A limited-time event for Rainbow Six Siege is underway.
Rainbow Six Siege players can participate in the limited time event Doktor’s Curse from today. Happy Halloween.
It brings with it a new game mode in the reworked Theme Park map, which now features a Frankenstein vibe.
The mode is a 5v5 Monster Hunt where players choose between “fighting or embracing the darkness.” Mwahahaha.
Here’s more on the mode:
Exterminators: 5 Sledges wielding only 3 unique hammers as weapons and a selection of gadgets — Eyenox Model III (Jackal), Heartbeat sensor (Pulse) and the EE-ONE-D (Lion) — will face five Monsters: a cast composed of Lesion, Frost, Kapkan, Smoke, and Ela. The Monsters have no weapons but can use traps and have a unique ability created for this mode: they can turn momentarily invisible and run faster to escape. The Monster Hunters’ (Attackers) goal is to kill all monsters, while the Monsters (Defenders) try to survive the round.
The event also comes with the Doktor’s Curse Collection which features new skins for five operators: Smoke, Kapkan, Frost, Lesion, and Ela. Each get their own set of four items, as well as Doc and Bandit, for a total of 28 items. You can also pick up last year’s Halloween skins for a limited time.
Also included is a new Ubisoft Club Challenge that allows you to earn one of the 28 packs if you achieve 20 kills while playing the Doktor’s Curse map.
A second pack can also be earned if you win 13 rounds in the Doktor’s Curse playlist. In addition, all who log in between now and the event’s end will be handed one free pack. You can also purchase the Doktor’s Curse pack for 300 R6 Credits or 12 500 Renown, with a 10% discount for Year 4 Pass owners.
This year’s Halloween event will last two weeks and will end on November 6.
