'Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege' DLC: 3 more DLCs to be released this year
"Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege" will have at least three more game expansions planned to be released anytime this year, game developer Ubisoft has recently confirmed.
"Our vision was not a game that you'd play through and 'beat,' but something you'd regularly come back to. In order to do that, we'll be actively supporting 'Rainbow Six Siege' with gameplay balancing and tweaks (plus detailed patch notes), events and competitions, and four major content releases with no paywall on gameplay content," Ubisoft announced.
The developer's road map for the upcoming game will see the release of the downloadable contents (DLCs) through the different seasons. Winter saw the launch of the Canada-themed "Operation Black Ice," which happened in January.
The next DLC will sport a U.S.A. theme and is expected to come out by the second quarter of the year. Avid gamers will again have another DLC by the third quarter, and it will be Brazil-themed. The setting for the final DLC will be in Japan, and it is likely that the release will coincide with the holidays.
Ubisoft is still mum, though, about the upcoming U.S.-based "Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege" DLC, which is rumored to arrive in April. However, basing on the "Operation Black Ice" DLC, Ubisoft is likely to introduce a new map, operators, weapon skins, and gameplay elements.
Meanwhile, Ubisoft Japan teased gamers with a new Japanese operator armed with a new assault rifle that will be added to the Japan-themed DLC. The teaser came to Twitter early in February.
The DLCs will be available to players for free, but players who avail of the Season Pass will be granted one week early access to the game's new content. Exclusive skins, R6 Credits, more challenges, and other VIP features will also be given to Season Pass players.
"Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege" is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
