Welcome to my Nightmare
Every Halloween, Ubisoft’s multiplayer shooter Rainbow Six Siege likes to get into the spirit of the season with strange and usually horrific in-game events. But seeing as 2020 is a truly maniacal year, Siege‘s new event, “Sugar Fright,” is taking a particularly weird turn.
Beginning tomorrow, October 27, Sugar Fright is set within the head of Canadian operator Frost, as her subconscious whisks the R6 trapper away to a dream-scape world of “candy and death.” Here, four operators battle it out in new a Deathmatch-style mode, “Candy War” which includes re-spawn abilities (a first for the notoriously punishing shooter), and the caramel-coated goal of gathering as much candy as possible before the time limit expires.
Oh, and also, everyone is now a freaky-ass bug-eyed puppet.
Yes, for a little added weirdness, a selection of operators – including Ela, Castle, Pulse, I.Q. Goyo, Zofia, and Frost herself are now stylized with Muppet-style heads, a nightmarish vision that has to be seen to be believed. These looks, along with new, candy-based weapon skins, can be unlocked in limited-time Sugar Fright packs – which are earned in-game or purchased at a cost of 300 R6 Credits/125,000 Renown each.
The Sugar Fright event will end on November 10, so be sure to satisfy that sweet tooth while you can.
