Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege moves into Operation Shifting Tides – the fourth, and last season, of Year 4 this December. On these lines, Ubisoft announced the new Indian pricing of Rs. 499 for the digital PC version of the Rainbow Six Siege. Operation Shifting Tides also saw the debut of the Indian Attacker Kali and Kenyan Defender Wamai. Both Kali and Wamai can be unlocked for free, through in-game progression or purchased immediately via the use of R6 in-game.
“Rainbow Six Siege has always been extremely popular in India. We know our existing fans will love the new Indian operator Kali, but we also wanted to ensure that for new players who have maybe tried the game during a free weekend or at numerous gaming events, now have a very affordable entry to this great game with the new Indian edition on PC”, said Darren Bowen, Ubisoft General Manager, Middle East and Export Territories.
With over 50 million players registered worldwide, Rainbow Six Siege continues to expand, proving extremely popular in both casual competitive and professional esports scenes in India, both offline and online.
“We have witnessed the excitement that major tournaments such as the recent Pro League Finals in Japan bring to our Rainbow Six Siege fans locally, and we are delighted that we can now offer our community in India its own national tournament through our partnership with ESL India. The response from the community has been fantastic with over 140 teams signing-up, and we are certain the offline Finals at Indiajoy will provide the exciting spectacle that our fan’s passion deserves” Said François-Xavier Dénièle, Esports Director at Ubisoft EMEA.
The finals of the Rainbow Six Siege India series tournament co-organised by Ubisoft and ESL India have started today and will end tomorrow at the Indiajoy Exposition in Hyderabad. More than 140 teams have entered the online qualifiers with 4 teams progressing to contest for the Rs. Two Lakh prize pool and the title of Rainbow Six Siege India Series Champions.
