Ubisoft has spilled the beans on the next season for their tactical team shooter Rainbow Six Siege. Operation Ember Rise will - as with previous seasons - bring two new operators to the burgeoning roster of counter-terrorist characters, along with a reworked map, improving the flow and strategic options for a familiar locale.
Our new Attacker is Azucena Rocio Quispe, known by her call-sign "Amaru". Amaru is a Peruvian archaeologist who has spent most of her life traipsing through the jungles, keeping important cultural treasures and finds out of the hands of vicious thieves and organised cartels. Having show excellent field traversal skills and a knack for anthropology, Amaru has been signed up to Rainbow as its new Attacker.
Amaru's gadget is pretty wild, even by Siege standards, and consists of a Batman-style grapple gun - the Garra Hook - that can take her from ground level to - or even through - a barricaded window with ease. This will allow Amaru to quickly and efficiently enter a building from her chosen position with speed and ease, although she makes a helluva noise as she comes barreling through the boards. The Garra Hook can also be utilised to burst through hatches. Talk about making an entrance. Given the rapidity of her ascent, it's difficult to imagine her as a team player, as she seems best suited to shoot off on her own and add an element of surprise to the breach. Amaru is a 2 Armour 2 Speed operator.
