Ubisoft has announced Rainbow Six Siege Year 2's first operation, called Operation Velvet Shell, will release on the 7th of February on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
Operation Velvet Shell is themed around the Spanish special forces group (Grupo Especial de Operaciones). It includes two new Operators, which will be free to anyone who purchases a season pass for Year Two, while everyone else will need to unlock them via in-game currency. The new map is also set in Spain and will be available for everyone at no additional cost.
In addition, Ubisoft also announced that Rainbow Six Siege will be playable for free on PS4, Xbox One, and PC this weekend, February 2-5. Your in-game progression will carry over to the full game should you buy it.
