Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Extraction might have been delayed, but if you’re still in the mood for some alien-slaying mixed into your Siege then Ubisoft has just the event for you. Called Containment, the event is inspired by Extraction, sending players to a reworked version of the Consulate map overruled by the Chimera Parasite in a new game mode called Nest Destruction.
In Nest Destruction, players fight for control over an alien nest. 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.
The event will begin tomorrow, Aug. 3, and run for three weeks until Aug. 24. Midway through the event, Rainbow Six Siege will also be free between Aug. 13 and 15, in which time players can earn twice as many bonus Battle Pass points.
A press release sent to Twinfinite tees up the event’s story premise:
This event offers a tease into the world of Extraction in Rainbow Six Siege, where a team of REACT agents (attackers) will intervene to destroy Nests and will face a team of Proteans, a deadly Archæan variant that can adopt the form of REACT operators (defenders) and attempt to mimic their behavior with maximum speed and with 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. Attackers will have a standard loadout without modifiers and only have access to a reduced Operators selection.
Containment features 33 unique collectibles for 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.
