Rainbow Six Siege will get an August 2021 event that’s a tie-in with the upcoming Rainbow Six Extraction, Ubisoft has today confirmed.

Running over 4-25 August, the Containment event is “inspired by the upcoming game Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Extraction,” and will feature a reworked Consulate map, Nest Destruction playlist and more.

Nest Destruction will provide a look at Extraction‘s REACT, the faction that’s heavily featured within the upcoming game. Players will be either playing as REACT agents or as alien shapeshifters who are taking the form of REACT agents (tricky, tricky!). The shapeshifters — Defenders — will only be able to use melee attacks.

The Containment event will offer up 33 unique items including weapon skins and uniforms.

Rainbow Six Siege is currently available on Windows PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X, PS4, PS5, Stadia and Luna.

Rainbow Six Extraction was recently delayed and is now planned for a 2022 release on Windows PC, Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X, PS4 and PS5. We recently had hands-on with it here.
