Rainbow Six Siege fans are counting down to the start of the Containment event.

The Containment event has a release date of August 3 on PlayStation, Xbox and PC.

There is no official launch time at the time of writing, but previous events have kicked off around 6:00 PM UK time.

The containment will last for three weeks in a row, meaning you can enjoy the event until August 24.

As part of the Containment event, Ubisoft has announced plans to launch a brand new game mode.

“Today, Ubisoft announced a new time-limited PvP event for Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege, Containment,” explains Ubisoft.

“The event starts tomorrow, August 3, and will run for three weeks until August 24.

“Inspired by the upcoming game Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Extraction, Containment puts players in a reworked version of the Consulate map overruled by the Chimera Parasite in a new game mode called Nest Destruction.”

Rainbow Six Siege’s Nest Destruction mode is a player-versus-player event where teams fight for a Nest.

“On the one hand, attackers are given a two-goal scenario: destroy the nest to open the final target and win the round.

“On the other hand, to be victorious, defenders will have to rely on melee attacks and Oryx’ Ramah Dash to stop their opponents.

“Of course there is always a last resort to secure victory – players can rely on the old but efficient way: completely eliminating the opponent.”

According to Ubisoft, Defenders will be provided with extra health and other special abilities, but will be without weapons for the entire game.

Attackers, on the other hand, spawn with a standard gear with no modifiers and only have access to a limited selection of Operators.

Needless to say, the Containment event will launch alongside 33 unique items for Rainbow Six Siege operators. This includes IQ, Ace, Blackbeard, Amaru, and Zero on the offensive side, as well as Aruni, Jager, Kaid, Mira, and Warden on the defensive team.

“The collection includes headgear, uniforms and weapon skins. Each Operator’s exclusive, limited-time customization items can be purchased as bundles in the shop section for 1680 R6 Credits or through the Containment Packs for 300 R6 Credits or 12500 Renown.”

As an added bonus, the game is free to play from August 13 to August 15. Existing players will earn twice as many Battle Pass Points during the trial period.

The event is launching just a few days after the Y6S2.2 update, which has brought major changes across the board. According to the patch notes, numerous operators received balance updates, while dozens of bug fixes were implemented across the board.
