Today, Ubisoft® announced a new limited-time event for Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six® Siege Year 5 Season 2: M.U.T.E. Protocol. This event brings a fresh new take on the Secure Area game mode, based in a futuristic version of the map ‘Tower’.
This event will last two weeks, from August 5th until August 17th . In this futuristic sci-fi inspired 5-vs.-5 mode, attackers are flying in and trying to shutdown M.U.T.E Protocol by any means necessary, while defenders hold up in Comm Tower, defending it at all cost. 41 Operators will be available to play, with a few exceptions for gameplay reasons: Twitch, Thatcher, Mozzie, Mute, Maestro, Valkyrie, Dokkaebi, Echo, Goyo, Clash, Montagne, Blitz and Caveira won’t be available.
Even for players who are used to playing Secure Area, M.U.T.E. Protocol’s new game mode is unique, as it is based on a brand-new feature: Morphing. On the attacking side, players will have to secure two areas, and will be able to switch between Operator and Drone forms by entering and exiting Observation Tools. On the defending side, Operators will be able to use bulletproof cameras to travel digitally through the network.
The M.U.T.E. Protocol event comes with its own Collection of 26 items, featuring exclusive customisations for Jackal, Lion, Ying, Kapkan, Mira, Mute, Oryx and Vigil. Players can earn M.U.T.E Protocol packs through a special Event Challenge, purchase packs for 300 R6 Credits or 12500 Renown each in the Packs section of the Home screen. Inside the packs, players will also find signature items, including the event’s signature weapon skin, exclusive to this Collection. Finally, each Operator’s exclusive, time-limited customisation items will be available for purchase as Bundles in the Shop section for 1680 R6 Credits each. Year 5 Pass owners will have a 10% discount on individual bundles and Pack prices.
