Zombies come to Rainbow Six Siege in new Outbreak mode

Ubisoft has announced plenty of new content coming to Rainbow Six Siege in 2018, including an undead horde mode.

Known as Outbreak, the upcoming mode will work in a similar fashion to horde offerings found in the likes of Call of Duty and Gears of War.

Instead of human characters, you’ll now be gunning down a wide variety of zombies, with rewards handed out to players capable of staying alive for as long as possible.

Outbreak will be launching across PS4, Xbox One and PC on March 6. Ubisoft has announced that it will run until April 3, giving players just under a month to challenge the undead.

Ubisoft has confirmed five different enemy types for Outbreak in the form of Grunts, Breachers, Rooters, Smashers and the Apex. They all require different strategies to defeat, so be ready to think on your feet.

2018 will also see Rainbow Six Siege receive a variety of new maps and operators. These will include major redesigns to existing classes alongside new ones being introduced. Players can expect visual and mechanical upgrades going forward.

Earning 8/10 in our original review, Stuart Andrews praised Rainbow Six Siege’s excellent sense of camaraderie and fiendishly addictive gameplay. It’s a shooter that has come leaps and bounds since its initial release in December 2015.
