After a long wait, the latest expansion, which adds three new operators, a new map, and a large number of gameplay fixes and balancing changes, has gone live.
Ubisoft released a new trailer for the operation. During the trailer, the new map is showcased, alongside the three new operators.
As mentioned previously, the new map for Operation Blood Orchid is Theme Park. It's a spooky-themed nighttime map that's based on an abandoned theme park. The trailer also shows off Ying and Lesion, the two new operators from Hong Kong. The trailer ends by giving a sneak peek at the third operator, Ela.
Ela is a Polish operator that was originally planned for a now-axed Polish themed operation.
While the trailer does show the three new operators in action, it doesn't do much to showcase their new abilities. We've provided a quick overview of the new operators below.
Ying is a Chinese attacker that can fire a cluster of flashbangs into a room to temporarily blind defenders.
Lesion is a Chinese defender that can throw a device down that can damage and disorientate enemies when it is detonated.
Ela is a Polish defender that can place down gadgets on the floor or on walls. Once the gadget is detonated, enemies nearby temporarily lose their hearing and are given a dizzying effect.
