As the tactical team-based shooter Rainbow Six Siege moves into its second year of content updates, developer Ubisoft have brought back the 15 dollar Starter Edition that serves as a cheap way to get introduced to Rainbow Six Siege on the PC. This starter pack features everything you need to get a lay of the land before you commit to buying the full-priced version—which also goes on sale regularly—and this time around this version of the game won't disappear after a certain amount of time so you can grab it whenever you want.

The Starter Edition gets you two randomly chosen operators from a pool of six: Ash, Rook, Fuze, Mute, Sledge, and Smoke. This edition also includes 600 R6 credits you can use to buy two additional operators or new customization items for operators you already have. While you're technically able to unlock all the other content in the game, doing so in the Starter Edition by just playing the game will take you a very long time since everything costs more renown (a form of in-game currency you collect by playing the game normally).

The Starter Edition also allows you to play in PvP matches, take part in the PvE mode Terrorist Hunt, and allows you to play a host of single-player Situations. You can also play Rainbow Six Siege's Bomb, Secure Area, and Hostage modes across 11 original maps set all around the world with the Starter Edition, as well as play all the free post-release content that has come out for the game.

If you've been waiting for the perfect opportunity to give Rainbow Six Siege a go, you can go to the Uplay Store to purchase this edition of the game.

What do you think of the Starter Edition? Are you going to give Rainbow Six Siege a go now that the cheaper edition has made its permanent return to Ubisoft's store?
