Ubisoft kicked off April with a new seasonal event for Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege, wrapping its gritty tactical shooter with a cutesy April Fools twist. Following the release of the latest Australian update, Operation Burnt Horizon, the Rainbow is Magic event packs an impressive roster of changes themed around toys and games.
First deployed onto Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC versions of the game on April 1, the event brought a limited time "Save the Teddy" mode, alongside a reworked pink variant of Plane, and collection of exclusive cosmetic packs. While formerly slated to conclude on April 8, Ubisoft has now confirmed a one-week extension into April 15, 2019.
