Rainbow Six Extraction Tie-In Event Comes To Siege

Rainbow Six Siege fans looking forward to Extraction can get a taste of what’s to come with the Containment Event.

Launching from today (August 3rd) Siege players will face off against the alien Proteans in a limited time PvP mode. Containment will introduce players to Nest Destruction, a mode where a team of operators must destroy nests (obviously), and a team of the Proteans must defend them.

The alien team will gain boosted health, Aruni’s punch, and Oryx’s special abilities, but will remain weaponless for the whole game. Operators, on the other hand, will have access to a standard loadout, but modifiers are disabled and Operator selection reduced.

Containment will take over Siege map Consulate with some unearthly growths. With the increased strength of the Proteans, Operators will need everything they can get their hands-on, and I have a feeling the building will need a touch up after each match.

The event gives players a taste of Rainbow Six Extraction which was recently delayed into 2022. Players will be able to face off against aliens for the next few weeks, until the event ends on August 24th.

For those who don’t own Rainbow Six Siege, the game will be free to all players between August 13th and 15th, so you can try out the event. Across that weekend players will also be able to earn twice as many Battle Pass Points.

The event won’t just bring aliens, however. There will be 33 unique items available for Operators such as IQ, Blackbeard, Amaru, Zero, Ace and more. These items will include headgear, weapon skins and uniforms. You will be able to get a hold of these time-limited cosmetics through the shop.

Rainbow Six Siege Containment Event is available to play now across PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PC, Stadia and Luna.
