Ubisoft has announced today that the in-game event — Road to Six Invitational — is back and live. The event introduces a brand-new map (Stadium) to Rainbow Six Siege and will occur weekly from today, January 16 through February 16. Each weekend, Friday to Monday, players will battle for supremacy on the new Stadium Map which has been designed especially for the Road to Six Invitational.
On Stadium, walls made of bulletproof glass, separate you from your opponents, allowing you to see each other without being able to fight. Matches on Stadium will be played in Bomb mode, with a pick and ban phase.
During the Road to Six Invitational event all Operators will be unlocked for all players on the playlist. Additionally, six of the Operators will be equipped with Road to Six Invitational gear; Blitz, Caveira, Hibana, Mozzie, Sledge, and Thermite.

The return of the Road to Six Invitational to Rainbow Six Siege also brings with it the first complete Battle Pass for the game. There are 35 Tiers on both the free and premium tracks that contain 48 unlockable rewards.
