The "Apocalypse" event that was teased a while back is finally live, but it won't last for long.

Here's everything you need to know.

Apocalypse Now

The Rainbow Six Siege Apocalypse event is live now and lasts through May 18.

Ubisoft has tweeted with a start date with some new content.

This is the same "Apocalypse" event that was leaked a while ago.

Some fans believe this leak may be pointing towards the release of Rainbow Six: Quarantine, Ubisoft's upcoming triple-A title, though that's just speculation at this point.

We'll have to wait for more information from the developers regarding the future of Rainbow Six.

Outback Map Revamp

Footage leaked on Reddit yesterday of the upcoming map that'll be used in the event.

The Outback map received a revamp, or perhaps a demake would be more appropriate.

It's got an entirely new dystopian look to fit the theme of the apocalypse, a giant reactor, and one very important plant that holds humanity's future in its little leaves.

Defenders try and protect the plant and can move its container around the map, while Defenders need to defuse the container to win.

Or one side can just wipe out the other, because that works too.
