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

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.
