Ubisoft Listens Regarding Controversial Rainbow Six

Here's what you'll get in Rainbow Six Siege's Outbreak Packs, a new paid loot box system

The Standard edition costs $40, but the new Advanced version costs $60. All players with a copy of Rainbow Six Siege can join in no matter what version they bought contrary to the recent issue with Destiny 2 wherein players with only a copy of the base game were locked out from content that came with their purchase.

The Starter Edition will continue to be offered much as it always has, at a discounted price that slows your progression toward toward unlocking new operators. In addition to the Gold Edition content, the Complete Edition contains 16 bonus operators from the year one and year two content. "Considering that the starter edition is really shitty, new players will have to pay $60 for a two-year-old game", user Azagorath.

Ubisoft is making significant changes to the ways players can purchase Rainbow Six Siege.

Woods makes another return
It has stood the test of time for 23 years but the twice US Open and The Open Championship victor feels it will be eclipsed. But they'll send a crew over to the South for "bonus coverage" to show Tiger's round right from start at 1:40 p.m.

On the other hand, longterm Rainbow Six: Siege players feel they're being cheated, as new players can get 10 additional Outbreak Packs, whereas those who've been with the game for some time are forced to spend money for more packs. The Complete Edition also gets a $20 bump from $110 to $130. As for the basic Starter Edition, well there's something happening with that too and but information on what's changing there should be forthcoming during the Six Invitational on 13 February. The four-week long Outbreak event will have three player teams, which will fight a "mysterious threat" in a town which has been quarantined with soldiers and civilians inside. Here's how Ubisoft sets up the backstory of what's going on: "An infestation of unknown origin is attacking the small town of Truth or Consequences, New Mexico. Very little information is filtering out, but the only certainty is that the situation is dire", Ubisoft stated. For now, players who log in during the event will be getting four free packs.

A pricing restructure like this might seem counterintuitive two years into a game's lifecycle, but Rainbow Six Siege has gone from strength-to-strength since launching in December 2015. Outbreak will launch when Year 3's first season update does, which will tentatively be around March 6.

There won't be any duplicates when opening packs; Ubisoft says that if you get 50 packs, you'll get all 50 items. There's no time limit attached to the packs bundled in these editions and items can still be used after the Outbreak event ends.
