RAINBOW SIX SIEGE Gets All-New GRAND LARCENY Event Inspired by Gangsters of the 1920s
Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege is getting a brand-new limited time event — titled The Grand Larceny — turning the beloved team-based shooter into a full-blown Payday: The Heist–esque production, inspired by gangsters of the 1920s. The Grand Larceny started yesterday and runs through the 19th of May, 2020.
The event introduces not only custom-tailored duds for attackers (Amaru, Hibana, Gridlock, Maverick, and Fuze) and defenders (Echo, Maestro, Kaid, Wamai, and Warden), but also The Stolen Goods game mode.
According to Ubisoft, The Stolen Goods "plays out on a modified version of the old Hereford Base map, with new furnishings that reflect the criminal activity that’s afoot, and one big engineering change: many of the breakable floors no longer have metal beams reinforcing them. With every Operator packing a shotgun as their primary weapon, you and your allies will be able to blow open big holes in floors to get the drop on your enemies and take creative destruction to a whole new level."
By completing special event challenges — or by purchasing them with Renown or R6 Credits — players can earn packs with 31 unique items, ranging from "Hibana’s rakish asymmetrical chapeau, Wamai’s tactical pinstripe pants, The Grand Larceny’s headgear" to some never-before-seen uniforms and weapon skins.
Without further ado, take a closer look at the official The Grand Larceny announcement trailer down below:
The Siege is a brand-new style of gameplay embracing the reality of counter-terrorist operatives across the world: intense and asymmetrical close-quarters combat between attackers and defenders. As a defender, you will have the means to transform your environment into strongholds to prevent the attackers from breaching. As an attacker, you will have many planning options to face this challenge and defuse these situations.
Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Siege is currently available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC (via Steam, Origin, Uplay and the EGS); coming to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X at a later date.
