Ubisoft Addresses Rainbow Six Siege Price Hike, Ash Sidewinder Elite Skin Is Free

Last week’s  news about Rainbow Six Siege about the Loot Boxes and the price hike really made fans infuriated. Though now the developers of the game have issued a statement regarding this issue. They posted on Reddit that they acknowledge the frustration of their fans and want to make amendments.

First and foremost they are making “Ash Sidewinder Elite Skin” for Rainbow Six Seige free for current players of the game who log into an online match before March 6. That Skin will automatically be added to your inventory when the Season 1 of the 3rd year start.

Moreover, the Standard Edition will not be getting the price hike so the price will remain the same. But Ubisoft will slowly phase out the Standard Edition in favor of the Advanced Edition.

Most of the details are still unclear but the developer will share more in the coming weeks.

At multiple occasions, the Ubisoft team has been recognizing the frustration of their players regarding the Rainbow Six Seige and they do plan to do better in the future.

Since the initial release of Rainbow Six Seige in 2015, the game has reached about 25 million player base which is remarkable.

Rainbow Six Siege is now available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The title is available on Amazon, PlayStation Store, Xbox Live Marketplace Uplay, and other marketplaces.
