Ubisoft has debuted its first Battle Pass for Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege, now available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. Pioneered by Fortnite’s free-to-play battle royale, later adopted by other top shooters, the tiered progression model provides the opportunity to secure exclusive limited-time rewards. The first Battle Pass, dubbed “Call Me Harry,” is available for free to all Rainbow Six Siege players, lasting seven days.
Rainbow Six Siege’s first Battle Pass packs 7-tiers to progress, achievable via “Battle Points,” earned by completing multiplayer matches. The number of games played, and your performance, play crucial roles in rewarded points, propelling you to four cosmetic charms. Included are the “Harry’s Work,” “Harry’s Life,” “Harry’s Project,” and “Harry Chibi” universal weapon charms.
While light on content, the first Battle Pass serves as a trial for the Year 4 Season 4 update, set to feature a “full-fledged” experience, packing free and premium tiers. The second iteration will expand available content, further pushing monetization. The optional premium track will cost a fixed price, unlocking exclusive milestones, and earnings.
The Rainbow Six Siege Battle Pass is now available in-game, presented via a new main menu icon. Future games over the coming week all contribute to Battle Pass progression, before concluding on October 22.
