Ubisoft has announced that they are currently testing South African servers for Rainbow Six Siege. The other great news is that the next season will finally bring an African operator to the game.
The brand new operator, Wamai, will be arriving as part of Rainbow Six Siege Operation Shifting Tides, and hails from East Africa, Kenya.
The new season also includes another operator from India named Kali.
Both operators met each other in the NIGHTHAVEN Special Intervention Company, a private military group owned and led by Kali. Wamai worked alongside Kali as one of the groups best operator.
Wamai uses a gadget called the Mag-NET System, which attracts enemy projectiles and can detonate them. This means that he is able to make grenades useless and can even use them against users.
Kali, on the other hand, has a deadly CSRX 300 sniper rifle that can breach barricades with one single shot.
Operation Shifting Tides will also include a reworked Theme Park map, which will affect how players battle on the map.
Along with the announcement, Ubisoft also revealed that they will be testing local South African servers for Rainbow Six Siege. The testing will begin on the 11th of November 2019.
If all goes well South Africa will get their own permanent live servers, which means less lag. This is something Rainbox Six Siege fans have been asking for. It’s great to see Ubisoft finally answering the requests.
