Ubisoft decided to bring back the discounted Starter Edition of Rainbow Six Siege for the PC, and apparently it’s for good. As of today, players can get the game for $15 through Uplay. This will include the full game with all game modes and maps, the only catch is you will have a limited selection of Operators, unlockable characters.
The standard edition is discounted on Uplay at $25. If you feel like balling out, the year 2 Gold Edition is $80 and the Complete Edition for $100
With the Starter Edition you can have access to four Operators to start off with, the others you can unlock two ways, one is the R6 Credits which is in game currency that you purchase with real money *sigh*, and the other is with Renown, you get this by simply playing the game doing challenges, winning matches, etc. Keep in mind that Renown is higher cost if you don’t have the Standard Edition.
The characters that you’ll start off with will more than likely be in a pool of the following: Sledge, Rook, Ash, Fuze, Mute and Smoke. Starter kit comes with 600 R6 credits, which should be enough to get at least one Operator that you’ve got your eye on.
If you always wanted to try the game or considering making a comeback after trying the free weekend then here’s you chance to make a small investment on a game that many people consider a top notch tactical shooter.
