season 1. The map is medium in size and can be played in Ranked, Unranked, Quick Match, Team Deathmatch, Newcomer and Lone Wolf PvE game modes. In the patch notes can be read that in addition to a new map, work has also been done on balancing a number of characters and gadgets.
