Rainbow Six Siege Optional Monthly Paid Subscription Sparks Community Outrage

The new monthly paid subscription for Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege has sparked an outrage among the game’s community.

Ubisoft recently updated its official website with details regarding a new membership/subscription plan for Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege, which will grant members access to premium content to use in the game. This has led to a major backlash from the game’s community, with people leaving dislikes that are over twice the number of likes received by the game’s Operation New Blood Reveal Panel YouTube video.

The new membership plan for Rainbow Six Siege is roughly equivalent to Fortnite’s Crew, which gives players access to monthly premium content as well as the seasonal battle pass. The game can still be played by those who don’t subscribe. However, an important distinction between the two is that Fortnite is a Free To Play game while Ubisoft’s first-person shooter isn’t.

Reddit users are expressing concern over Ubisoft’s new business model, which now includes a subscription plan on top of the game being a paid release and even having a Battle Pass alongside other monetization avenues including skins, backgrounds, operator images, and attachment skins. On the other hand, there are those who are arguing that all the subscription only offers cosmetics, which ultimately have no bearing on gameplay.

Rainbow Six Siege enthusiasts who subscribe to the new membership plan will receive a monthly drop of premium content, ensuring that their operators are always equipped with the best exclusive gear. Monthly benefits include a time-limited Legendary item (sometimes animated), an Epic operator bundle, full access to the premium Battle Pass, 10x Battle levels, and a Bravo pack. Together, these benefits are said to provide over 4500 credits of value each month.

Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege is available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Windows, and Google Stadia.
