Operation: Para Bellum Is The Next Siege Update

Ubisoft has revealed the name of their next major update for Rainbow Six: Siege and it is called Operation: Para Bellum. In Latin, it stands for “prepare for war” from the phrase Si vis pacem, para bellum, which can be roughly translated to “If you want peace, prepare for war”.

Like the Latin title suggests, this new Operation will take place in Italy and will feature two new defenders since we got two attackers in Operation Chimera. As with every new Operation, players will also be getting a new map that Ubisoft calls “our most competitive map to date.” Not much else is know about the map but it looks like a villa that one would see in Assassin’s Creed 2.

Operation: Para Bellum will also be coming with gameplay adjustments that are currently available on PC in the TTS and will also include a Clubhouse map buff.

Ubisoft will fully reveal Para Bellum on their twitch channel on May 19-20th during the Pro League Finals, and you can read the full announcement here.
