Our fight is not yet over.
We would like it to be. To lay down our weapons and contemplate a world without chaos. And perhaps one day, we will be able to do exactly that. One day. However, for the moment, major threats to humanity continue to flourish in every corner of the globe. Threats both known and unknown. Those in plain sight and those hidden behind veils of shadow and deceit. Our fight is not yet over and we must be ready to meet these threats, today and for all the days that lie ahead. It is simply not enough to assemble Rainbow each time a fire breaks out somewhere in the world. We must decentralize and maximize our operational ability.
This is why I created The Program.
To bring together our very best operators so that they may learn even more from each other, becoming even stronger when they are apart. Whatever CTU, organization or NGO they belong to, they will be able to take home the lessons they learn here and share them with those who will join our fight; a viral program of excellence and passion. This Tournament of Champions is only the beginning. We must train until there are no more fights to win!
It begins here. It begins today.
Dr. Harishva “Harry” Pandey, Director of Rainbow
Harry gathered the very best Operators of the world, and they’re ready to prove their worth in the Stadium. For 5 weekends, take part in the action as you play the Road to Six Invitational 2020 event.
On a brand-new map furnished with bulletproof glass walls creating new tactical situations, you’ll have access to all Operators regardless of who you unlocked. Furthermore, six of them have been fitted with specific outfits for this momentous event, so if you see Blitz, Caveira, Hibana, Mozzie, Sledge or Thermite in a match, you’ll see them decked out in their exclusive themed sportswear.
A new, full-sized Rainbow Six Siege Battle Pass filled with a variety of rewards is coming. For 5 weeks, the Road to S.I. 2020 Battle Pass will be available with a Free and a Premium track, and 30% of revenue will go to the Six Invitational prize pool.
As the Operators proudly represent their nations, you’ll be able to unlock the outfits created for them to wear as they compete. With 35 tiers and two tracks, this Battle Pass boasts a total of 50 rewards. As you progress, you will obtain the Competitors’ exclusive gear and more.Discover the Battle Pass
Each Operator will be wearing a SIM-SUIT that has been developed by R6-LABS. It is their first layer of clothing, worn beneath all of their combat gear. The SIM-SUIT provides real-time telemetry of all contact the Operator receives and calculates its simulated damage, providing near-instantaneous feedback.
Once simulated damage has reached or exceeded its limit, Operators must remain immobile. They will then be alerted when all other Operators have cleared their vicinity, exiting the Map and heading off to their respective sidelines. Naturally, all headshots are “instant-kill”. It is important to note that the SIM-SUIT provides no protection to the Operator. The simulation rounds and explosives used during the tournament are non-lethal and when contacting an operator, detonate as white smoke. However, they are still ballistic, high-energy projectiles. They will hurt. And depending on the point of contact, they will hurt a lot.
Finally, while the system allows the Operators to absorb more “damage” than real-world combat, the “softer” lethality will demand more from them; they will have to work harder for their “kills”.
Dr. Elena “Mira” Álvarez, Director of R&D
Operators, as head of R&D, I would like to welcome you to your new home away from home! Mi casa es tu casa!
As you probably have already noticed, the stadium itself was originally built for a series of commonwealth games back in the seventies. Like so many other around the world, it was soon forgotten and left to rot. But now, thanks to The Program, the entire facility has been rebuilt, redesigned and resurrected just for us! I personally worked very closely with the engineering team, making sure we had absolutely everything we needed to really push ourselves to our limits.
Everything is state of the art; gyms, medical bay, gun range, dormitories, around the clock all you can eat cafeteria, lounges, and even a movie theatre. Not to mention, an enormous new R&D lab that Kali and I will be putting to good use developing new toys for us .
And what better place to try them out than in the new, fully modular map system! Within a reasonable delay, the map can be completely re-configured, combining any number of pre-designed room modules and passageways to connect them. It will challenge us, always presenting a new sandbox to train in. Even the sidelines for each team are equipped with a full pit-wall, allowing downed Operators to continue monitoring our teammates and giving assistance whenever possible.
I am sure it will take you no time to find your way around. If you have any questions, you can probably find me in the lab blowing something up.
