Even though its launch was extremely shaky, Rainbow Six Siege ended up being a great deal of fun, so much so that its still being heavily played despite numerous other 'big' shooters coming and going. And given its success so far, it shouldn't come as any surprise to hear that Ubisoft will be continuing with the content flow into 2017 as well.
What might come as a surprise, however, is that Ubisoft has already started selling the pre-orders for the Year 2 Season Pass. While that's a bit ridiculous given that we don't even have the release date for the first content pack just yet, it does bring with it one upside - a list of planned Operators and cosmetics for 2017. Here it is:
YEAR 2 OPERATORS AND BONUS DLC:
• 8 new Year 2 operators across 4 seasons
• 8 exclusive headgear customizations
• 8 exclusive uniform customizations
• R6 Carbon charm
• 600 R6 Credits to purchase in-game content
If you decide to purchase the Year 2 Season Pass before February 7th, before any of the content has even been released, you'll get the fancy Obsidian Weapon Skin to toy around with. And as an added little bonus, you will get 600 R6 Credits if you also own the Year 1 Season Pass. All of this new content aside, the Season Pass also brings with it one year of VIP membership, which basically means early access to new Operators, as well as a couple of minor in-game benefits.
Whether all of this is worth the €30 asking price, that I'll leave for you to decide, but the good news is that you can always purchase these new Operators via the in-game store. It will take you quite a while in order to gather the necessary currency, but at least there is a way to grab your favorites without cracking open the wallet, which I'm sure you'll agree is a pretty damn good compromise given how much content is pouring in.
