Last week we reported on a likely new limited-time event coming to Rainbow Six Siege called ‘Containment’ – which looked like it was going to tie-in with the upcoming Rainbow Six Extraction. Ubisoft has now confirmed that the Siege Containment event is real, it begins August 3, and it is indeed inspired by the next Rainbow Six game.
The Rainbow Six Extraction release date has been pushed back several times, but you’re now getting a chance to get a taste of the new title in the new Nest Destruction game mode – which launches tomorrow and runs all the way up to August 24. Even better, Siege will get a free weekend from August 13-15, so everyone can give it a go.
The Containment event takes place entirely in a reworked version of the Consulate map that has been overrun by Rainbow Six Extraction’s Chimera Parasite. The attacking team is tasked with destroying the nest inside Consulate, and the player-controlled infected defenders have to stop them.
