Battle Pass Coming To Rainbow Six: Siege

Battle Pass Coming To Rainbow Six: Siege

In a move that seemed almost inevitable in 2019, Rainbow Six Siege is finally jumping on the battle pass train. The battle pass will give players a new progression track to unlock cosmetics, renown boosters, and new operator lore.

You Have To Ask Yourself One Question…

Siege’s battle pass is rolling out in two phases, starting with a free, 7-day pass in Ember Rise named “Call Me Harry.” It sounds like a testing ground for Ubisoft as it prepares for its “full-fledged” battle pass premiering in Season 4 later this year.

More Play, More Rewards

“Our intentions behind it is to reward players more than ever playing our game, and also to provide a progression they can work through whenever they’re playing.” said presentation director Alexander Karpazis in an announcement video.

Kanal Has Had A Rework

One Free Tier, One Premium Tier

Unlike existing battle passes that require players to complete specific challenges to proceed, it seems like Siege’s pass will only judge progression by how much you play. Every match, you build up “Battle Points” that get you closer to the next tier.

Cosmetics are always a welcome edition as they can be cool or fun. I must admit, though, I’m more intrigued by the addition of new in-lore stories with Siege’s operators. I miss the operator/gadget reveal videos that all of the original ops had and I was a little disappointed that none of the new operators got anything like that. Perhaps this new in-lore system will give us some backstory to the characters in a similar fashion to Overwatch.

“The Battle Pass is a great opportunity for us to develop our universe.”

Karpazis promised that they’d have much more to share at the next season reveal, and “much, much” more to say at the Six Invitational 2020.

Today, Ubisoft also blew the lid on Operation Ember Rise, which brings two new operators and a beautiful rework of Kanal.
