Rainbow Six Siege Starting Limited-Time In-Game Event: Showdown

Ubisoft is running the latest event for Rainbow Six Siege - titled ‘Showdown’. The event will run until July 16th and feature a 3 vs 3 game mode on an exclusive map, Fort Truth. You can check out the full trailer below.

They roam across the land, bringing order to those who ain’t got any, and they ain’t about to let nobody stop them. They are The Law. On the opposite side, the lawbreaking Graveltop Gang. Some say that gunpowder runs through their veins. The only thing they believe in is gold, and they will grab it by hook or by crook.

In the Wildest days of the West, these two factions clashed on many occasions, yet the Graveltop Gang always managed to vanish into the desert. Until they finally faced off in the husk of an old fort. That day, they say, bullets rained like never before.

These two have grudges to settle… and bodies to bury.

UBISOFT® WELCOMES YOU TO FORT TRUTH FOR AN EXCLUSIVE SHOWDOWN EVENT IN TOM CLANCY’S RAINBOW SIX® SIEGE

The limited-time event takes you back to the wild west with the special Fort Truth map


Montreal — July 2, 2019 — Today, Ubisoft® released Showdown, a Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six® Siege limited-time in-game event. Showdown will introduce an all-new game mode only for the brave of heart.

Available from July 2 to July 16, this trip back to the gunslinger wild west will introduce a tension-filled 3 vs 3 game mode with a “secure area type” exclusive map, Fort Truth. This limited game mode will see two trios of Attackers and Defenders competing with only a BOSG.12.2 and a Magnum LFP586 in hand to face off against each other. Moreover, Showdown will introduce a limited HUD where health, ammo, and crosshairs are stripped away, and no preparation phase is allowed.
The Showdown event will introduce 31 western-themed exclusive items. Showdown exclusive items will include full wild west outfits composed of various items, alongside headgear that players can acquire for 10 operators.

E3 2019: Watch Dogs: Legion Announced

Ubisoft has announced the next game in the Watch Dogs franchise, titled Watch Dogs: Legion will be coming March 6th 2020 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Google Stadia. Ubisoft Toronto took centered stage in the press release as the driving force behind the games biggest draw - being able to play as anyone.

Thanks to a never-before-seen gameplay innovation created by Ubisoft Toronto*, the studio behind Watch Dogs: Legion, players will have complete freedom to ‘Play as Anyone.’ Every Londoner in the open world is fully simulated, with a persistent life and backstory, and players can recruit anyone from the entire population into their team. From an MI5 agent to a tough bareknuckle fighter, from a brilliant hacker to an illegal street racer, or from a rising football star to a geriatric grandma, anyone can join the resistance and become the hero of the story.

Ubisoft also announced Watch Dogs 2 will be part of the their newly announced UPlay + program which will be launching later this year. Full press release below!

UBISOFT ® ANNOUNCES WATCH DOGS®: LEGION

Watch Dogs®: Legion Introduces Gameplay Innovation  Enabling Players to ‘Play as Anyone’ in Near-Future London

MONTREAL – June 10, 2019– Today at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), Ubisoft® announced that Watch Dogs®: Legion, the newest installment of the blockbuster Watch Dogs® franchise will be available worldwide on March 6, 2020 for PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, the Xbox One family of devices including Xbox One X and Windows PC. Watch Dogs: Legion will also launch on the new generation gaming platform, Stadia

In the near future, London is facing its downfall: people are being oppressed by an all-seeing surveillance state, a corrupt private military corporation controls the streets, and a powerful crime syndicate is preying on the most vulnerable. In Watch Dogs: Legion, the player’s mission is to build a resistance to fight back against the emergence of an authoritarian regime.

Thanks to a never-before-seen gameplay innovation created by Ubisoft Toronto*, the studio behind Watch Dogs: Legion, players will have complete freedom to ‘Play as Anyone.’ Every Londoner in the open world is fully simulated, with a persistent life and backstory, and players can recruit anyone from the entire population into their team. From an MI5 agent to a tough bareknuckle fighter, from a brilliant hacker to an illegal street racer, or from a rising football star to a geriatric grandma, anyone can join the resistance and become the hero of the story.

Every character also has unique gameplay traits, based on their profile. Once they join the team, players choose their class, level them up, and unlock new abilities and upgrades. They can easily swap between them and approach the challenges of the game the way they want using hacking and drones, stealth, melee or combat, lethal or non-lethal.

In Watch Dogs: Legion, the players' choices have real consequences. If non-lethal force is used, the enemy will attempt to subdue and arrest the player. But if the player shoots to kill, their characters could be wounded or even permanently killed.

In Watch Dogs: Legion, players can even bring their unique team online and team up with their friends in four-player co-op, while sharing their progression between single-player and online.

In addition, Ubisoft announced the Gold, Ultimate and Collector’s Editions** for Watch Dogs: Legion:

  • Gold Edition includes the base game and the Season Pass.

  • Ultimate Edition includes Gold Edition and Ultimate digital content, including four weeks VIP Status to earn experience and currency faster.

  • Collector’s Edition includes the Ultimate Edition plus the LED Ded Coronet Mask Replica, an exclusive Steelbook®, a set of three stickers and a recto-verso propaganda poster, all inspired by the game's universe, and instant access to the mask in-game. Collector’s Edition is exclusive to the Ubisoft Store.

Fans who purchase the Gold, Ultimate or Collector’s editions will be able to get the game up to three days early from the standard release date. Fans who pre-order Watch Dogs Legion will receive access to the Golden King Pack with the “Uneasy Lies” Mask Skin, the “Serpent Sisters” Pistol Skin and the “Lux” Car Skin.

Moreover, Ubicollectibles revealed Watch Dogs: Legion: Resistant of London, its new figurine inspired directly from the world of Watch Dogs. This 26 cm figurine shows a DedSec operative in an iconic pose, wearing either the Winston mask or the King of Hearts mask (as two switchable masks will be included) and stepping defiantly on an Albion mercenary’s helmet as a proud member of London's resistance. This piece holds a burnt Black Jack flag, the symbol of the city’s decay. On top of that, a unique ULC code that unlocks the in-game mask “King of Hearts” will be included for free.

Watch Dogs: Legion will also be available on Uplay+, Ubisoft’s subscription service for Windows PC. More details on Uplay+ can be found on Uplay.com.***
