Ubisoft recently wrapped the Six Invitational in Montreal, host to an unveiling of the upcoming Operation Void Edge expansion, while outlining future Year 5 content plans. The three-week Test Server (TS) trial is now live on PC, providing an initial hands-on with its featured Operators and map, accompanied by a variety of quality-of-life gameplay changes. The TS kick-off has also spotlighted traces of unreleased cosmetic items, including an upcoming Elite skin for Polish attacker, Zofia.
Zofia’s Elite skin, titled Duch Bojowy, takes inspiration from Polish military attire, lightly translating to “Spirit Combat.” Unearthed through TS game files by RolyNoly1 on Twitter, the premium bundle suits Zofia in blue uniform with a grey beret, retaining signatures of her vanilla styling. We also receive glimpse of an accompanying black M762 skin with white and gold accents.
While Zofia’s Elite skin appears ready for prime time, its formal unveiling is likely set for Year 5 Season 2 in May 2020. With the Caveira Elite preluding Void Edge, and an Ash Tomb Raider crossover to follow, Ubisoft’s usual release schedule suggests availability alongside its next major update.
Rainbow Six Siege has a large year ahead, with Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 support confirmed alongside cross-play. Operation Void Edge is kicking off the new year with two new operators, Iana and Oryx, alongside multiple map reworks.
