Later this week, before the launch of Year 4 of the Rainbow Six Siege, Ubisoft announced the necessary household for the many versions of the game. This new consolidation reduces the average cost of the game and eliminates the version we all tell our friends not to buy – the Starter Edition.
This is done as follows:
- Mostly, Standard Version of Siege, which comes with the 20 base operators (moreover, below), there is a constant price cut of up to 20 dollars.
- Mostly, luxury edition adds for the eight operators a total of $ 30 (cheaper than buying operators separately).
- Mostly, Golden Edition ($ 60) is basically a Deluxe edition, which also includes Year 4, which unlocks the latest players when released.
- Mostly, Latest Edition ($ 100) comes with all 44 players in the game, as well as last year 4.
Ubi also reduces the prices of DLC operators as they become older by introducing a scaling system. Details will be revealed later this week at Six Invitational. This is a much better setup than what we had a year ago, but there is a significant regression that makes no sense to me.
Last year, Ubi made 20 Siege Base Operators for free to owners of all versions except Starter Edition. This is a great way to get the game and have a handy set of characters to choose from. The new versions are back and reintroduced the renowned costs for the new operating systems Siege had released in 2015.
Now every new operator will cost 500, 1,000, 1,500 or 2,000 advertisements depending on how many of you are already unlocked. This is not a huge amount of currency during the game. Obtaining enough prominence for a new hero will take between 4 and 10 coincidences. However, it is strange to see that Ubi is giving up on a decision that makes everyone happy. When something was free, it is difficult to justify suddenly striking the price again. The only bright spot here is that the owners of Starter Edition will get this cheap unlock system.
Siege's releases are still complicated and confusing, but this is a fairer set of three-year game prizes. It is especially good to see that the terribly rated novice edition is out of circulation and gives owners a better way to unlock the list. I see no reason to take the more expensive versions before I know you like the game. The total price is the same if you decide to buy a season ticket or DLC operators later.
To coincide with the free weekend of the game, Ubi has dropped a heavy sale of all siege. So, if you want to dip your fingers in one of the premium versions, which has eight more operators in the beginning, the Deluxe Edition is only $ 12.
