Back in June Ubisoft released a Rainbow Six Siege Starter Edition for PC that was only available for a limited time. And now it's back! Although, as a Uplay exclusive. For $19.95 the Starter Edition nets you access to four operators plus all of the in-game maps, modes, and other content.
Same as last time, here's what's included.
The Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege Starter Edition provides full access to the game and instantly unlocks up to four operators. With the Starter Edition, new players receive access to all the content available in Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege including PvP, Terrorist Hunt (PvE) and Situations (single-player) content; Bomb, Secure Area and Hostage modes; all launch and post-launch operators; the 11 original maps and free post-launch maps; all weapons and attachments; full progression without any level cap and matchmaking on the same servers.
With the only real difference being a separate progression path to unlock additional operators. And no fancy skins. For all the Season Pass stuff you'll probably want to wait for the Gold Edition which is out October 6.
