Ghost Recon Breakpoint Rainbow Six Siege crossover starts next week

Get ready for Operation Amber Sky.

A special Ghost Recon Breakpoint Rainbow Six Siege crossover event will take place in Breakpoint from 21 January, Ubisoft has announced.

The event is called Operation Amber Sky, and “will let players fight alongside Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege teammates in brand-new story missions,” Ubisoft declared.

The live event will be available alongside Breakpoint‘s Title Update 3.10, which itself will be available from 19 January. The Title Update includes the following:

  • 9 Free Missions: The Ghosts are told that Sentinel is producing a toxic gas, Amber Ruin, in Auroa and selling it all over the world. Joining forces with an infiltrated Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege team, players will have to stop the production and find an antidote. For this, they will have to complete a wide array of objectives and venture into the deadly gas areas, where they will need to wear a gas mask and renew their filters regularly to survive. Upon completing the event missions, players will unlock eleven unique rewards, including brand-new weapons and Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege full skins.
  • New Teammates: After completing the first mission of the live event, players will be able to deploy Operators Ash, Finka and Thatcher anywhere in the game and at any time from the menu, as an alternative to regular teammates. Their looks, weapons and unique capabilities are modeled from Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege.
  • More than 120 New Customization Items: Items include full skins from Operators and more.

Moreover, Ghost Recon Breakpoint will offer a free-to-play weekend between 21-24 January on all platforms. All in-game events will be offered up, with players given six total hours of playtime.

Ghost Recon Breakpoint is available now on Windows PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series S & X, PS4, PS5 and Stadia where available.
