Player number 25 million joined the fray in Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege, Ubisoft announced today, and was almost certainly immediately killed by another gamer.
The sales milestone coincides with the release of Operation White Noise today on all of the game’s platforms. The tactical shooter title saw its second anniversary December 1. Buying a $30 Year 2 pass before December 12 will grant players early access to the game’s new operators: Dokkaebi, Vigil and Zofia, each of whom comes with his/her own signature weapons. Year 2 also includes the Mok Myeok Tower map, a high-rise in South Korea. (It requires the original $40 base game to play.)
Ubisoft Montreal has already said, in the least suspenseful announcement ever, that the game will see a Year 3.
“Player investment has been core to the success of the game with longevity being always very important to us. As the game progressed, we continued to develop it with the community in mind,” said the game’s brand director, Alexandre Remy, in a company statement. “We’re thrilled to see that the community has embraced the game, brought along their friends, and really pushed our understanding of what’s possible with what we’ve created.”
Rainbow Six Siege was the first in the Rainbow Six series to offer players the chance to truly fortify their positions with things like traps, reinforcements and mines, and then to allow other players to destroy the environment to get around them. An almost exclusively multiplayer game, it’s picked up speed as a result of esports competitions (in partnership with ESL) and downloadable content that actually added, well, content to the game.
Here’s the launch trailer:
