Ubisoft shared new details of the upcoming final season from the game’s Year 4 content, called Operation Shifting Tides, at yesterday’s Rainbow Six Siege Pro League Finals in Tokoname.
As you can see in the video above, Kali’s rifle can also be used to break through wooden barricades or hatches with just one shot (as long as they’re not reinforced) and comes with an underslung explosive launcher for blasting chunks out of sturdier structures.
To counteract the weapon’s lethality, players that are downed by it will automatically face the direction the shot came from, allowing them to better locate Kali’s position.
The reworked Theme Park map contains the following changes:
“The Rail Platform has been removed and the East and West sections have been brought closer together. Inside the building, the East section has largely evolved, primarily the downstairs area. Gargoyle and Haunting Dining bomb sites are replaced with the Throne Room and Armory pair. The new Gong Room in this area also becomes the main entrance, while the Arcade Entrance is now blocked.”
Both Kali and Wamai will be instantly available at launch to those who purchased the Year 4 Pass or have a Uplay+ subscription, with everyone else able to purchase them a week later using Renown or R6 Credits.
Ahead of its public roll out, PC players can test out the new content from today via the game’s Test Server, with the option to report any bugs or glitches to the developers through the R6 Fix platform.

Tri-Heart Interactive, a Manchester-based independent studio, have released a trailer for their upcoming shooter/party game hybrid, The Otterman Empire.
Alongside competitive multiplayer, there are also "intense and immersive" single player and co-op campaigns, where players must stop Tiko - a deranged scientist - from destroying the empire by completing a variety of challenges across an entire galaxy.
"Working with the community hands-on has been a big eye-opener for us as developers," said Kieran Rogers, Managing Director at Tri-Heart Interactive.
"Coming out the gate as a ‘community-driven game developer’ has impacted the choices we’ve made every step of the way. Having a tight-knit community that is as invested in the game as much as we are, gives us a broader perspective on a project that we are so close to and it has helped us to create a party game we’re really proud of."
The Otterman Empire is due to launch on Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC early next year. You can keep up to date via the official website.

Crystal Dynamics have released a new game overview video for Marvel's Avengers, the perfect accompaniment to a recent interview with Studio Creative Director, Noah Hughes, over on the PlayStation Blog.
There are two types of missions in Marvel's Avengers, Heroic and Warzone. Heroic Missions are single player outings, designed to showcase each hero as you reassemble the team through the campaign, whilst Warzone are online missions that can be played solo or with a group of up to four. After completing the introductory A-Day mission, players are free to jump straight into multiplayer, though you will be exposed to spoilers.
Progression is persistent between modes and difficulty scales depending on the size and makeup of your team.
As you level up, you'll be able to unlock new abilities, some will simply increase your attack power and others will allow you change up your playstyle and build your very own roster of heroes with unique ability sets. New suits for your chosen Avengers can be purchased or unlocked but these are cosmetic only, separate from Gear and the Perks they offer.
Any post-launch characters will be added free of charge to those who own the base game, though Crystal Dynamics aren't ready to go into detail just yet, with Hughes stating, "We treat each of these Heroes as wanting to be able to star in their own game…. The truth is the hardest thing is deciding which Heroes to not make.”
Marvel's Avengers launches 15 May on Xbox One, PS4, PC and Stadia.
