Ubisoft reverses Rainbow Six Siege price hike after backlash from angry fans

Ubisoft reverses Rainbow Six Siege price hike after backlash from angry fans”

After player complaints, Ubisoft has backed away from earlier plans to essentially increase the price of Rainbow Six Siege " s mid-tier edition by replacing the $40 "standard edition" with a $60 "advanced edition'. At the time, this didn't seem like a good deal, as the Advanced Edition was $20 more expensive and only offered in-game currency and some cosmetic loot boxes in return. Outbreak Packs are only purchasable with cash, and current players have expressed anger over new players being given ten extra Packs when they have spent upward of $100-150 in-game since its 2015 release. Ubisoft was also going to jack up the price of the Gold and Complete editions from $69.99 to $89.99 and $89.99 to $129.99 respectively. This makes gamers trying to get their friends into the game even more frustrated. The developer announced that any player that plays an online match between now and March 6 will receive a free Ash Sidewinder Elite skin once Siege's year three content launches.

Moreover, the Standard Edition will not be getting the price hike so the price will remain the same.

"We recognise that this has been a point of frustration for new players, as well as existing players bringing their friends into the game, and have been working on how to make this process more fluid", the post read. In the statement, Ubisoft says, "Following yesterday's announcement, we have seen the frustration from our current players rise to the top of the discussion".

When Ubisoft announced more concrete information on the changes to Rainbow Six and it's pricing structure we'll be sure to let you know.

Players from Evil Geniuses (USA), Team Liquid (Brazil) and Supremacy (France), as well as shoutcasters KiXSTAr and Meligeni, go over the specificities of Rainbow Six: Siege throughout this series of four episodes filmed during the Rainbow Six Pro League Season 3 Finals in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
