Set in the subconscious of Frost, this year’s Halloween event for Rainbow Six Siege is especially weird with the introduction of puppets.
Rainbow Six Siege is no stranger to doing some out of the ordinary events timed around the holidays, as is tradition for a lot of Ubisoft’s other titles like For Honor and more. With Halloween right around the corner, things in Rainbow Six are going to get a little more spooky, and, well…felt-y.
Ubisoft has released a new trailer for this year’s Halloween event in Rainbow Six Siege, and compared to years past, it’s unlikely to be what you were expecting, at least if you weren’t expecting puppet heads and murder. For Halloween this year, Rainbow Six Siege‘s event is called “Sugar Fright” and takes place within the mind of Operator Frost as she envisions a world of candy, treats, and murderous puppets, with the event transforming players into Muppet-like figures as they race to collect candy.
You can check out the full trailer for the Halloween event below:
Alongside the cosmetic change for players, the Sugar Fright event will feature a new mode called “Candy War” where players compete to collect pieces of candy from fallen players’ bodies. The mode itself takes place on a brand new map and, for the first time, allows players to respawn to get right back into the trick-or-treating action.
The Sugar Fright mode in Siege will be available starting tomorrow, October 27, and runs for two weeks until November 10, 2020. Given that Halloween is taking place later this week, the new mode and map seems like the perfect opportunity to ring in the scariest time of the year, especially if you (or a friend) happens to be terrified of puppets. But then again…aren’t we all?
Rainbow Six Siege is available now on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, with the game also coming to PS5 and Xbox Series X/Series S at a later date.
