Operation Black Ice adds an entirely new map, two new operators and much more to the game, as part of Ubisoft's ongoing commitment to providing free updates.
Rainbow Six Siege also has a season pass, but unlike other certain other first-person shooters, Ubisoft keeps maps as free DLC to prevent splitting the community based on those who purchased content and those who didn't. Free maps and other content are supported by micro-payments, which allow you to unlock content such as guns and operators more rapidly. Thankfully, all content can be unlocked just by playing as well.
"As part of the ongoing commitment to provide new content on a regular basis for Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege, the Operation Black Ice content pack includes the new Yacht map, two new operators, Frost and Buck, from the elite Canadian special operations JTF 2 force, and new weapon skins. Additionally, the Spectator Camera feature will be 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."
In our review, Matt Brown praised Rainbow Six Siege's tense atmosphere and polished gunplay, and some of his concerns about server issues have since been repaired in updates.
Rainbow Six Siege is available now for Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
