But, we can hope for the best and earliest so that the players get to enjoy and indulge in new content and experience the change that Ubisoft's new developer team brings as they kick start the fifth year(expansion) to the base game released back in 2015.
About the New Operators
The defender is supposedly a male, recognized by the name Onyx who has the special ability to charge through walls. More or less like a walking and shooting impact grenade. No more "Kobe" spam for defenders!
The attacker, on the contrary, has the proposed ability to create a hologram and control its movements which resembles majorly another world-renowned game, Apex Legends' character Mirage which is also equipped with a similar ability to create and control its holograms.
So far their faces have been fractionally revealed in a cover art released by Ubisoft.Published 12 Feb 2020, 06:21 IST
