Rainbow Six Siege's Latest Outbreak Trailer Teases A New Kind Of Threat

Ubisoft plans to kick off the third season of Rainbow Six Siege in roughly a month. The first batch of new content, Operation Chimera, includes a special event called Outbreak that sounds different from anything we've seen from the title thus far. 

This free, cooperative event takes place in Truth or Consequences, New Mexico, which has been quarantined after a crashed space capsule unleashes a devastating parasite that is turning the town's residents into monsters. Choosing your operators of choice from a list of eligible soldiers (including two new ones), you and two other friends must venture into the quarantine zone and neutralize the threat. The three maps included in Outbreak are much larger than the traditional Rainbow Six Siege maps, promising a new type of experience. 

You can watch the new teaser trailer for the event here:

Operation Chimera launches with the Outbreak event, two new operators, and a host of cosmetic unlockables on March 6 across the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
