Rainbow Six Siege Year Three will feature a co-op event called 'Outbreak'

A third year of content for Rainbow Six Siege has been announced by Ubisoft, set to kick off in January 2018, and arriving in four installments over the course of the year.

These are all the details we have right now on the forthcoming Outbreak mode, as well as the four Seasons coming to Rainbow Six Siege in 2018, although we'll keep an ear out for any additional information released from Ubisoft. Outbreak will add exclusive cosmetics players can only receive during the month of the event. In the new event, players will take on zombies, who are the ever-present threat in video games.

Ubisoft was one of the first big companies to really pivot towards games as a service, and it seems to be working out for them so far. Take a look in the trailer above.




Year 3's first season will kick off with Operation Chimera, which features two new operators from France and Russian Federation, and the "Outbreak-event" - Rainbow Six Siege's first co-op event ever. What is new however, is that some seasons of this upcoming year will include operators from two different countries rather than both from one nation. Full details on Outbreak and Operation Chimera will be revealed at the Six Invitational, which runs from February 16 to 18 next year. It will only be around for four weeks though, after that, it will go away. They're both biohazard specialists, one each from France and Russian Federation.

Sounds like another busy year for Rainbow Six Siege, then. "With that special event, we are taking [the new operators] and a bunch of Rainbow Six in a four-week event that has really a twist on it".

"It's a way for us to give a present, a gift, to all the players that have been with us".
