Ubisoft announces the Doktor’s Curse event is now live in Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Siege Year 4, celebrating Halloween with a little hide-and-seek. This includes the chance to unlock 28 new items for the tactical shooter, and these items can also be purchased with R6 Credits or Renown. This page has all the details along with this trailer showing off what to expect. Here’s the lowdown:

Today, Ubisoft announced the frightful, limited-time event for Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Siege Year 4, Doktor’s Curse. This event brings an all-new game mode in a spooky, reworked, Frankenstein version of the map “Theme Park,” taken over by Doc, where he performs his disturbing, evil experiments.

This year’s Halloween event will last two weeks, beginning today, October 23rd and ending on Wednesday, November 6th. In this exciting 5-vs.-5 Monster Hunt mode, players will have to choose between fighting or embracing the darkness. Exterminators: 5 Sledges wielding only 3 unique hammers as weapons and a selection of gadgets — Eyenox Model III (Jackal), Heartbeat sensor (Pulse) and the EE-ONE-D (Lion) — will face five Monsters: a cast composed of Lesion, Frost, Kapkan, Smoke, and Ela. The Monsters have no weapons but can use traps and have a unique ability created for this mode: they can turn momentarily invisible and run faster to escape. The Monster Hunters’ (Attackers) goal is to kill all monsters, while the Monsters (Defenders) try to survive the round.

The Doktor’s Curse Collection will introduce brand new skins for five operators. Smoke, Kapkan, Frost, Lesion, and Ela each get their own set of four items, as well as Doc and Bandit, for a total of 28 items. Additionally, classic 2018 Halloween skins are once again available for a limited time.

The “Doktor’s Curse” Event includes the new Ubisoft Club Challenge that allows players to earn one of the 28 packs if they achieve 20 kills while playing the Doktor’s Curse map, and a second pack if they manage to win 13 rounds in the Doktor’s Curse playlist.

Players can also purchase the Doktor’s Curse pack for 300 R6 Credits or 12 500 Renown, with a 10% discount for Y4 Pass owners.

rainbowsix-siege-logoDiscover the new operators Warden and Nøkk and the reworked Kafe Dostoyevsky map in Year 4 Season 2 ​​​​​​​

Ubisoft has announced that Operation Phantom Sight, the second season of Year 4 of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Siege, is now available for PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One and Windows PC. Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Siege will also be available on Uplay+, Ubisoft’s subscription service for Windows PC. More details on Uplay+ can be found at Uplay.com. Operation Phantom Sight brings two new Operators, Nøkk from the Danish Special Forces and Warden, a veteran of the US Secret Service. The Kafe Dostoyevsky map has also been completely reworked, upgrading the layout and the aesthetics of the map.

Owners of the Year 4 Pass can play with the new Operators starting tomorrow while the rest of the players will be able to unlock these Operators starting June 18th using Renown or R6 Credits. Additional seasonal new content, including the Kafe Dostoyevsky map rework, will be available tomorrow for free to all players.

In Operation Phantom Sight, players will meet two new Operators:

  • Nøkk is the new Attacker that can activate the HEL Presence Reduction gadget. Drones, Bulletproof Cameras, Evil Eyes and other observation tools will thus be unable to register Nøkk’s presence as she roams through the map, unseen. Her footsteps will be silenced as she stalks opposing Operators, unheard.
  • Warden, the new Defender, uses the Glance Smart Glasses gadget that can prevent him from being blinded by flash effects, cleanse an existing flash blindness and gain visibility through smoke. As long as he remains stationary, he can quickly turn a disadvantageous situation to his favor by activating his glasses, catching the approaching Attackers off guard.

Additionally, this new Operation includes a complete rework of Kafe lead to the gameplay experience being completely revamped. For instance, most of the first floor has been redesigned, with the most drastic change around the North entrance, and a new bombsite has been added on the second floor. Kafe Dostoyevsky has also received an aesthetic revamp that gives the map an even more sleek and chic atmosphere.

Operation Phantom Sight also brings many improvements and updates. Reverse Friendly Fire has been upgraded and now takes into consideration the actions of an entire squad. It is now possible to activate the Reverse Friendly Fire feature for an entire squad if they are consistently hurting their teammates. Additional new changes include a complete redesign of the shop front for a smoother and more enjoyable experience and improvements to Ranked Mode to make it more competitive and closer to the Pro League format: Pick & Ban, 3-round rotations and the Bomb game mode will now be the standard for all Ranked matches.

Finally, new skins have also been added: The Lesion prototype Elite skin is perfect to dish out some real venomous attacks with its cutting-edge technology alongside the abyssal Destroyer, dutiful Secret Star and vicious Strike Force weapon skins.

At yesterday’s Six Invitational 2019 tournament, Ubisoft unveiled details about Year 4 Season 1 for Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Siege. The first look at Operation Burnt Horizon the other day with the release of a new Gridlock & Mozzie trailer, and they follow this with a new CGI trailer called “The Hammer and the Scalpel.” There’s a post on the Ubisoft website with more on the plan another trailer showing off gameplay. For those who cannot wait for this new content to officially launch, a test server is going up today with a chance to help vet this before it’s ready to go live. Here are the details:

Today, at the Six Invitational 2019, Ubisoft announced the full details of Season 1 of Year 4 of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Siege. Operation Burnt Horizon introduces an all-new Attacker and Defender from the Australian SASR Mobility Platoon, Gridlock and Mozzie. These two new operators come with a new map, Outback, a homage to all the lonely service stations and motels along the forgotten highways across Australia’s beautiful sun-soaked land. Year 4 Season 1 also brings a new Elite Set for Operator Hibana, including an Onkochishin uniform and a new victory animation and weapon skin.

Operation Burnt Horizon brings two new Operators, the Attacker Gridlock and the Defender Mozzie, both friends for years in the Australian Special Air Service Regiment (SASR) Platoon. Gridlock uses Trax Stingers, a portable version of road spikes that when activated, deploys a hexagonal cluster of spikes. When Defenders step on them, the Trax Stingers deal damage and slow them, making this gadget a good map control tool. In the meantime, Mozzie can deploy a Pest Launcher. When launched, the Pest latches onto the nearest enemy drone and obscures its camera. The Pest then initiates an override sequence to hack the drone and grant full control to Mozzie.

Alongside these two new Operators, Burnt Horizon introduces the map Outback, a lonely service station forgotten on one of Australia’s iconic motorways. Outback is divided into three distinct sections – the Garage, the Motel, and the Restaurant – all of which are unique and distinctly recognizable, even from a distance. Outback is a medium-sized map, so players won’t need to go far to find alternative routes. Packed with twists, turns, and Australiana, Outback is filled with unexpected corners and souvenirs from the Great Southern Land.

The Test Server for Operation Burnt Horizon will go live on February 18th. The Test Server is an alternative version of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Siege, allowing players to test upcoming gameplay features that will make their way into the main game itself. Since this is a testing environment, a consistent gameplay experience is not guaranteed on the Test Server. Players are invited to submit the issues they encounter on the Test Server on the R6 Fix platform. The Test Server is exclusive to Windows PC.
