Rainbow Six reveals Grand Larceny event with Stolen Goods arcade mode

Ubisoft have surprised Rainbow Six players with the release of a new event titled Grand Larceny, with a new arcade playlist just weeks out from the expected release of Year 5 Season 2 content.

Waiting for Year 5 Season 2 to finally come out? Ubisoft is looking to fill the content gap with a fun event while you wait for the next operators to come out.

The Grand Larceny event features over 30 new cosmetics and a limited-time game mode with an all-new objective.

Stolen Goods arcade playlist

While players have known about the Stolen Goods arcade playlist for some time ⁠— having been leaked in March ⁠— they weren’t expecting it to come in Y5S1. The Golden Gun event ran back earlier in Operation Void Edge as the designated one arcade playlist per season.

Stolen Goods is set on a reworked version of the old Hereford Base map. It’s a 5v5 game mode where attackers have to open a number of safes. Defenders will obviously have to defend these safes.

All operators will be equipped with a shotgun to open up the completely destructible floors, so some characters without shotguns have been excluded.

17 of the game’s 26 attackers are available, while 23 defenders (Tachanka, Mozzie, Clash excluded) are available.

Kali, Nomad, Lion, Blackbeard, Buck, Montagne, Twitch, Blitz, IQ, and Glaz won’t be available for play in Stolen Goods.

Grand Larceny cosmetics

There are 31 cosmetics available in the Grand Larceny event. A Legendary uniform for Wamai, named Striped Syndicate, tops the list as the most valuable. However, nine other operators are getting some decent looking cosmetics yet.

Amaru, Echo, Fuze, Gridlock, Hibana, Kaid, Maestro, Maverick, and Warden all have new uniforms that can only be obtained from Grand Larceny event packs.

You can earn these event packs through playing the Stolen Goods arcade playlist, or buying them in the in-game shop for 11,250 renown each, or 270 R6 credits. Buying all 31 packs will set you back 348,750 renown, or 8,370 R6 credits.

Ubisoft
Isn’t this quite the dapper cast?

The Grand Larceny event is only building hype for Year 5 Season 2 content. Operation Hidden Eyes is expected to feature a South African defender Philisiwe and Norwegian attacker Odin. House is also getting a map rework.

The expected reveal of Y5S2 is just around the corner, having originally been billed for May 17 in time for the Pro League Season 11 Finals. While the dates haven’t been confirmed yet, be sure to keep your eyes peeled in the coming days.

The Grand Larceny event is only here for two weeks. Be sure to log on before May 19 to play the new mode and grab the cosmetics you want before they disappear.

Rainbow Six: Siege’s next massive event, the Six November 2020 Major, is starting soon and the best teams from all four corners of the globe will duke it out to determine who is the cream of the crop in each region.

Rainbow Six: Siege is thrilling to play, but it’s even more intense to watch. The nature of the cat-and-mouse gameplay makes it an absolute spectacle, especially when you’re watching the best players and teams in the world.

The Six November 2020 Major is the next premier event in the professional scene. A stacked lineup of teams will be pitted against each other in separate regional divisions to determine who is the best.

If that’s not enough, it also has a global prize pool of $500,000 split across each region. The Six November 2020 Major will happen in four different stages throughout the upcoming weeks.

If you’re as excited to watch it as we are, here’s everything you need to know.

It’s been a while since the last live Rainbow Six: Siege event due to the pandemic.

Six November 2020 Major stream

Ubisoft will host all of the matches on their Twitch channel which can be found here. The schedule is organized in a way where there will only be one series on at any given time. That means you won’t have to have multiple tabs and streams open. All you need to do is sit back, relax, and enjoy the show.

Six November 2020 Major teams and regions

The Rainbow Six: Siege November Major 2020 was originally supposed to take place in Europe. However, due to the ongoing pandemic, it was divided into an online event split across each region.

Unfortunately, that means there is no group stage. Instead, there will be four teams in Latin America, Europe, and North Americal, and six teams in Asia-Pacific.

Other than that, it will follow a traditional double-elimination format with best-of-three series and a best-of-five grand final. Here’s a list of all the teams in each region.
