For the following two weeks, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege is swapping out hostages and bombs for safeboxes stuffed with… effectively it doesn’t really say what they’re stuffed with. I think about it’s cash, or gold, or one thing that old-timey English gangsters like, as a result of it’s all a part of the Grand Larceny occasion, impressed by 1920s British mobs.
Ubisoft have reimagined the outdated Hereford map to create a mobster hideout for a model new sport mode, The Stolen Items. In it, gamers might want to defend their fortunes towards attackers who know precisely the place to look to nab that loot.
That’s not the one twist to this new mode. Operators gained’t be going into these fights with their regular loadouts, as an alternative they’ll have nowt however a trusty shotgun to get the job finished. The builders have finished away with the preparation part, too – no drones within the 1920s I’m afraid.
Oh additionally, you know the way once you blow up the ground or ceiling, there are all the time steel beams beneath holding every part collectively? Properly, seeing as this can be a hundred year-old constructing you’ll be battling in, these steel bars aren’t there anymore. Will you be a sneaky attacker and shoot at your enemies from beneath? Or a mischievous defender and depart a couple of pitfall traps on your assailants? You determine!
Aside from that, matches are pretty customary guidelines: 5v5, defenders win by murdering attackers, attackers win by murdering defenders or finishing the target (which on this case is opening a sure quantity safeboxes).
Nearly all of the operators are unlocked for this occasion, bar a couple of like Twitch, IQ, and others that don’t fairly slot in with the sport mode. Ubisoft don’t give a cause for this, however it looks as if a whole lot of operators that use significantly hi-tech gear have been neglected.
Many of the characters which are concerned, nonetheless, are getting some pretty art-deco type cosmetics. You’ll be capable to seize these by way of Grand Larceny packs which might be earned by doing occasion challenges, or you should buy them for 300 R6 Credit (the sport’s premium foreign money) or 12,500 Renown.
The Grand Larceny occasion runs from as we speak till Might 19th, and you may take a look at the occasion web page for more information.
