Fight for Humanity’s Last Hope in Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six® Siege’s Limited-Time Apocalypse Event
From May 5 until May 18, players must scavenge a wasteland to ensure their clan’s survival
SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA – May 4, 2021 – Today, Ubisoft® announced a new limited-time event for Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege Year 6 Season 1, ‘Apocalypse’, beginning tomorrow and running for two weeks until May 18. Apocalypse introduces a post-apocalyptic version of Outback, where players will have to fight for their clan, hope and freedom to revitalise life.
In the world of Apocalypse, humanity’s dependence on nuclear energy has ultimately led to the fall of civilisation and the emergence of two clans, The Keepers and The Warband. These warriors and scavengers seek the last plant on Earth, which holds the power to re-grow life on Earth.
The new game mode, Canister, will have players fight as The Keepers (Defenders) or The Warband (Attackers) for the last remaining plant on Earth. Defenders can move the canister containing the plant around the map, while the Attackers can activate specific scanner rooms to detect defenders as they roam through the rooms. The main objective of the Attacking side is to defuse the canister transporting the plant. On the Defending side, Operators must protect the canister until time runs out. Either team can also secure the win if they eliminate the opposing team entirely. Who will hold the key to humanity’s new future?
The Apocalypse event comes with its own Collection of 35 items featuring Fuze, Gridlock, Maverick, Nomad, Twitch, Maestro, Melusi, Rook, Smoke and Valkyrie. Players will have access to personalised headgear, weapon skins and uniforms. 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 Apocalypse Packs for 300 R6 Credits or 12,500 Renown.
