According to the official blurb, Alibi is a Defender inspired by the Raggruppamento Operativo Speciale unit from Italy, and is described as a "cunning woman" who is skilled at penetrating the dense networks of 'organized crime'.

Called Alibi (real name Aria de Luca), she's a defender created to find clever ways to exploit the attackers' tactics. She was born in Tripoli, Libya and immigrated with her family when she was three years old. De Luca earned her understanding of Italian firearms through the family business and training on the shooting range. "Following the event, a Carabinieri recruiter convinced her to join the police force".

Ahead of the full May 20th reveal, Ubisoft has released a teaser on one of its two new Italian operators headed to Rainbow Six Siege. Her operator codename is "Alibi", and this fits when looking at her special ability that is teased in the trailer. The Season 2 content is being called Operation Para Bellum.

It's shaping up beautifully so far and we can't wait to see more!

The reason for the balance adjustment to the speed is because Ubisoft noted that the game has a speed vs armor meta-game, and the developers noticed that in every single situation speed won out over armor, making the latter moot in the first person shooter.

The Rainbow Six: Siege free weekend will run from May 17 through May 20 and is available on PC, Xbox One, and PS4.
