Ubisoft details Rainbow Six: Siege post-launch support, microtransactions


Ubisoft today detailed post-launch support and microtransaction details for the upcoming Rainbow Six: Siege.

Over the game’s first year, it will receive four distinct seasons and associated content. Each season will add one new map and two new operators to the game.

The post-launch support is summarised in the handy infographic seen below.


The new content can be unlocked with in-game Renown.

“Nearly everything you do in Rainbow Six Siege will net you Renown, including winning or losing matches, kills, assists, reviving teammates, playing ranked matches, watching tutorials or completing Daily Challenges,” Ubisoft said.

Moreover, Ubisoft confirmed that R6 credits can be purchased with real-world money to unlock cosmetic items in-game.

“R6 Credits are an optional premium currency that will be available at launch in packs of 600, 1200, 2670, 4920 or 7560,” Ubisoft explained. “A pack of 600 R6 Credits will cost $4.99 USD, with larger bundles offering more Credits per dollar.”

Rainbow Six: Siege will be available from 1 December on Windows PC, Xbox One and PS4.
