Year 6 Season 1 Apocalypse will start today and will run for two weeks until May 18. This will introduce a post-apocalyptic version of Outback where players will have to fight for their clan, hope, and freedom to revitalize life.

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.

The new game mode, Canister, will have 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. Last but not least option to secure the win is to get rid of the opposing team entirely. Who will hold the key to humanity’s new future?

This new event will have its own Collection of 35 items featuring Fuze, Gridlock, Maverick, Nomad, Twitch, and more. Players can gain access to personalized weapon skins, headgears, and uniforms. There are items that are exclusive and time-limited customizations for each operator and can be purchased as Bundles in the Shop section for only 1680 R6 credits or via the Apocalypse Packs for 300 R6 Credits or 12,500 Renown.

Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege: Apocalypse is now available on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
