Rainbow Six Siege Guide

Game Versions for 2019

The first thing that intimidates most gamers is the fact that there are multiple versions of Rainbow Six Siege. With all the BS behind downloadable content and season passes, it’s understandable how people don’t want to waste money on pricey special editions or coins for micro-transactions. As of 2019, there are four versions of Rainbow Six Siege ranging from $20 to $100: Base, Deluxe, Gold, and Ultimate.

Base Game

Price $19.99
Includes Full Game

The base version of Rainbow Six Siege gives players the full game. There are no DLC packs or extra bonuses included. Buy this edition if you’re unsure if you will fully get into the game.

Each of the 20 Legacy Operators (GIGN, SAS, GSG9, SPETSNAZ, FBI) are unlocked with 500, 1000, 1500, or 2000 Renown based on the number of Operators currently unlocked in that CTU. Post Launch Operators (Years 1-4) are unlocked with 25,000 Renown or 600 R6 Credits.

Deluxe Edition

Price $29.99
Includes Full Game, Year 1 Operators

The Deluxe Edition of Rainbow Six Siege is the next version up from the base version. It includes the full game and 8 Operators from Year One: Buck, Frost, Blackbeard, Valkyrie, Capitao, Caveira, Hibana, and Echo. It’s a small boost up from the base edition, and isn’t really necessary when compared to the other three packages.
