Ubisoft will shake issues up with its new Rainbow Six Siege Halloween occasion, Sugar Fright, which runs Oct. 27 by means of Nov. 10.
In Sugar Fright, gamers will enter into a colourful new map and choose one among 10 Operators-turned-puppets. The groups battle in opposition to one another to see who can acquire 50 sweet from the our bodies of their fallen enemies — much like Kill Confirmed modes in Name of Obligation. However for the primary time in Rainbow Six Siege historical past, gamers can respawn after they die.
The mode nonetheless makes use of attackers and defenders, with IQ, Zofia, Nomad, Capitao, and Thermite on the attacking aspect, and Frost, Pulse, Ela, Citadel, and Goyo on the defending crew. However even the Operators are a bit completely different. They might have the identical talents, however they appear like puppets straight from Sesame Street — though with Rainbow Six Siege’s M score, maybe Avenue Q is extra apt.
These skins will auto-activate throughout the Sugar Fright occasion, however gamers can unlock them completely by means of particular Sugar Fright Packs or Operator Bundles. Gamers can purchase Sugar Fright Packs with in-game or real-money foreign money, or earn them through challenges throughout Sugar Fright.
This can be a huge shift in tone for the in any other case straight navy shooter. And it’s good to see Ubisoft taking a sillier strategy with one among its extra severe franchises.
