Chris Watters Associate Communications Manager at Ubisoft has taken to the official PlayStation blog this week to reveal more details about the new Western-themed Showdown Event for Rainbow Six Siege. The new event is running from today until July 16th, 2019 and offers players a new mode, new map, and new cosmetic rewards. Cowboy hats, sheriff’s badges, and more Western themed gear will be available for some of your favourite Operators. Check out the announcement trailer below to learn more about what you can expect from this new event.
“Showdown will take place exclusively on the limited-time map, Fort Truth, a dusty, sun-baked ruin with crumbling walls that have seen more than a few gun battles. The rules are simple: each round is a 3v3 face-off to secure the area, and the gold. The available Operators are decked out in new Showdown-specific headgear and uniforms, and split into two posses: The Law (Attackers: Ash, Capitão, Glaz, Maverick, and Twitch) and the Graveltop Gang (Defenders: Alibi, Caveira, Kaid, Maestro, Rook).
No matter who you choose, however, you’ll all wield the same weapons: The BOSG.12.2 shotgun and the Magnum LFP586 revolver. With no preparation phase, no reinforcements, and limited HUD, each 90-second round is gonna be a fast-paced shootout where you’ll prevail by the sharpness of your aim and the strength of your grit.”
