Rainbow Six Siege official artwork for Operator Aruni

[Update]: Rainbow Six Siege's co-op focused spin-off Extraction has now been unleashed.

I hope you're a fan of lasers, because once the next Operator Aruni makes her way into the game, Rainbow Six Siege will certainly be a lot more colorful! Aruni's laser grid gadget will be mountable over doors, walls, hatches and windows, and as you might expect, will fry or seriously wound anyone or anything foolish enough to simply smash into it face-first.

Naturally, such a power does come with a bit of a downside. One the laser grid has zapped a drone, projectile or even a player, it will need to momentarily power down in order to recharge. So even though it presents a formidable barrier, you will be able to bypass it by sacrificing some of your resources, though it certainly won't be a quiet entry!

As for what exactly all of this looks like in gameplay terms, as well as what else the Neon Dawn update brings to the table, that you can find out through the freshly posted developer preview. Have a gander, it's a rather informative one:

The exact release date for Operation Neon Dawn is currently unknown, but if it follows the usual pattern, I think it's safe to say it'll be here in late November or early December. You won't have to wait all that long to give it a try, however, as Neon Dawn will be heading to the test servers later today!

You can keep an eye on when the test servers will go live, as well as read a little bit more about Aruni, over at the official website. Have fun, and don't forget to give Ubisoft some much-needed feedback if you decide to jump into the test server!
