Ubisoft is changing the pace in Rainbow Six Siege with the introduction of a limited-time time event featuring a futuristic version of the 5v5 Secure Area mode on the neon-themed Tower map.

The limited-time event is called the Mute Protocol Event and you can check out the trailer below:

The trailer showcases popping neon colors, synth beats, and futuristic abilities. A mode like this was unexpected in a game like Rainbow Six Siege, but who doesn't like a surprise? 

The Mute Protocol event launched on the PC, PS4, and Xbox One earlier today and it will run for the next two weeks, until Monday, August 17. The event features a brand new ability that allows attackers to morph between an Operator and a Drone when entering drone observation mode. On the defensive side, defenders can use bulletproof cameras to teleport around the map.

Having found these new futuristic abilities, the attackers have to use them to shut down the Mute Protocol and the defenders have to prevent the attackers from succeeding in their attempt. All current Operators are playable in the mode, with the exception of Blitz, Caviera, Clash, Dokkaebi, Echo, Goyo, Maestro, Montagne, Mozzie, Mute, Thatcher, Twitch, and Valkyrie. 

The event also brings several futuristic cosmetics for Jackal, Kapkan, Lion, Mira, Mute, Oryx, Vigil and Ying, as well as an event-exclusive weapon cosmetic. Some of these cosmetics can be unlocked by completing event challenges, while other cosmetics have to be unlocked using R6 Credits. If you own the Year 5 Pass for the game, you can score a 10% discount on individual packs and bundles.

Having played the event, it seems that Ubisoft is celebrating the launch of its free-to-play BR through this event. Hyper Scape is set in a futuristic virtual world and the characters in the game also have futuristic abilities like morphing into a bouncing ball, teleporting, and going invisible for a limited-time.
