Publisher Ubisoft and developer Ubisoft Milan have announced the Rainbow Six Siege Halloween 2021 event is now live across PC and consoles, unleashing the Doktor’s Curse once again.
The new Rainbow Six Siege Halloween 2021 event is running from now until November 2nd, where one team of five hunters has to find the five monsters hiding within the Doktor’s Castle. There’s naturally spooky, Halloween-themed items you can obtain from playing the mode.
The new event takes place on a Halloween-themed version of the Theme Park map, making it look and feel like the twisted scientists lair. To get into the new mode, you have to queue up for a 5v5 match of Hide and Seek in Doktor’s Castle. Once the mode kicks off, you’ll become a hunter or a monster, however you can only use melee weapons and gadgets.
Just like other events in Siege, there are Halloween-themed cosmetic collectibles you can get while playing Doktor’s Curse and completing event challenges.
Here’s a new trailer for the event:
Here’s a rundown on the event:
Rainbow Six Siege is about to get spooky with the return of Doktor’s Curse. The limited-time event runs from October 12 to November 2, and features a new version of the Monster Hunt game mode set in the familiar Frankenstein-inspired version of the Theme Park map, where Doc’s dreadful horrors roam free. And this time around, monsters will hunt monsters.
In this new 5v5 Monster Hunt mode, attacking Exterminators must kill all their opponents, while the defending Monsters try to survive. Monsters Lion and Jackal have joined the attacking Exterminators. The rest of the Exterminators’ roster is filled out by Sledges, who can only wield sledgehammers as weapons, and who use one of three select gadgets attached to Operator skins: Eyenox Model III (Jackal), Heartbeat Sensor (Pulse), and EE-ONE-D (Lion). Together, they will hunt five other monsters from a cast including Lesion, Frost, Kapkan, Smoke, and Ela, with new additions Aruni and Melusi. These defending monsters do not have weapons, but can use traps as well as an ability created for the mode: they can become momentarily invisible and run faster to escape.
You can get a free Doktor’s Curse pack just by logging in between October 12 and November 2, and get three other packs by completing Ubisoft Challenges. The Doktor’s Curse Collection includes bundles for Smoke, Kapkan, Frost, Lesion, Doc, Bandit and Ela, plus bundles for new Monsters Jackal, Lion, Aruni, Melusi, and Kaid. Purchase bundles for 1680 R6 Credits each, or via the collection packs for 300 R6 Credits each.
