Rainbow Six Siege is celebrating the holidays as well as its fifth anniversary. The event is now live and features a special Legacy Arcade event, new signature items and gifts.
With 2020 on its way out, 'tis the season to get into the cosy holiday spirit. Rainbow Six Siege is hosting its own holiday bash complete with a special Legacy Arcade event, new signature items and gifts for the community.
Rainbow Six Siege has now been live for five years and with any anniversary comes a celebration plus a look into what the game has managed to accomplish. This year is a milestone to mark with style and what better than to take a step back to where it all began?
The Legacy Arcade
Starting on December 17, 2020, and going all the way until January 5, 2021.
This time around, the Arcade will let the players step into the boots of one of the 20 operators from the main roster. Whether you pick Sledge, Ash, Thatcher, IQ or Twitch, your choice will reflect the landscape of the game's inaugural year.
The chosen Operators' abilities won't be any different than what you're used to, but all secondary gadgets at your disposal will be fitting the original loadout of the game. That means no claymore, no impact or anything that was released later in the game.
That also means that Ash, Bandit and Jager’s weapons will get back the scopes 2.5x(ACOG) they had upon release. The only exception will be the deployable shields, which will remain the same as in the latest version of the game.
This Arcade’s game mode will be Plant Bomb in Casual Rules. You will be rotating between Attack and Defense at the end of every round.
You will also be able to play on Hereford Base, House and Plane in their original layout.
A winter miracle
Get ready for the new holiday Signature bundle. This jolly assortment called Old School Yule keeps the retro spirit going with the Vintage Festivity weapon skin and Joyful Madness charm.
Rainbow Six Siege and its evolution can't be celebrated without praising its passionate community. The players will be getting one operator as a holiday gift. Those who already own every operator will receive an exclusive free Elf Ash skin featuring a uniform and headgear.
The Elf Ash skin will not be sold or available anywhere else. You can also visit the Holiday store page for special discounts on various items.
No celebration is complete without some tunes. Ubisoft and Laced Records’ special double soundtrack vinyl, a collaboration created in celebration of Siege’s fifth anniversary features 29 tracks specifically mastered for the vinyl and original sleeve artwork created by our community artists.
