Ubisoft has detailed the second year of content for Rainbow Six Siege that they confirmed a few weeks ago. From February 2017 to February 2018, Rainbow Six Siege will get eight new operators, new weapons, more cosmetic items, seasonal events, a full year of the Pro League, and four free maps that take place in Spain, Hong Kong, Poland, and South Korea.
There are multiple ways to get the Year 2 content. Current players can either buy the Year 2 Season Pass for $ 29.99 and get everything up front or earn it all via in-game credits. New players can buy the Complete Edition that comes with the base game, the Year 2 Season Pass, and the operators from the first season pass. The Complete Edition is available now on PC for $ 99.99 and will come to the Xbox One on December 6 and the PS4 at a later unannounced date.
Players can also buy the Year 2 Gold Edition now on PS4 and December 6 on PC and Xbox One for $ 79.99, which comes with the base game and the Year 2 content as it releases. Year 2 Season Pass owners get VIP status that yields early access for all eight operators, a 10-percent discount at the in-game shop, a 5-percent Renown boost, and two extra daily challenges.
Ubisoft is also phasing out the Year 1 Season Pass soon and rolling out the Legacy Operator Bundle. The Legacy Operator Bundle unlocks the operators from the first season and will be available in the in-game shop for 2400 credits.
Ubisoft will give more information on Year 2 at the Six Invitational, which takes place on February 3-5. For a more detailed rundown of Year 2's content, check out Ubisoft's post here.

The Pro League and steady flow of free and paid content are great ways to breathe life into a game and keep its community entertained. This approach lets games live for long periods of time and is a key reason why some competitive games have such long tails.
