Rainbow Six: Siege event introduces loot boxes, $20 price increase

Here's what you'll get in Rainbow Six Siege's Outbreak Packs, a new paid loot box system Ubisoft hikes Rainbow Six Siege prices for Year 3

As it's evolved to include more and more content, Rainbow Six Siege has become one of the greatest "bang for your buck" titles. Players used to be able to snag the base game for $40, but Ubisoft just revealed that the standard version has been replaced with the 'Advanced Edition, ' which will sell for $60. Siege's year three content will begin to roll out this spring, and hopefully the publisher will answer the questions posed by its players and potential customers before then.

Ubisoft has now responded on Reddit, and although the studio doesn't say much about the loot boxes, it has somewhat backtracked and has chose to keep Rainbow Six Siege's standard $40 edition in stores. For one, PC players will still have access to a $15 Starter Edition, which includes the full game but requires a lengthier gameplay grind to unlock playable "Operators". If you want to spend more money, a $US90 ($112) edition will include all of this plus the Year 3 pass, while a $US120 ($149) Complete Edition will include Year 1 and 2 content as well.

Ubisoft teased a new limited-time event for "Rainbow Six Siege" together with some changes to its retail versions.

Outbreak Packs are a new loot box-style item to be implemented as part of the upcoming four week event.

Siege developer Ubisoft recently announced the game's next big event, "Outbreak", kicking off in the spring. The four-week long Outbreak event will have three player teams, which will fight a "mysterious threat" in a town which has been quarantined with soldiers and civilians inside. The Ash Sidewinder Elite will be automatically granted to your inventory at the launch of Year 3 Season 1. This means the extra $20 is exclusively tied to the 10 Outbreak packs.

On top of that, if you guys remember the News about the Rainbow Six Siege Outbreak Event that is coming which will be bringing a new mode and exclusive cosmetics. 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 awful tendency to overprice its cosmetics beyond belief. In short, absolutely everything released for the game to date. 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. This, in addition to the developer's loot box plans (Outbreak packs), hasn't gone down well with veteran players who have voiced their frustration on various social media channels.
