Ubisoft recently released news on Year Two DLC for Rainbow Six Siege. It was revealed that the game will be receiving Alpha Packs that serve as a free loot crate system for Ubisoft’s tactical e-sports title. Players will get a chance to receive one of these Alpha Packs after finishing every game, win or lose.
Winning matches will gain more momentum for getting the Alpha Packs than losing a game will. By not abandoning games, the players will increase their chances for gaining the pack. Once a player wins one of these loot packs which gives random prizes, the chances will then be reset. Alpha Packs can also be bought with in-game Renown. The players will not be spending real cash when they gamble for prizes.
Ubisoft is also releasing a few other updates. A new user interface system will allow players to navigate the menus and assign weapon load-outs as the game searches for matches. It was also confirmed that there are six invitational events which is set to take place in 2018.
The second year of Rainbow Six Siege will be due to start on Feb. 7 with two new Spanish operators and a coastal map. The new attacking operator has footprint tracking technology which makes him a great counter for roamers. The defending operator can put one-way bulletproof glass panel onto walls to keep the defensive team out.
Currently, there are no news on what operators will represent Poland, Hong Kong and South Korea. This means that at least eight new operators will be included in the roster of future tournaments as reported by GameRant.
Rainbow Six is also getting a slight tweak in its new three league system. The Pro League is still at the very top, the Challenger is the next and the GO4 League at the bottom which designed for community level competition. Rainbow Six Siege has grown to be one of the best competitive shooting game on PC. It is expected to be better in 2017 with Ubisoft’s plans for Year Two of the game as published by PCGames.
