This game was released on December 01, 2015 and is no longer available to pre-order. Any incentives that were offered are listed below.
Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege is a tactical shooter by Ubisoft which pits two teams of five against each other in various multiplayer modes. Players can choose from a number of classes – or Operators, as the game calls them – which are divided into defensive and offensive types, and have different skillsets.
Rainbow 6 Siege emphasizes teamwork and features procedural destruction, an important element of the gameplay. Attackers can utilize devices like breach charges or the hammer wielded by the Sledge class to destroy walls and open up new paths to their target, whereas the defending side can use barricades and barbed wire to delay or ambush the enemy.
The game also has single-player as well as co-op modes, including the fan-favorite, wave-based TerroHunt. The enemy this time is a new mysterious organization known as the White Masks.
Pre-order Rainbow Six Siege at any of the participating retailers and you will gain guaranteed access to the closed beta which starts on 9/24/2015 (do not forget to redeem your closed beta access code on Ubisoft’s website). You will also get a Gold Weapon Skins Pack DLC, which, like the name suggests, adds some bling to all in-game weapons.
In addition, GameStop is offering an exclusive 72-hour Renown Boost, granting you a 50% personal bonus as well as a 10% Team Boost. The latter can be stacked up to 95% if all members of the team possess the Boost.
Those looking for a more substantial incentive might consider pre-ordering at Best Buy ($10 in Reward Certificates) or Microsoft Store ($10 Xbox gift card).
The Gold Edition costs $30 more than the standard one, and includes the game itself plus a season pass. Of course, the aforementioned pre-order incentives apply to this edition as well.
