Rainbow 6 Siege Containment release date revealed with a new trailer while introducing a free-to-claim outfit for Nomad.

Even before Rainbow Six Extraction becomes a reality, Rainbow Six Siege received a limited-time mode called Outbreak, which many believe is the source of inspiration for R6 Extraction.

Now, Ubisoft brings back the limited-time event with more changes towards the upcoming Extraction experience, renaming it as Containment.

What is the Rainbow 6 Siege Containment Mode?

Set in a virus-infected version of the Consulate map, a team of REACT (Attackers) will play against a team of Proteans (Defenders). Proteans are deadly variants of Archæan that can adopt the for of REACT operators and mimic their behavior.

That being said, they can not shoot at Attackers, which means the only way for them to hurt REACT operators is through melee attacks.

All defenders will passively have Aruni’s punch, Oryx’s Dash, and additional health. On the other hand, the Attackers will have the same Siege operators as before with nothing new.

What Are the Rules?

Containment matches will be played in a new mode called Nest Destruction. In this mode, the rules of winning for Attackers or Defenders are different.

Attackers will have a two-tiered mission: First, they need to destroy the Nest, which will get the next objective unlocked for them.

On the other hand, defenders will need to stop the Attackers from finishing their objectives.

If any team manages to kill all the opponent members, will win the match.

Rainbow 6 Siege Containment Event Release Date

The Containment event starts on August 3 and ends on August 24. During this time, you will have the chance to open special, event-themed Alpha Packs and get Extraction-themed cosmetics.

How to Get the Nomad Hive Mind Set for Free

From August 17 until August 24, any player that manages to win 10 matches in the Containment event, will receive the Nomad Hive Mind Set for free.

Rainbow Six Siege is now available on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and PC.
