On Tuesday, Ubisoft announced a new limited-time event for Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege, entitled The Grand Larceny, which introduces an all-new game mode in an elderly British version of the old Hereford map: The Stolen Goods. The event will last from May 5 until May 19.
The Grand Larceny is a 5-vs-5, inspired by the British mob of the 1920s. Most Operators will be unlocked to play in this event, with a few exceptions due to gameplay specificities. Namely, Glaz, Nomad, Buck, Montagne, Blitz, Caveira, Kali, Clash, Blackbeard, Lion, IQ, Tachanka, Recruit, Twitch and Mozzie won’t be available. Each Operator will only have a main shotgun equipped, customized with the event’s weapon skins as found in The Grand Larceny Collection and the Roaring Riches Bundle.
The Stolen Goods game mode is different from the standard ones. There are Safeboxes spread throughout the map that defenders must protect at all costs. However, they can also win rounds by eliminating all opponents. Attackers, on the other hand, must open a certain amount of Safeboxes or eliminate all the Defenders. Players will be informed where the Safeboxes are located, alongside adjustments to flooring that will remove select metal beams after destruction, allowing players to be even more creative with their shotguns.
The Grand Larceny Collection will introduce 31 items and features exclusive customization for Amaru, Fuze, Gridlock, Hibana, Maverick, Echo, Maestro, Kaid, Wamai, and Warden. These century-old stylings are the same that can be found in-game by picking these Operators to play the Event.
The Grand Larceny pack can be obtained by completing special Event Challenges (once per week) or by purchasing them for 300 R6 Credits or 12500 Renown each in the Packs section of the Home screen. The Roaring Riches Bundle, which contains the Deco Artistry signature weapon skin and the Crafted Six charm, will also be available to acquire during the event.
