Ubisoft just announced a new limited-time event in Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege Year 5 Season 2: M.U.T.E. Protocol. The event brings a fresh new take on the Secure Area game mode. It’s based in a futuristic version of the Tower map.
The limited-time event lasts for two weeks. It kicks off tomorrow, August 4, and runs until August 17. In this futuristic sci-fi inspired 5-vs.-5 mode, attackers fly in and try to shut down M.U.T.E Protocol by any means necessary. Defenders hold up in Comm Tower, defending it at all costs.
According to Ubisoft, 41 Operators are 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.
Here are more details from Ubiosft:
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 customizations for Jackal, Lion, Ying, Kapkan, Mira, Mute, Oryx, and Vigil. These high-tech stylings are the same players will find in-game by picking these Operators to play the Event. Inside the packs, players will also find some signature items, including the event’s signature weapon skin, exclusive to this collection. 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. Finally, each Operator’s exclusive, time-limited customization items are also 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.
