This patch will be deployed on PC, Google Stadia, and Amazon Luna at 9 AM ET/1 PM UTC. Xbox players will receive the update at 10 AM ET/2 PM UTC, and PlayStation players will get it at 11 AM ET/3 PM UTC. Downtime will last about half an hour on each platform. Containment is a limited-time mode that will run through August 24, serving as a teaser for the upcoming Rainbow Six Extraction. Extraction was recently delayed until 2022, but that didn’t stop this event from happening.
This update addresses two specific issues with the Containment mode. First, players are no longer able to be killed during the preparation phase. This was a frustrating issue for many players, so it’s nice to see a fix. Second, attackers will no longer be able to shoot the main nest from the rooftop. With these issues out of the way, Containment should be more enjoyable for both attackers and defenders. Ubisoft recently teased Operation Crystal Guard, so stay tuned for more Rainbow Six Siege news in the near future.
Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege is available now on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Google Stadia, and Amazon Luna.
