Rainbow Six Siege (PC, PS4, Xbox One) Post-Launch Plan Announcement - Screenshot 1

Ubisoft has outlined their post-launch content plans for Rainbow Six Siege. In addition to regular balancing and tweaks, the development will be holding events and competitions. Four free content expansions are also in the works, with the seasonal releases each including a map, two operators, primary and secondary weapons, and a gadget. The new operators, along with tiered weapon skins, will have to be unlocked with real money via R6 Credits ($4.99 for 600) or with Renown earned during play; pretty much everything earns the player Renown, from accomplishing Daily Challenges to watching tutorials, though team killing will remove some. It will take 600 R6 Credits or 25,000 Renown to unlock operators, which equates to approximately 25 hours of gameplay. New game modes will also be added during the year.
