Operation Red Crow Map Preview: Skyscraper

04/11/2016 10:26 AM

Get ready for vertiginous rappels in the hazy morning sun with Rainbow Six Siege’s Season Four Operation Red Crow. Our fourth Post-Launch free map is perched high above the streets of Nagoya, Japan, set on top of Skyscraper.


To learn more about the development of this unique map, we asked R6 Art Director Gregory Fromenteau a few questions. He started with the story that inspired the map: “You are mobilized to neutralize an organized crime threat within a Yakuza-filled mansion high above the streets of Nagoya,” Fromenteau explained. “There is a faction within the Higasiyama-gumi that rebels against their leader, which triggers terrible violence.


As for the Art Direction, “We played with various opposites while designing this map. For instance we mixed beauty with bloodshed, serenity with vertigo, and art with destruction. The goal was to trigger a sense of vertigo, no matter where you stood in the map.


Fromenteau acknowledged drawing inspiration from classic Japanese filmmakers to give depth to the map. “It was an opportunity to revisit traditional Japanese architecture, mixing it with modern ventilation units, pipes, and the helipad also inhabiting this space. It was our way to create a dynamic map that would celebrate Japan from past to present.



The daytime ambiance is very early on a foggy day, just before sunrise. The horizon is filled with heavy hues of red. For nighttime, Fromenteau picked an ambiance that would clash with the spiritual haze of the morning, having bright neon lights polluting the busy skyline.


Join us on the Official Twitch channel on November 12th-13th during the PC & Xbox One Pro League Finals. Tune in on the 12th for more information about Skyscraper’s unique game play, plus the PC & Xbox One Semi-Finals. Also, don’t miss the full live demo on the next day during the PC & Xbox One Finals.
