on February 1, 2017 3:09 PM

Today, Ubisoft revealed the second (and last) Operator from Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege upcoming Operation, Velvet Shell. Velvet Shell is the first Operation of the game’s Year 2 content:  it adds a new map and two operators from Spain. One of these Operators is called Jackal. The other, revealed today, is called Mira.

According to Ubisoft, Mira is all about demolition. She can plaster a breaching devices across reinforced barriers and walls, and blow them up. The explosions punch a perfect, rectangular murder hole through the barricade. Ubisoft says there is more to Mira, but you will have to wait until the Six Invitational, which runs from February 3-5 to see. The livestream will also serve as the full reveal of Velvet Shell. 

Velvet Shell is Rainbow Six Siege Year 2’s first big update, and will work like all previous updates in Year 1. This means the map will be free to everyone, while the two operators will be free for Year 2 Season Pass holders, or unlocked via Renown or R6 Credit.

Rainbow Six Siege is available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Below, you can check out Mira:
