There’s a big Rainbow Six Siege Year 1 operator price drop incoming, and though it’s a temporary one you’ll have a very long time to take advantage of the discounts. The operators will be 30% off starting tomorrow, and that discount is going to last all the way until 2019.
If you’re buying with Renown, the price will drop from 25,000 to 15,000. For real-money purchases, the cost will decrease from 600 R6 Credits to 360 R6 Credits. The price decrease goes live on September 25, and will end on March 4, 2019. So if you’ve got your eye on Frost, Buck, Valkyrie, Blackbeard, Capitao, Caveira, Hibana, or Echo be sure to act fast – you’ve only got half a year to get the deal.
On Twitter, Ubisoft says that this “is a temporary discount because the value of the operators still remains the same.” It’s also strictly applied to Year 1, as there are no plans “for now” to discount Year 2 ops. You’ll also see a discount on the full Year 1 operator pack, and you’ll be able to take advantage of the savings even if you’ve picked up the Starter Edition.
There’s plenty more news for Siege. Pro League skins hit for Vigil and company last week, and based on some early leaks it looks like we’re getting some kind of Halloween event soon. You’ll certainly have plenty to keep you occupied while grinding out the Renown to take advantage of all these sales.
