Rainbow Six Siege was first released back in 2015, but its still going strong. One of the biggest reasons behind that is the simple fact that they still continue to release new weapons, characters, DLC and have events.
This time around, Rainbow Six Siege is having a new Outbreak Event.
Outbreak is an upcoming cooperative game mode in Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege to be introduced in the Operation Chimera expansion. It will be playable during four weeks of the Outbreak Event for free for the game owners. It will also feature an exclusive collection of cosmetics, available only during the time of the event.
“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.”
According to Ubisoft, the collection will NOT have any gameplay elements, only cosmetic items.
“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.”
The Rainbow Six Siege event will be available to everyone that owns the game, for free!
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
The Rainbow Six Siege event will begin on March 6th. Ubisoft has also announced that they will have newly revised editions of the games that will be available as well. They include;
Starter Edition ($14.99USD or regional equivalent)
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.
Advanced Edition ($59.99USD or regional equivalent)
You will notice that the Standard Edition is no longer available. The Standard Edition has been replaced with the Advanced Edition. The Advanced Edition comes with all of the content that the Standard Edition had – 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 ($89.99USD or regional equivalent)
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 ($129.99USD or regional equivalent)
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.
