Rainbow Six third year is about to launch with new retail sku and the Outbreak event

01/25/2018 12:00 PM

In 2018, we are making some changes to the game versions that are available for purchase. We will provide you with a bit more detail below, but the major points can be seen here:


Starter Edition

The Starter Edition of Rainbow Six Siege remains unchanged. It continues to be only available on PC and comes with access to all Rainbow Six Siege content: modes, maps, weapon options, level progression, and 600 Rainbow Six Credits, which can be used to purchase operators or cosmetics. The main difference between the Starter Edition and any other edition is that it takes an extended amount of time to unlock the 20 original Operators. The 20 original Operators cost 12,500 Renown each with the Starter Edition.


Standard Edition

The Standard Edition of Rainbow Six Siege remains unchanged. This edition gives you access to all Rainbow Six content: modes, maps, weapon options, level progression and the standard amount of time required to unlock the original 20 operators.


Advanced Edition

The Advanced Edition comes with all of the content that the Standard Edition has – access to all Rainbow Six Siege content: modes, maps, weapon options, level progression and the standard amount of time required to unlock the original 20 Operators. As an added benefit, the Advanced Edition comes with 600 Rainbow Six Credits, and 10 Outbreak Collection Packs. More information pertaining to the Outbreak Packs can be found below.


Gold Edition

The Year 2 Gold Edition has been retired now that we are entering Year 3. The new Gold Edition will contain all of the content in the Advanced Edition, as well as a Year 3 pass.


Complete Edition

Given that we have a third year of content coming, we will also be making a change to the Complete Edition. It will now come with all content included in the Advanced Edition, the Year 1 and Year 2 Operators unlocked, and the Year 3 Pass.


More on Outbreak, and the new Outbreak Collection


An infestation of unknown origin is attacking the small town of Truth or Consequences, New Mexico. The danger is so high that the authorities quarantined the entire town, trapping civilians and soldiers inside. Very little information is filtering out, but the only certainty is that the situation is dire.

Outbreak is a four-week event where all Rainbow Six owners will be able to team-up with two of their friends to take on a mysterious threat. This free event will begin with the launch of the Year 3 Season 1 title update.

Within the duration of the 4 weeks event, an exclusive collection of cutting edge HazMat cosmetic will be available. This gear will be found in the Outbreak Packs.


OpsCusto


In line with our promise to you from the beginning, the Outbreak Packs will not provide you with any gameplay elements, and will contain cosmetic items only.

The Outbreak Collection is composed of a total of 50 unique items, and no duplicates. What this means is, if you acquire 50 Outbreak Packs, we guarantee that you will have the entire Collection, including the Elite Uniform. They will contain universal weapon skins, unique weapon skins, headgear, uniforms, charms, as well as an Outbreak Collection exclusive of this season’s Elite Uniform. While there is a unique variation of the Elite Uniform available in the Outbreak Packs, the standard version of this Elite Uniform will be available for direct purchase once the event has started. All items in the pack will be either Rare, Epic, Legendary, and there will not be any content overlap between the Outbreak Packs and the Alpha Packs.


Outbreak Weapon Skins


The Outbreak Packs can only be acquired for 300 R6 Credits each. That being said, a few other Outbreak rewards will be available through game play, and will be awarded based on other criteria to be disclosed at a later date.

All players that log in during the Outbreak Event will receive four Outbreak Packs immediately. For those of you who are new to the game and purchase the Advanced Edition before or during the Outbreak Event, you will receive the 10 packs that are included in the Advanced Edition, plus the four for logging in during the event. If you purchase the Advanced Edition after the event is over, you will still receive the 10 Outbreak Packs.

The Outbreak Collection will contain cosmetic gear for the following Operators:

  • Two Chimera Operators
  • Smoke
  • Ying
  • Buck
  • Kapkan
  • Hibana
  • Zofia
  • Fuze
  • Ash
  • Doc
  • Thermite
  • Tachanka
  • Glaz
