Rainbow Six Siege Showdown mode now live

Ubisoft has shown real faith in Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege. The game launched as something of an incomplete package. If you check in with the game now, though, you’ll find not only a fully fleshed out multiplayer game but one with a ton of content. Ubisoft has brought numerous updates with a load of new operators and maps to the Tom Clancy entry. Well, for the latest update to the game, they’re changing things up.

The latest content for the game is The Showdown event. This not only mixes things up by making matches 3×3 but also moves everything to a Western setting. The new map for this event is called Fort Truth, a brand new secure area designed specifically for The Showdown. You play as either The Law or the Graveltop Gang. You choose one of ten characters, 5 for each side of the law. Weapons are also restricted with players only having access to BOSG 12.2 Shotgun and Magnum LFP586 revolver.

If you want to know more, here are the couple of trailers along with their official descriptions –

It’s a Showdown at Fort Truth! Play a brand new 3v3 Secure Area map in this limited time in-game event from July 2-16. Your posse of three will face off against another trio to overtake the ruins of Fort Truth and its mountain of gold. Log in during the event to get your free Showdown Collection Pack, plus earn more by completing Ubisoft Club Challenges.


This special edition of New On the Six brings the Western Showdown Event Collection, available in-game July 6 – 23. There are 31 exclusive items to get, the same ones your Event Operators will be wearing. Get a free pack if you log in or complete the Ubisoft Club Challenges to earn a pack and a unique weapon skin for the BOSG.12.2! Be sure to get yours before the event ends!

The Showdown event for Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege runs until the 16th July. If 3×3 Rainbow Six: Siege is your kind of thing, check out the announcement of the upcoming Quarantine mode.
