Learn About Rainbow Six Siege’s Outbreak Event and See the Space Capsule Trailer

Posted by at 4:41 am on February 6, 2018

The start of Rainbow Six Siege‘s third year of content is quickly approaching, kicking off next month with the Operation Chimera update and the Outbreak event. Ubisoft  has shared a cryptic trailer that sheds more light on the mysterious threat that awaits players.

Outbreak is a free event that’s much different from anything else in Rainbow Six Siege. The event is set in the town of Truth or Consequences, New Mexico, which has been quarantined after the outbreak of “an infestation of unknown origin.” As the above trailer reveals, the infestation is actually the Apex parasite, which has come to Truth or Consequences via a mysterious space capsule that crashed near the town. Those who are infected by the parasite turn into monsters, and it falls to players to keep it from breaking out of the quarantine zone.

“Being designed for co-op, they are also more linear and feature a clear sense of progression,” Ubisoft said in an update on the game’s official website. “Nevertheless, the destruction and multi-path approach that are iconic to Rainbow Six Siege are still very much present.”

Outbreak begins on PS4, Xbox One, and PC on March 6 and runs for four weeks. Players will be able to team up with two friends in the event, which features three exclusive, co-op-oriented maps that are larger and “more open” than the game’s typical PvP maps.
