Year 2 Season 3 Kickoff and Sneak Peek

08/14/2017 12:00 PM

Following Operation Health and some of its major updates such as the One-Step Interactive Matchmaking and the release of Alpha Packs, we are glad to officially kickoff our new season set in Hong Kong.

But before we jump in the next season, we would like to thank you for your engagement during Operation Health. As a cornerstone for ensuring our longevity, we are grateful for our players’ continued support and feedback.

Operation Blood Orchid and the S.D.U.

In Operation Blood Orchid, two Operators from the Special Duties Unit (S.D.U.) join Team Rainbow to raid the criminal organization squatting our new free map, Theme Park.

And there is more: our new season will feature a driven 30-year-old Operator representing Poland’s Military Unit GROM, who will join Team Rainbow as one of its youngest recruits.

Operation Health Final Phase

We will also make a final push for our Operation Health by having optimized and streamlined the memory footprint used for our maps and Operators, making room for the upcoming year. This involves reworking textures, improving dynamic and static lighting, updating our Sky models and the Bidirectional Reflectance Distribution Function (BRDF), and much more.
