LONDON, UK — 19TH APRIL, 2022 — Today, Ubisoft announced that Emerald Plains, the first new map added to Rainbow Six Siege in three years, is now available for all players on PlayStation®4, PlayStation®5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X | S, Windows PC including on Xbox Game Pass, Ubisoft+, Ubisoft’s subscription service, Amazon Luna, and Stadia.*
 
Experience the rolling hills of Northern Ireland in the Emerald Plains country club and private ranch. In the idyllic setting, players can explore the grounds to develop the best approach for their matches, whether it be risking a rappel through the skylight, taking advantage of the three interior stairs, or seeking cover beside the fireplace atrium.
 
The two floors inside Emerald Plains are distinct, with a modern bottom floor contrasting against the classic style of the manor's upper floor, to emphasise clear call-outs and orientation landmarks. Partially inspired by Bartlett and Border, these spacious rooms provide a large playground in this medium-sized map. Players can jump into Emerald Plains as part of Year 7 Season 1 Demon Veil with new Operator Azami. The new Defender is equipped with the game-changing Kiba Barrier gadget that repairs holes in walls and floors, offering a more mobile and versatile defensive approach.
 
Year 7 will bring more new maps, cross-play and cross-progression, continued efforts to encourage positive player behaviour with a Reputation System, new permanent game modes including Team Deathmatch, and many more updates.

About Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege  
Alongside a thriving professional esports scene and a community of over 80 million registered players, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege puts players in the middle of a fast-paced, ever-evolving multiplayer experience grounded in the selection of unique Operators. Using the right mix of tactics and destruction, Rainbow Six teams engage their enemies in sieges, where both sides have exclusive skills and gadgets at their disposal. Defenders prepare by transforming the environments around them into modern strongholds, while attackers use recon drones to gain intel for carefully planning their assault. With access to dozens of Operators inspired by real world counter-intelligence agents from around the globe, players can choose exactly how they want to approach each challenge they encounter. Through the constant addition of new Operators and maps that add to the depth of both strategy and combat, the unpredictability of each round of Rainbow Six Siege sets a new bar for intensity and competition in gaming.
