Rainbow Six Siege Outbreak Event Live Now

The Year 3 of Ubisoft's tactical shooter Rainbow Six Siege, Operation Chimera is about to spice things up like never before starting today, because the brand-new cooperative time event called Outbreak is going live now and it brings all the excitement and surprise on the table for the Rainbow team. Plus, the game adds two new French and Russian counter-terrorism Operators to the fold.

Starting from March 6, this four week-long Outbreak Event is going to put the skills of the best operators suited for this job on test. Till now, Outbreak mode was only available on the test servers of Rainbow Six Siege from last month and now that it has gone live, we will meet the elite Rainbow team at Truth or Consequences, New Mexico as it is taken over by a new breed of hostiles that the operators have never encountered before.

Outbreak is the co-op event to play out with an extent of three players and you have to carefully choose your team from a selected group of Operators as weapons and gadgets unique to them can either give you an advantage on the battlefield over your new enemy types or it can set you off balance. It would be for better if you can assemble a balanced team of three with adjustments of defensive and offensive capabilities in them.

Considering the new situation Operation Chimera presents, Operator who can revive teammates who are down but not yet out would be a huge perk. On that regard, Doc or new Operator Finka would be a good choice. The added benefit of picking up Finka is her team-buffing ability called Adrenal Surge. In general cases, shotguns are used to blast through walls but you will find some good use of it against the gruesome foes of Outbreak mode and Tachanka’s Mounted LMG will come in handy for that.

Outbreak brings five unique types of enemies to the table and not any one of them should be taken lightly. The most frequently encountered enemies throughout Outbreak Event have to be the Grunt. The one with spikes and yellow bubbles are the Breacher who loves to breach through your barricades and then explode. Then there are faster enemies called Apex, the ones who would try to trap you are Rooters and hulking sized Smasher.

Outbreak is not for shooting down hostile infected swarm but to uncover the mystery of the carnage that beset on the city of Truth or Consequences. The event will be live from March 6 to April 3 on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One as you test your skills out in a whole new situation. Since this is no longer a fight against terrorism, the same sort of tactics is better left off and you better form some new ones. Whatever you do, take down your enemies as quickly as possible and build a better defense.

Rainbow Six Siege New Operators Lion and Finka

Developer Ubisoft previously announced that the Year 3 of Rainbow Six Siege is going to kick off with Operation Chimera and a lot of new content. Currently, the Rainbow Six Invitational tournament is going on in Montreal, Canada and they revealed the two new operators recruited to Team Rainbow for the event. They are the first released content for Year 3 and is here to help the team fight some unusual situation.

Check out the trailer below from Ubisoft introducing two new Operators Lion and Finka for Operation Chimera.




Ubisoft has a history of adding an attacker and a defender, whenever they release new operators for Rainbow Six Siege but this time they made an exception by giving attacking attributes to Lion & Finka. Besides, previously the developers introduced fresh operators based on real-life Special Forces units of different countries. For Operation Chimera however, they are members of a fictional elite squad named CBRN and are especially trained in biological warfare.

The following trailer clip details the key-features of biohazard specialist Operators Lion and Finka, joining Team Rainbow.




Since Rainbow Six Siege is going to see some odd circumstances this year, Lion and Finka are brought in considering their immense expertise on biohazard. Both of them get to choose from three of their primary weapons and they are Operators with 2-speed and 2-armor. The competitive multiplayer experience will never be the same with these two hanging out with the Rainbow Six team.

Our first Operator Finka hails straight from Russia and one of the best biohazard specialists out there. Using her Adrenal Surge ability by triggering nanites in their bloodstream, she can give a boost to every member of her team that will reduce recoil and give bonus HP. You can even revive one of the fellow attacker as long as they are just down but not out yet. The boost also lets you pass through pass barbed wire faster and will provide quick recoveries from concussion and flashbang effects. Adrenal Surge are up for use twice in each round.

Operator Lion is French and another newest recruit to the team for Operation Chimera, where the team will need his expertise. He scans the entire map with an aerial drone called EE-One-D for potential enemies and pin-points their location with it. If any member of the attacking team even takes a step, the drone identifies their movement in real-time, making it easy for Lion to take them out. Once he activates it as you can see a live countdown on the screen and should not take a step but you can rotate if you want. In each round, Lion can use up his drone for three times with a cool down period of course.

As we discussed about them, Operators Lion and Finka will be available from March 6 alongside the launch of Operation Chimera event. Considering their unique abilities, these two new operatives will bring a new edge to the team for the oncoming challenges of Rainbow Six Siege Year 3.

Rainbow Six Siege: Outbreak Details

Ubisoft's tactical shooter Rainbow Six Siege has been based known for its parallel run with reality so far but that thing is changing very soon. With the release of upcoming Outbreak event, the series will step into the sci-fi genre and probably even meet aliens. Yes, visitors from outer-space are about to step foot and the elite Rainbow team will have an encounter with the strange visitors on unfriendly turfs.

Rainbow Six Siege: Outbreak and Space Capsule

You can stop looking suspicious at us and take a quick look at this newly released short-clip from developer/publisher Ubisoft titled "Space Capsule" to find out if we are kidding or not.




Now that we have successfully established that neither Ubisoft, nor us were not playing cuckoo about the alien matter, let's get onto more details about it. Outbreak is a forthcoming co-op event from the third year of content of Rainbow Six Siege. During Operation Chimera, the event was teased and two brand-new operators, one of whom is specially trained for biological and chemical attacks. All we lacked was information on what sort of quarantined area they will be going into.

RELATED: Rainbow Six Siege Year 3 DLC Announced

Initially, these clues and the biohazard sign on the promotional teaser image suggested that the counter-terrorism operatives of Rainbow Six team will be tasked to take down a zombie epidemic but with the new "Space Capsule" trailer, that changes. So, instead of an undead threat, they will be dealing with extraterrestrial menaces. Apparently, the trouble is originated with a recovered Russian spacecraft in a small town of New Mexico.

An alien parasite that came out of an old Soviet space capsule called the Apex starts transforming the locals into hostile beings. As the extraterrestrial threat starts terrorizing the populace, Smoke, Ying, Buck, Kapkan, Ash, Doc, Tachanka and Glaz will be joined by French Operator Lion and a Russian Operator Finka on a mission to the town of Truth or Consequences. This means, these are the only playable Operators for the Outbreak event and a team of three Operators will be sent in.

Ubisoft has seemingly avoided the word "zombies" in their promotions for and instead are calling them people turning into "horrific creatures" by aliens. There will be five unique types of them with their distinctive abilities for the hot zone specialists Rainbow Six team to take down. Most recently, the developers have also played with the idea of introducing alien threats to another of their real-life like tactical shooter Ghost Recon Wildlands by dropping popular sci-fi character The Predator from the 1987 movie of the same name.

Outbreak offers you Normal and Pandemic difficulty levels, both having different game-playing style. In Pandemic mode, not only you will come across tough enemies but you can catch on some friendly fires too. That makes your communication a vital point of the game and you need positional awareness at all times. Since your target won't bother getting shot a few times before taking a dig at you, start using the blockades and reinforcements from your surrounding environment smartly.

There are three large exclusive maps to explore that are designed for the purpose for co-op gameplay. With dangers lurking in every corner, the trademark "environmental destruction" of the game is still there for you to blow up and create holes in the wall too. Plus, don't forget about the weapons and uniform cosmetic packs for this timed-event.

The month-long Outbreak event along with Rainbow Six Siege Year 3 will begin on March 6 and will draw conclusion of the co-op on April 3. The content will be available on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One right from the beginning. So, it's at least four weeks of stay in the Quarantine Zone fighting those mutated horrors. While playing Operation Chimera on Rainbow Six Siege technical test servers, players can try out Outbreak from February 20 before it completely releases though.

Rainbow Six Siege Year 3 DLC Announced

The developer team behind tactical shooter video game Rainbow Six Siege; Ubisoft wants to start off Year Three a little differently. So, they have just announced more content and additional support for the third year of the game's release. What we've been able to gather is that we are getting two new maps and one of the existing gets a makeover as well as eight new Operators. Moreover, the first-ever co-op event of the game will be launched. Are you feeling excited yet? We know, you are.

"Operation Chimera" will be the highlight of Year Three, where two new operators will be introduced from France and Russia. There will also be a four weeks limited-time co-op event named Outbreak during Season 1 of Year Three, which will be accessible for those who own Rainbow Six Siege. This event is basically all about quarantine and biohazard. This event will also allow players the chance to win exclusive cosmetics collection.

In the four season duration, each time two new Operators will be brought in. Having special roles in Outbreak co-op, these two operators are very well equipped to handle biohazard situations and are also available for multiplayer. Now this actually seems like a zombie apocalypse setting, where you go out there to put a bullet at the targets to stop them from coming at you.

Not only the game is getting two brand-new maps of Year Three, Season 1 but one of the old one is totally being re-done with new artwork and level design. Following the first Season, the game will be taking a bit more usual approach in Season Two. Two of the new Operators joining the fight will be from Italy and so will be one of the maps. Season Three will mix things up by picking one from Delta Force and another one from Scotland Yard before Season Four recruits two from Morocco.

Rainbow Six Siege came out in December, 2015 and is available to play on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One for all. Promising a twist in the event, brand manager Alex Remy nodded that they surely are up to something with Year Three and the Outbreak event. Who knows if they are thinking of starting something like Call of Duty: Nazi Zombies or not.

Rainbow Six Siege's Blood Orchid is Bugged

So far, Ubisoft tried their best to make Rainbow Six Siege update Blood Orchid as satisfying as possible but looks like the reality took a very different turn. Rainbow Six Siege new operators and other game aspects were introduced as well as SDU operators Ying and Lesion. Despite taking time and giving the much needed update, Ubisoft still failed to live up to the expectation. You might wanna ask why is that? Well, it's because of bugs.

Apparently, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege is bringing in reports of many issues and there is a Megathread on Reddit about it, which you are welcome to check out.

Rainbow Six Siege's Blood Orchid is Bugged

Rainbow Six Siege DLC Blood Orchid starts giving reports of the game either freezing or crashing and unfortunately, that is not the end of it. Players have also complained about not being able to purchase item like rifle and facing issues like rubber banding issues while they try to jump over shields. Rainbow Six Siege PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions have different types of errors but sometimes that concern is same on all platforms.

On PC, your update may not show up on uPlay but you will still be able to play the game anyway. Sometime, the update downloads several times and in case of Steam, it may not reach the content server, leading to fail to update. Stay with your teammate option may not often work and while you keep pressing Alt+Tab to choose which operator to play, this might cause the game to freeze. Also, you might not be allowed to create a local custom game.

On PlayStation 4, players are being unable to hear each other out even though they had their microphones on. Your shop will say that you already own all the elite sets, whereas you don't. Every time you switch an operator, your setting will be set to default, which is frustrating at times. Mostly, PS4 version suffers the audio problem in many spheres and lastly, even if you have enough space, it says that you are unable to download the update for space storage.

Rainbow Six Siege Need Bugfixes

In Xbox One, there is no custom game playlist at all. It is simply gone. You cannot find Elite skins in the shop. It is quite disturbing when you see members of the same team are often split up into different matches. When you are on a new operator, you may not be able to equip the universal skins. Oh, and the map thumbnail and name are now taken over by a black screen.

Above mentioned are only a few of the trouble that has been irritating the gamers worldwide. There are too many to write down without making it any longer that it already is. Ubisoft still haven't officially responded to these but since they frequently do scheduled maintenance every now and then, hopefully they will take this to notice. Otherwise, you and your Rainbow team will be on your own.

Rainbow Six Siege Trailer Feat. Idris Elba

With all the rumor going out these days regarding the anticipation of Idris Elba (Beasts of No Nation, Luther) becoming the next James Bond actor, we thought we would bring something new to the table. Yes, we are talking about this handsome British actor again but not about the James Bond speculations about him. Idris Elba stars in a brand-new minute long live-action TV spot trailer for Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege from Ubisoft.

tom clancy’s rainbow six siege trailer idris elba
Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege Feat. Idris Elba

Witness as Elba narrates what are the stakes you have to go though to achieve greatness and how to survive the siege.




The trailer perfectly matches the mood of Tom Clancy's first-person shooter franchise and Elba in his natural calm and devil may care state, goes through phases of the action. All the guns blazing, explosions going on everywhere and in the middle of the rampage of the special ops combat mission, he walks forward pointing out the obvious, that sometimes improvisation is the best strategy for survival.

The Los Angeles agency Omelet, are responsible for this piece of cinematic brilliance and reveals that they had a different idea at the beginning which was a bit comical by the way. Then when the creative team started playing, they quickly realized that to match the tonal voice of the intensity of the game, they need to amp up the seriousness of the action. This is why; they decided to go with an actor of Elba's caliber.

Instead of making the trailer with high-octane battle sequences from the in-game footage, the guys at Omelet decided to make it a live-action trailer. This really heightened the sense of realism and the seriousness of Rainbow Six Siege. In an old warehouse in Prague, the production team set-up the stage for the grand play to take place and completed the work within several days.

The series returns after a long break with Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege and it will be released worldwide on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One from December 1, 2015.
