Ubisoft has introduced a new Starter Edition of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege, which allows PC players to get into the game at a low price.
“The Rainbow Six community has grown tremendously since the release of Siege and we couldn’t be more proud to see the buzz and excitement from players that continues to surround the game,” brand director Alexandre Remy stated. “We hope that the Rainbow Six Siege Starter Edition will encourage even more players to get their hands on the unique multiplayer experience that the game has to offer.”
The Starter Edition comes with everything in Rainbow Six Siege’s full release, but with a majority of the game’s content being instantly available. All of the title’s maps, modes, and weapons are available from the start. Players who purchase the Starter Edition will also be able to take advantage of the same multiplayer matchmaking.
The only content that players will not have immediate access to is the full selection of operators. The Starter Edition gives players two random operators from a pool of six who are considered “accessible to newcomers:” Rook, Sledge, Ash, Fuze, Mute, and Smoke. Players will also receive 600 R6 credits, Siege’s in-game currency that is used on additional operators. All operators available at launch cost 300 credits apiece, while DLC operators cost 600 credits. Characters can also be acquired with the other in-game currency, Renown.
Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege Starter Edition will be available on PC until June 19th. It will set gamers back $15.
