New Twitch Drops will be available for Six Invitational 2021: ‘May’ Edition

Ubisoft has just confirmed that Twitch Drops will be back for the May edition of the Six Invitational 2021.

When the Six Invitational 2021 got postponed in February, Ubisoft still continued with the Twitch Drops by partnering with pro players and coaches, who were given access to enable Drops on their stream. Rainbow Six Siege players were able to earn these SI-themed drops by watching their streams, and also the Year 6 reveal panel.

But now, with the Invitationals getting rescheduled for May, Ubisoft has decided to bring back some new exclusive items for the revamped SI’21.

In case you missed our previous coverage, the French government has authorized Ubisoft to hold the Six Invitational 2021 in Paris, from May 11th to 23rd, with no audience on-site. The six Brazilian teams, who were facing travel restrictions before, have now been given the green light to enter the country, following strict safety regulations.

According to Ubisoft, the matches will indeed be played on the new Y6S3.1 patch, which significantly nerfed Jager’s AR, switched smoke grenades from Ace to Thermite, and more. So, get ready for some exciting gameplay from the top teams in the world.
