Year 4 is alive and well in Rainbow Six: Siege, and with it the game will undergo some alterations in terms of content, pricing and version availability. In fact, there will be new editions, alongside some DLC operator price reductions. The latter will be handled through a scaling system, which will alter their prices so that older operators will be cheaper and easier to unlock. Rainbow Six: Siege Starter Edition owners will even be given the opportunity to work towards unlocking the 20 legacy operators.
Meanwhile, Ubisoft has announced new editions and alterations to the game’s offered versions. You can see all of that below:
The PC Starter Edition is being removed from digital stores. All current owners of the Starter Edition will be automatically upgraded to the Rainbow Six Siege Edition. For current Starter Edition owners, all progression and content previously unlocked will be carried over. By removing the Starter Edition, all new players save approximately 150 hours unlocking all base operators at the current progression system rates.
