Rainbow Six: Siege will get two new operators when the next season of content launches later this year on PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One.

Operation Grim Sky is the name of the next update for the tactical shooter. The first operator belongs to the defender class. She’s a Brit, a cop “who’s an expert on mob behavior and snatch-squad tactics.”

The second operator is an attacker, an American with “a remarkably sharp mind when it comes to tactical operations.”

Ubisoft Montreal also said that Rainbow Six: Siege would rework the Hereford Base map to “raise the bar for competitive play.”

Operation Grim Sky will also bring in weapon modifications to correct a misalignment issue with weapon sights.

More details on what Operation Grim Sky will deliver are coming Aug. 17 to Aug. 19 at the Six Major in Paris, an inaugural Rainbow Six: Siege esports tournament packing a $350,000 prize pool, with $150,000 going to the winning club.
