Rainbow Six Siege Showdown Event Brings the Wild West Into the Game
Ubisoft is offering yet another new adventure for players to enjoy with the latest Rainbow Six Siege Showdown event. Hope you like westerns, because the latest Rainbow Six Siege event is going to make you want to ride ’til you can’t no more.
Rainbow Six Siege Showdown Event
Ubisoft took to their blog where the latest post describes the new game mode as a 3 v 3 fight for gold, as one team defends and the other attacks similar to game modes already in the game. This time however the setting is the western ruins of Fort Truth and tells the tale of the dastardly Graveltop Gang and the Lawmen of the West.
In the Wildest days of the West, two factions clashed on many occasions. Faced with justice, the vile Graveltop Gang always managed to vanish into the desert. That is until they finally faced off in the husk of an old fort. That day, they say bullets rained like never before.”
Rainbow Six Siege Showdown Players
Players can choose from a small selection of characters from the main game that have some slick Western duds replacing their normal gear. The Law side let’s players choose from Erik “Maverick” Thorn, Eliza “Ash” Cohen, Emmanuelle “Twitch” Pichon, Vicente “Capitão” Souza, and Timur “Glaz” Glazkov, while the Graveltop Gang consists of Aria “Alibi” de Luca, Jalal “Kaid” El Fassi, Taina “Caveira” Pereira, Adriano “Maestro” Martello, and Julien “Rook” Nizan.
Players are limited to a BOSG.12.2 shotgun and a Magnum LFP586 revolver as they fight for control over a single zone. As each match unfolds, an announcer tells a small tale that changes depending on how many players are left standing on each team or if the zone has been captured or defended through the course of the game, giving a little extra intrigue to each battle.
Rainbow Six Siege Showdown Cosmetics
The Rainbow Six Siege Showdown game mode also comes with a variety of cosmetic items for players to unlock themed to the Western game mode. Weapons skins, Operator skins, and more await players. Thankfully, the cosmetic packs won’t feature any duplicates making it slightly easier for players to collect them all.
Rainbow Six Siege is available for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. Though it doesn’t appear as though Ubisoft will be expanding the franchise with a sequel, perhaps the game mode will spawn a spin-off title focusing on this Western setting.
