What is the Rainbow Six Siege Apocalypse Event?
Players will be fighting in the Outback map, however, it is re-skinned and modified to make you feel like you are in a post-apocalyptic wasteland. Rainbow Six Siege is the 13th installment of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six that was released on December 1st, 2020, and is inspired by terrorist/counter-terrorist events that happen across the world. The game can be played on Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Microsoft Windows, PS4, or PS5.
A new game mode has launched today on May 4th, 2021 called Cannister which makes the Defenders, known as keepers, defend the final plant of life on earth from the attackers, known as Warband. As a defender, you are able to move the canister throughout the map as you defend until the time runs out. The Warband has one goal, to defuse the canister and doom planet Earth for good. If you are bored of playing Call of Duty: Warzone and want a change of pace, this event may be for you.
