In a move that seems inevitable this 2019, it seems like Rainbow Six Siege is finally falling in line with its first-person shooter competitors by introducing a Battle Pass system.
Similar to other games, Rainbow Six Siege's battle pass will give players a new progression track to unlock cosmetics, renown boosters, and new operator lore.
Siege's battle pass will be released in two phases. The mini-pass will be a seven-day event called "Call Me Harry" and will include 7 tiers. It seems like the seven-day event is a testing ground for Ubisoft as it prepares for its "full-pledged" battle pass premiering in Season 4 this year.
Alexander Karpazis said in an announcement video. "Our intentions behind it is to reward players more than ever playing our game, and also to provide a progression they can work through whenever they're playing."
Along with Operation Ember Rise, the Battle Pass will also feature a narrative element, with Harry narrating and telling the stories of himself and Rainbow operators.
Ember Rise also adds:
All Ember Rise content will be playable for the PC version's test servers starting August 19, 2019.
