The "starter edition" which gives players access to all the maps, but slows down the progression of unlocking operators, will remain $15.
The price of the Starter Edition has been left untouched.
You will notice that the Standard Edition is no longer available.
The biggest change to the formula comes to the base version of Rainbow Six Siege, which is now known as the Advanced Edition. The Gold Edition, which is the one with the latest DLC operators, will now also come with ten new Outbreak Collection Packs and in-game currency. Though it comes with all of the content that the standard edition would come with, the bonus with this now $59.99 title is 600 Rainbow Six Credits to use within the in-game store. Most of the questions surrounded how and if the new outbreak packs would be added to existing Gold or Complete Edition owners, which isn't planned.
Finally, the Complete Edition of Siege will now cost $130, up from $110 previously.
An infestation of unknown origin is attacking the small town of Truth or Consequences, New Mexico. "Very little information is filtering out, but the only certainty is that the situation is dire". So what's up with the Outbreak event, and when will it begin? But we do have some bad news, the Pricing will be changed in the Rainbow Six Seige's edition to match Season 3 Updates. "Within the duration of the 4 weeks event, an exclusive collection of cutting edge HazMat cosmetic will be available", Ubisoft writes on its blog.
This is a limited-time event, and most people probably won't find their ultimate goal in containing the outbreak.
These Outbreak packs will only contain cosmetic items, and is composed of 50 unique items which can be acquired for 300 R6 Credits each. The collection packs will contain cosmetic items in which the added $20 value is likely to be made up for, but only because Siege has a frightful tendency to overprice its cosmetics beyond belief. Ubisoft promise that if you get 50 packs, you will have all 50 items. You'll also be able to get a unique version of the season's Elite Uniform. 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.
