Rainbow Six Siege enters Year 3, Ubisoft has announced couple of changes the game’s pricing structure which includes removing one edition of the game and replacing it with a more expensive one. You used to be able to pick up Rainbow Six Siege for $40 USD, but now the standard version of the game will set you back $60 USD.
The $15 Starter Edition (which lets players play on every map for free but makes unlocking operators take longer) will remain the same. However, the $40 Standard edition (which lets players shorten the unlock time for operators) has been replaced with a $60 Advanced Edition, which is almost exactly the same as the Standard Edition was except that it will also offer 600 Rainbow Six credits and 10 Outbreak Collection packs. In addition, the Gold and Complete editions have been updated to reflect the new Year 3 plans.
Year 3 will add eight new operators and include a few seasonal events throughout the year. One of those is Outbreak, a four-week co-op event which will have players take on waves of enemies. Players will be able to purchase Outbreak packs which will include only cosmetic items, and will never drop duplicates.
