Rainbow Six: Siege has always been a game that keeps players on the edge of their seats, but it’s about to get a whole lot spookier to celebrate Halloween after a leak revealed we can expect a new LTM, cosmetics, skins, and more.

Rainbow Six: Siege is still chugging along after all these years. However, to keep things fresh, Ubisoft has spoilt its dedicated fanbase with new content. Other games have been focusing their next events around Halloween, and it looks like Rainbow Six: Siege will follow suit.

A Reddit user named Zer0Bytes found evidence hinting that an upcoming Halloween event is in the works. He shared all the details on the Rainbow Six: Siege subreddit.

Of course, nothing is set in stone until it becomes official. But he has built up quite a case to support his claims, and if it ends up being true, it looks like players will be in for a treat without any tricks.

Here’s everything we know so far.

Sugar Fright LTM

Rainbow Six: Siege’s Halloween event will include a new limited-time-mode called Sugar Fright. It appears to be some kind of kill-confirmed mode in which players will have ten minutes to kill enemies and hold onto an item.

The best part is, it’s all about total, non-stop action. Respawns will be enabled and players will have an unlimited supply of flashbangs, grenades, and smoke grenades.

Of course, to keep things in line with the spirit of Halloween, it has to include a creepy theme. Players will also automatically wear an eerie-looking puppet on their heads.

Sugar Fright LTM has been more or less confirmed by a leaker named Benjaminstrike, who showcased the mode on Twitter. It looks like the perfect balance between spooky and fun, which is what Halloween is all about.

Halloween-themed skins and cosmetics

Unfortunately, no Halloween-themed skins and cosmetics have been confirmed yet. However, it’s inevitable that they will in due time. After all, it’s how most games embrace the occasion, and Rainbow Six: Siege won; ‘t be any different.

Players can expect everything from pumpkins and candy to ghouls, monsters, and skeletons. Last year, the event included some awesome monster skins for Bandit, Doc, Ela, Frost, Kapkan, Lesion, and Smoke.

Start Date and Time

Until an official announcement has been made, it’s impossible to know what date and time the event will begin. However, since Halloween falls on October 31st, which is just around the corner, it can’t be too far away.

Until then, all you need to do is sit back, relax, and camp behind every door and corner to scare the wits out of your opponents.

Rocket League’s first season since going cross-platform and free-to-play is coming to an end, but that means Season 2 is around the corner, and it’s set to be even more exciting than the first, with new cars, cosmetics, a new arena, and more.

Rocket League has reached new heights since going cross-platform and free-to-play. It’s become more accessible and merged its player-base into one massive community. These changes have helped the game explode in popularity once again.

The first season in the new era was a huge success. It introduced some new features and improvements that were well-received among old and new players alike. However, the show must go on, and although Season 1 is coming to an end, Season 2 is on the horizon. Here’s everything you need to know.

Rocket Pass: New Cars and Cosmetics

Rocket League Season 2 includes an exciting new Rocket Pass. It’s jam-packed with 70 tiers of unlocks that all revolve around a common theme; lights and sounds. It comes in two tiers, although the free one is limited.

Players will be able to get their hands on everything from fresh new decals, fancy light show explosions, and wheels that look like subwoofers. However, a brand new car exclusive to Rocket Pass Premium is the biggest drawcard.

Rocket Pass Premium owners will unlock the R3MX immediately. It’s an exotic sports car with a cyberpunk twist. But the excitement doesn’t end there. They’ll also be able to unlock an even better version, the R3MX GXT, in the final tier.

Neon Fields

Rocket League is not all about cars and cosmetics, though. It’s also about the bright and colorful arenas that host all the battles. In Season 2, players will be graced with an exciting new level called Neon Fields.

It has an awesome retro theme with neon shades of blue, pink, purple, and yellow. It also stays true to the lights and sounds with an enormous speaker attached to the roof with an equalizer behind the stands.

Player Anthems

Last but not least, Rocket League Season 2 will introduce a new customization option called Player Anthems. You’ll be able to select a song from Rocket League’s awesome soundtrack and have it blasting in the background every time you score a goal.

What’s more, Rocket League Season 2 will also feature new music and content from Kaskade, an immensely popular DJ affiliated with the Monstercat label. Some of his songs, including two new ones, will be available as Player Anthems too.

When does Rocket League Season 2 launch?

Rocket League Season 2 launches on December 9. However, the pre-season update goes live a day earlier on December 8 at 4 pm PDT. 

The update will also include next-gen improvements on Xbox Series X and S and other quality-of-life tweaks and bug fixes.
