Rainbow Six: Siege shows off North Star animated trailer during Ubisoft Forward

By Tom West,
Ubisoft showcased North Star, the second season of Rainbow Six: Siege's Year 6, with a new animated trailer and a look at the new Operator, Thunderbird.

When North Star arrives, it adds Thunderbird as a new Operator, and introduces a map rework of Favela. Thunderbird is a Defender whose unique ability, the Ko´na Station, acts as a sort of safe hub for other injured Operators. We got a closer look at Thunderbird in action in the animated video above.

You can also expect to see cross-play between Xbox and PlayStation, and cross-progression between all platforms to be added to the game in early 2022.
