Ubisoft has revealed the following limited time event for , and that could whet your appetite . The Containment event features a new game mode called Nest Destruction, in which you will try to rebuild or defend an alien nest on an updated version of the consulate map.
The attackers play as a team of REACT agents tasked with destroying nests. They will oppose “the Protean team, a deadly archaic variant that can accept the form of a REACT operator,” Ubisoft said. These creatures can mimic the behavior of the operator and will move quickly, but can only use attacks in close attack, such as Aruni’s blow and special abilities. The attack team can only use standard loading without modifiers, and the list of operators is limited. In addition to successfully destroying or defending a nest, teams can also win by deleting opponents.
