Ubisoft has announced the launch of the Sixth Guardian Program, which is a series of charity bundles. To start it off, Ubisoft has partnered up with The AbleGamers Charity. The bundle will include unique in-game items and will give players a chance to support and donate to "great causes and non-profit organizations."
This initiative will start with Year 5 Season 4, and Rainbow Six Siege players can purchase a uniform, weapon skin, charm, and headgear that will feature the orange, white, and grey AbleGamers branding. 100% of the net proceeds (with a minimum of $6 USD per bundle sold) will be donated to the organization. The bundle will be available on the PC, PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S via the Rainbow Six Siege in-game store and the Ubisoft online store.
“AbleGamers is honored to partner with Ubisoft to support players with disabilities with this amazing Sixth Guardian bundle,” said Steve Spohn, AbleGamers COO and Director of Peer Support. “With more than 46 million players with disabilities in America alone and even more worldwide, we couldn’t be more thrilled to have the ranks of the Rainbow Six community joining our quest to combat social isolation and improve the quality of life for people with disabilities. By providing the equipment and knowledge they need to play in the virtual worlds we love so much, doors open up that simply weren’t there before.”
What is AbleGamers?
AbleGamers is an organization that works to try and bringing inclusion and improved quality of life to people with disabilities through video games. While AbleGamers believes that "there is no "cookie-cutter" way of getting back into the game", they do try to customize and use technologies such as mouth controllers, eye gaze, and controllers such as the Xbox Adaptive Controller to help everyone play video games.
