Rainbow Six: Siege Collector's Edition Detailed



Ubisoft has announced a Rainbow Six: Siege Collector's Edition containing a mixture of physical and digital goodies in addition to the actual game. Here's the deal...

Available from Ubisoft's Uplay store for Xbox One and PlayStation 4, the Collector's Edition will feature a cap, a backpack and a compass carabiner bottle opener, among other bits and bobs. A carabiner is the little metal linky thing rope-climbers (and rappelling badasses) use.

It would appear that this specific collector's edition is exclusive to the US and will cost $150.

All versions of the game come with guaranteed beta access. Rainbow Six: Siege is out on October 13th, 2015.

RAINBOW SIX: SIEGE COLLECTOR'S EDITION

Rainbow Six: Siege Standard Edition
Season Pass
Steelbox -- Designed exclusively for the Collector’s Edition
CTU Operators Hat -- Flat-brim snapback hat
Compass Carabiner -- Black and gray carabiner with a compass and bottle opener
Operator Backpack -- Military-style backpack with a padded laptop pocket. Comes with seven Operator badges that attach to the sides of the backpack with Velcro.
Art of the Siege Tactical Guide -- Exclusive 120-page guide

Rainbow Six: Siege Slips Past Black Friday Into December

Rainbow Six: Siege is still coming this year, but it will miss the biggest shopping weekend of the holiday season. The title was supposed to be out on October 13, but has slipped nearly two months.

Getting the game in people’s hands and listening to what they have to say helps us understand how we can improve their experience, and we’d like to thank everyone who’s taken part in the process so far,” Ubisoft says. “With that in mind, we’ve decided to push the release date of Rainbow Six Siege to December 1, 2015 for all regions

Re: RAINBOW SIX: Siege

Same day as Just Cause 3 will likely cause me to delay purchase of this until further down the road. The continual delays kill my excitement for this and makes it less and less of a can't wait title.

Re: RAINBOW SIX: Siege

I'm interested, but will hold judgement until the beta in September. Especially now that it is the same day as Xenoblade Chronicles & Just Cause 3.

Re: RAINBOW SIX: Siege

It's going to be interesting how this will do now that it comes "After" COD: Black Ops III and Star Wars Battlefront...both highly anticipated and coming out in November. And as Gator mentioned, Just Cause 3 hits about the same time

Re: RAINBOW SIX: Siege

Bump

This game is out today

Anyone pick it up or are you all broke from Black Friday shopping?

A beta demo was released over the weekend and I downloaded it, but I couldn't figure out how to work it. It kept directing me to sign up for multi-player thing on the game website. So I just deleted it. Very annoying.

Anyways, the footage that I've seen makes this game look cool. Any impressions?

I haven't had proper internet from home in over a year but I am pretty sure by the end of the year that will change and when it does I am 100% getting this game.

Re: RAINBOW SIX: Siege

I pre-ordered with GCU... but I have no idea when I'll get to it. I've yet to touch Tomb Raider and JC3 arrived last night. Hell, I haven't even played a single minute of BO3 single player. I loved, loved, loved Rainbow Six Vegas and this game looks like an improvement on that one in every way.

Re: RAINBOW SIX: Siege

I went ahead and grabbed this on PS4 ahead of the Best Buy sale. Looking forward to doing some terrorist hunts online with my friends and some of you guys. It is my favorite mode. Hell, I would pay a little bit of money if the would upgrade the maps from Vegas 1 and 2 and put them as DLC on here.

Re: RAINBOW SIX: Siege

Seems they programmed this to run at 60 fps online and 30 offline with AI on console.

Re: RAINBOW SIX: Siege

I have a friend at work who was playing Starwars but traded it in for this and said it's Night & Day above it. I'm thinking of doing the BB B2G1F deal and this might be in the mix. What's the latest on the overall gameplay and just how does the SP and co-op part work? And is this more like Battlefield where it's built mainly around the MP (5v5) with SP/co-op just added for the sake of it or is it balanced with all three?

I've yet to play --- but I hope it's like the old days where you actually had to communicate to be successful.

Yes, it is. I played it last night with a non-communicative group and we got our asses kicked.

Re: RAINBOW SIX: Siege

So I fired this up this weekend and discovered there is no SP mode? WTF? Very disappointed as just doing 10 "missions" to learn the lay of the land is cheap as hell. In my one online experience, nobody communicated yet we smoked the other team. This is hardly the R6 I was hoping for.

This is what I was afraid of, I heard there is another one coming soon that will be a more rounded game. This sucks because this is my favorite shooter of all time. I'll wait for a deal since I won't have access to our X1 until Christmas.

Re: RAINBOW SIX: Siege

I have been playing this with friends and using mics. While I am not very good at it, I have been having a pretty good time playing it.

Re: RAINBOW SIX: Siege

I played with some strangers last night and we all had mics. It didn't help. I attribute that mostly to how bad I suck though

Re: RAINBOW SIX: Siege

^^ Yes, don't believe it. You might need to try to enter MP or even the SP training modes a few times, but it will connect. Every time I fire up R6, it says I can't connect to the servers. The game can be fun, but they screwed the pooch with this offering.

Re: RAINBOW SIX: Siege

I'm loving this game so far. It takes a while to get into it, but playing with the right group its a blast. I do have problems sometimes connecting to ubisoft but it usually reconnects after a few seconds.

I have it on xbox one and if anyone wants to add me, my gamertag is maingon360

Re: RAINBOW SIX: Siege

Yeah it worked today I guess it was their servers. I know I can't start multiplayer until I finish scenarios but I was concerned it wasn't connecting at all.
