Rainbow Six Siege 'Sunsplash Collection' debuts new paid loot boxes

Ubisoft has unveiled a new collection of limited-time cosmetics on its way to Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege. Building on the sizable library of skins for its hit tactical shooter, the "Sunsplash Collection" debuts 12 vibrant summer-themed items. While first leaked back in May, the collection has made its surprise arrival and is now live across all platforms.

The Sunsplash Collection is comprised of three uniforms, three headgears, three weapon skins, and three universal weapon charms. These skins are restricted to a small subset of Operators, comprised of IQ, Dokkaebi, Lesion, and Vigil. Among its highlights is a diving suit for Dokkaebi, slick shades for Vigil, and various tropical pattern skins. Each pack grants one randomized item, meaning you may need multiple to get the item you want.

Sunsplash packs are only obtainable using R6 Credits – the game's premium currency purchased using real-world money. While players will be granted two free packs upon logging in, further packs are priced at 300 R6 Credits each, meaning the full set roughly equates to $25. Rainbow Six Siege Year 3 Pass holders will also receive a 10 percent discount, dropping the price to 270 R6 credits.

To access the new Sunsplash Collection yourself, simply log into Rainbow Six Siege to be granted with an on-screen notification. The Sunsplash Collection event is slated to run for two weeks, until July 17, 2018, when packs will no longer be available.
