Rainbow Six Siege’s Y8S4 Operation Deep Freeze is just around the corner, and players are already getting excited to try out all the new content that will be released with the new season.

Ubisoft unveiled the upcoming season of Rainbow Six Siege, which is titled Operation Deep Freeze during the R6 Atlanta Major. While the new seasonal content is already available on the PC Test Server, not many players decide to try the TS.

R6 Siege has a history of not promoting the release of new seasonal content, thus leaving players uncertain and uninformed about the release date. But you have come to the right place to find the exact release date of Y8S4.

Rainbow Six Siege Y8S4 Operation Deep Freeze will introduce the Portuguese operator Tubarão. Hailing from Portugal, Tubarão is a 2-speed, 2-health Defender with versatile weapons and gadgets suitable for roamer and anchor roles.

Alongside the new defender, players can expect the latest ‘Lair’ map, new game modes such as AI playlists, Frag Grenade rework, and a lot more.
