Trailer: Rainbow Six: Siege gets mystical today with the Rengoku Event

Throwing knives, samurai armor, and an ancient Japanese setting? What the heck is happening in Rainbow Six: Siege? Rengoku, that’s what.

What is a Rengoku anyway?

Set in Japan, Rengoku unveils a temple in the sky and a fight for eternity, where Operators are Samurai warriors possessed by spirits fighting for the honor of the gods in a revisited Skyscraper map. In the 5v5 control mode, players must stay near altars for five seconds unopposed to score control points or steal control points from the opposing team – the first team to reach 300 points wins the match. Every two minutes, the control points will change location.

Operators will wield a one-hit kill explosive Kiba on top of shotguns and pistols. Fuze, Osa, Rook, and Thunderbird can choose between a Fire or Poison Kiba, while Twitch, Capitão, Zofia, Kapkan, Bandit, and Maestro can choose between the Flashback or Knockback Kiba to unleash the ultimate chaos.

Ubisoft press release

This limited time event includes all of the above, plus special “uniforms, headgear, weapon skins and Operator Card Portraits”. Want more? Also included is the “Battlefield Spirit Bundle”. That’s packed with “a signature weapon skin, a universal attachment skin, charm and background”.

The special packs can be claimed by completing the Event Challenges, though you can also buy ’em with 300 R6 Credits, or 12500 Renown. And on top of that, there are also bundles hitting that you can pick up for 1680 R6 Credits.

Rengoku should be live right now for all versions of Rainbow Six: Siege.
