It looks like Rainbow Six Siege will try and rope in players for Rainbow Six Extraction, as a new LTM (limited-time event) PvP mode called “Containment” starts tomorrow, and will be available until August 24! Check out the trailer and details for this Rainbow Six Siege new LTM below.
In the event, a team of REACT agents (attackers will be deployed to destroy Nets and will face Porteans, a deadly Archæan variant that can adopt the form of REACT operators (defenders). These mimics will be able to move faster, but will be limited to melee attacks only. Defenders will be provided with additional Health, Aruni’s Punch, and Oryx’s special abilities, but will be weaponless for the whole game
As for attackers, they will have your standard oadout without modifiers, and only have access to a reduced Operators selection.
Here are more details straight from the press release:
Containment will introduce a new game mode, Nest Destruction, that will have players 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 victorious, defenders will have to rely on melee attacks and Oryx’s Ramah Dash to stop their opponents. Of course, players can rely on the old but efficient way to secure the win: get rid of the opposing team entirely.
The Containment event comes with its own collection of 33 unique items for Rainbow Six Siege operators including IQ, Ace, Blackbeard, Amaru, and Zero on the attacking side, and Aruni, Jager, Kaid, Mira, and Warden on the defending team. The collection includes headgear, uniforms, and weapon skins. Each operator’s exclusive, time-limited customization 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 for Rainbow Six Extraction, the game has been officially pushed back to January 2022.
