Rainbow Six Seas is five years old and celebrates in retro “one year” mode

Rainbow Six Seas is officially old enough to go to kindergarten. Yes, surprisingly resilient strategic shooter turned five years old on December 1 and Ubisoft is celebrating with limited time legacy arcade mode. As the name suggests, Legacy returns to the arcade seasons the way it was played five years ago – with only 20 operators, their old loadouts and houses, Hereford base and a map of the presidential plane in their original forms. You can check out the quick trailer for Legacy Arcade mode below.

Here’s a little more detail about Legacy Arcade Mode:

For this arcade, you will have to play as one of the 20 operators of our main roster. Sledge, Ash, Thatcher, IQ or Twitch, your choice will reflect our first year landscape.

Although your rators parameters will have their current capabilities, all your secondary devices will match the original loadout of the game. That means no Matimore, no effect or anything that was later released into the game. It also means that the space, 2.5x (ACOG) they have will be returned once the weapons of Ash, Bandit and Jagar are released. The only exception being the deployable shield, which will remain in the present. The game mode of this arcade will be Plant Bomb in Casual Rules. You will be moving between attack and defense at the end of each round.

Everyone who plays Legacy Arcade will get a free will operator from Ubisoft as a gift. If you already have all the operators, you’ll find the following festive skin for Ash.

Rainbow Six Seas is now available on PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X / S, PS4 and PS5. Legacy Arcade mode is available from now until January 5th. The game is between its 5th fourth and final season, titled Operation Operation Neon Dawn – get more details here.
