Rainbow Six Siege Containment
Rainbow Six Siege fans are counting down to the start of the Containment event.
The Containment event has an August 3 release date on PlayStation, Xbox and PC.
There’s no official launch time at the time of writing, but previous events have kicked off around 6pm BST UK time.
Containment runs for three weeks straight, which means you can enjoy the event until August 24.
As part of the Containment event, Ubisoft has announced plans to unleash a brand new game mode.
“Today, Ubisoft announced a new time-limited PvP event for Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege, Containment,” Ubisoft explains.
“The event starts tomorrow, 3rd August, and will run for three weeks until 24th August.
“Inspired by the upcoming game Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Extraction, Containment sets the players in a reworked version of the Consulate map overruled by the Chimera Parasite in a new game mode called Nest Destruction.”
Rainbow Six Siege’s Nest Destruction mode is a player-vs-player event in which teams fight over a Nest.
“On one hand, attackers will be given a two-tiered objective scenario: destroy the nest to open the final objective and win the round.
“On the other hand, to be the victorious ones, defenders will have to rely on melee attacks and Oryx’s Ramah Dash to stop their opponents.
“Of course, there is always a last solution to secure the win – players can rely on the old but efficient way: get rid of the opposing team entirely.”
According to Ubisoft, Defenders will be provided with additional Health and other special abilities, but will be weaponless for the whole game.
Attackers, on the other hand, will spawn with a standard loadout without modifiers, and only have access to a reduced Operators selection.
Needless to say, the Containment event launches alongside 33 unique items for Rainbow Six Siege operators. This includes IQ, Ace, Blackbeard, Amaru and Zero on the attacking side, as well as Aruni, Jager, Kaid, Mira and Warden on the defending team.
“The collection includes headgear, uniforms, and weapon skins. Each operator’s exclusive, time-limited customisation items are available for purchase as Bundles in the Shop section for 1680 R6 credits or via the Containment Packs for 300 R6 Credits or 12500 Renown.”
As an added bonus, the game will be free to play from August 13 until August 15. Existing players will earn twice as many Battle Pass points during the trial period.
The event launches just a few days after the Y6S2.2 update, which made major changes across the board. According to the patch notes, countless operators received balance updates, while dozens of bug fixes were implemented across the board.
