Today, Ubisoft have dropped a brand new limited-time event for Rainbow Six Siege Year 6 Season 1 named Apocalypse. The event will run for two weeks until May 18, 2021.

Apocalypse is kicking off today and will be running for two weeks until May 18, 2021. This limited-time event introduces a post-apocalyptic version of Outback, where players will have to fight for their clan, hope and freedom to revitalise life, according to the official description.

"In the world of Apocalypse, humanity’s dependence on nuclear energy ultimately led to the fall of civilisation and the emergence of two clans, The Keepers and The Warband. These warriors and scavengers seek the last plant on Earth, which holds the power to re-grow life on Earth."

There's also a new game mode named Canister where players fight as The Keepers (Defenders) or The Warband (Attackers) for the last remaining plant on Earth.

Defenders can move the canister containing the plant around the map, while the Attackers can activate specific scanner rooms to detect defenders as they roam through the rooms. The main objective of the Attacking side is to defuse the canister transporting the plant. 

On the Defending side, Operators must protect the canister until time runs out to win. And of course, you can always take the W by eliminating the opposing team.

Furthermore, the Apocalypse event comes with its own Collection of 35 items featuring Fuze, Gridlock, Maverick, Nomad, Twitch, Maestro, Melusi, Rook, Smoke and Valkyrie.

Players will have access to personalised headgears, weapon skins and uniforms. Each Operator’s exclusive, time-limited customisation items are available for purchase as Bundles in the Shop.
