Looks like Ubisoft want to change some of the old maps over making new ones this year (Picture: Ubisoft)
Ubisoft showcased their plans for year five this weekend with the new Siege roadmap. The biggest talking points are that they are committing to reworking old maps instead of adding more into the game. We will still be getting new operators as usual but this year there seems to be a lot more effort on reworks.
When you look at the Siege roadmap the first thing to note is the four maps that are getting reworks. We’ve already seen the changes being brought into Oregon. With the map looking to make sites other than bedrooms and basement viable options. The next one to be changed is House which will be a welcome change for fans. House is possibly the smallest map in Siege, because the map is so compact it can be over so quickly. It will be interesting to see what Ubisoft do to the map when we get into year five-season two.
The last two maps that are getting reworked are Skyscraper and Chalet. Skyscraper is a hit and miss map, after the top floor has been defended the last two sites can be a fiesta. It has some great aspects as a map but we can see why it should be reworked. Chalet is a very familiar map for players and fans but we can see why it should be reworked.
This year well see six operators get added instead of the usual eight. This might mean that two reworks are coming for current operators. Ubisoft has already confirmed Tachanka will be one of those that is getting a rework. The other operator who is getting reworked is yet to be announced but if we had to make a guess it could be Blackbeard. The community has been asking for his rework for a while now but only time will tell as to if he is.
This year will also see arcade playlists in each season. This is probably inspired by their successful events like the Halloween and April Fools events. Each season will get their own battle pass as well to promote and showcase content to players.
