Ubisoft has officially unveiled Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege's upcoming "Outbreak" cooperative mode, as a part of the game's Six Invitational tournament in Montreal. Following several weeks of teasers, a first look at gameplay has debuted, while detailing the mode's specifics.
Outbreak is a fantasy zombies-style mode, where up to three players need to complete objectives and fight hordes of infected enemies. The mode takes full advantage of what makes Rainbow Six Siege unique, migrating its strong tactical gameplay and destructible environments from competitive modes.
Infected types come in five distinct classes, each which have their own tactics to consider in battle. Existing and upcoming Operators will also be making the switch, though players will be restricted to a pool of 13 curated choices tailored to the mode. Alongside the reveal, Ubisoft has released a trailer for the Outbreak mode, setting the scene for the event.
Although Outbreak's public release is still a couple of weeks off, Ubisoft has also released brief beginners tips for getting started. Breaking down the premise, enemy types, and gameplay driving Outbreak, the video provides a concise overview of what to expect at launch.
Outbreak is set to hit Rainbow Six Siege on March 6, before running for four weeks and concluding on April 3. Alongside the event, two new playable Operators will be released via Operation Chimera, as well as a variety of cosmetic items through Outbreak Packs.
