What you need to know

  • Ubisoft has launched its latest Elite skin set in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege, bringing a punk theme to Polish defender Ela.
  • The premium Elite set costs 1,800 R6 Credits, or 1,620 R6 Credits with the Year 4 Pass discount, translating to around $15.

Updated December 12, 2019: Ubisoft UK has confirmed the Ela Elite set launches today, now rolling out across in-game stores.

Ubisoft soon appears to be dropping its next Elite set in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege, with a new launch trailer surfacing on official Xbox and PlayStation YouTube channels, prior a formal unveiling. The premium bundle for the Polish defender has extensively leaked in past months, promising skins with a punk twist, alongside standard-fare accompanying cosmetics. It now appears to primed to roll out, with premature promotional videos live ahead of in-game availability.

The Elite set brings the "Huk Sztuk" uniform, influenced by her time as an art student, kitted with a leather jacket, torn jeans, and high top trainers. That's accompanied by a new look for Grzmot Mines, also decorating Scorpion EVO 3 A1, FO-12, and RG15. A paint-splattered victory animation, character card, and universal Ela Chibi charm wrap the set. It appears Ubisoft mistakenly scheduled videos early among partners, with videos claiming availability now.

Ubisoft hasn't formally discussed Ela Elite set availability, although premature trailers could mean a launch later this week. Like past releases, the premium bundle will be purchasable exclusively with the game's paid currency, R6 Credits. That's 1,800 R6 Credits, or 1,620 R6 Credits with the Year 4 Pass discount, setting players back around $15.

In the meantime, Rainbow Six Siege recently received its Operation Shifting Tides update, introducing Kali and Wamai, among the best DLC Operators yet.
