Sam has a lot of tricks up his sleeve.
Last week, we got the tease that Sam Fisher, of Splinter Cell fame, would be joining the cast of Rainbow Six Siege. Sam looked quite a bit different, seemingly being a younger version of the secret agent we’ve come to know and love. Now, though, we got some details on what it’ll be like to step in his boots in Siege, as well as other changes coming with Operation Shadow Legacy.
A new trailer shows off Fisher, who goes by the codename Zero. For fans of the Splinter Cell franchise, you’ll instantly notice the assault rifle and sidearm he uses is from that series. But his gadget is the real star of the show, as it allows you to shoot small, drillable camera into a variety of surfaces that you can use to monitor both sides of said surfaces, which will give you a view of areas you opponets are in for both Fisher and his allies. They aren’t just for spying, as you they can shoot small bullets that can destroy other gadgets, as well as inflict minor damage to other players.
Alongside Fisher, we also got details on the new ping system, lots of new gun sights, a rework of the Chalet map, the ability to rewatch your previous 12 matches in spectator view, and more. You can watch the full trailer below.
Rainbow Six Siege is available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, with the game confirmed to be coming to PS5 and Xbox Series X. As of now there’s no release date for Operation Shadow Legacy.
