As part of the ongoing commitment to provide new content for Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege on a regular basis, the Operation Black Ice content pack includes the new yacht map, two brand new operators, Frost and Buck, from the Elite Canadian special operations JTF 2 force, and new weapon skins. The Spectator Camera feature will also become available online for all platforms in custom games.
Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege post launch philosophy is to avoid any split in the community, consequently all gameplay elements will be available with no additional costs. Maps and modes will be free and available immediately for everyone. New operators and most weapon skins can be unlocked with earned currency, called Renown, or with R6 Credits.
Season Pass holders will instantly receive the new JTF 2 operators and non-Season Pass owners will be able to unlock them using Renown in-game currency or R6 Credits starting on February 9th.
