The Rainbow Six Siege PC Starter Edition is back!

The Rainbow Six Siege PC Starter Edition is back! Available for a limited time, you will be able to purchase the Starter Edition on PC through Uplay.
PC players looking for an inexpensive way to jump into Rainbow Six Siege no longer have to wait to get their fix. The Starter Edition offers the full Rainbow Six Siege experience, with all maps and Operators available, but unlocking new Operators works a little differently.
Those who buy the Starter Edition will immediately get access to two Operators, along with 600 R6 Credits to spend on two more Operators (or other unlocks) of their choice. The two initially available Operators are randomly chosen from a pool of six – Rook, Sledge, Ash, Fuze, Mute, and Smoke –determined to be the most intuitive for entry-level players. Additional operators can be unlocked in the Starter Edition by earning 12,500 renown (compared to 500-2,000 renown in the Standard Edition).
Aside from that difference, however, the Starter Edition includes access to the same maps, modes, level progression, weapon options, post-launch content, servers, and matchmaking options as the standard version, with zero restrictions and no level cap. The Starter Edition also works with the Year 2 Pass, which grants access to the eight upcoming Year 2 Operators being added throughout 2017 (who are also available for 25,000 Renown or 600 R6 Credits each, which applies to both editions). Additionally, those who want to earn Operators a little more quickly can take advantage of the same Renown-boosting Daily and Weekly Challenges and weekly Operators discounts available to other players, and can purchase instant access to all 16 remaining Operators with a $35 R6 Credits Bundle.
The Rainbow Six Siege Starter Edition will be available on PC starting February 22 on Uplay.
