Ubisoft has released the first official info on Rainbow Six Siege's first DLC map ahead of its release later today.

The new map, which is simply called 'Yacht', is set on and around a "luxury yacht [that] has crashed into an iceberg breaching the hull", and is included as part of a major free update hitting the online shooter today.

Two new operators are included in the update, too, although they'll be exclusive to Season Pass owners until February 9. After then, all other players will be able to unlock them for 25,000 Renown or £3.99 each. Official details on them have yet to be revealed, but judging by the initial screenshots, they appear to be 'Frost' and 'Buck', the two operators leaked last month.

The update is due to roll out across PS4, Xbox One and PC at the following times this morning, although the full patch notes are still to be revealed.

  • 14:00-14:30 GMT on PS4
  • 15:00-15:30 GMT on Xbox One
  • 16:00-16:30 GMT on PC

Three more maps and six new operators are also due to be released for free before the end of the year.
