The Rainbow Six: Siege PC Starter Edition is back! Available for a limited time, you will be able to purchase the Starter Edition on PC through Uplay.
PC players looking for an inexpensive way to jump into Rainbow Six: Siege no longer have to wait to get their fix. Starting September 15th on Uplay, a special Starter Edition of the game will be available for $15/€15 on PC for a limited time. The Starter Edition offers the full Rainbow Six: Siege experience, with all maps and Operators available, but unlocking new Operators works a little differently.
If you’re familiar with the Starter Edition from June, it is exactly the same as last time. For new players, those who buy the Starter Edition will immediately get access to two Operators, along with 600 R6 Credits to spend on two more Operators (or other unlocks) of their choice. The two initially available Operators are randomly chosen from a pool of six – Rook, Sledge, Ash, Fuze, Mute, and Smoke –determined to be the most intuitive for entry-level players. Additional operators can be unlocked in the Starter Edition by earning 12,500 renown (compared to 500-2,000 renown in the Standard Edition).
