As a new Rainbow Six Siege update lands today on PS4, Xbox One and PC, a new Rainbow Six Siege Advanced Edition has been listed on Amazon today for PlayStation 4.

Though Ubisoft hasn't officially announced a new packaged version of its popular shooter, Amazon has some details.

According to the product listing, the Rainbow Six Advanced Edition will include:

  • The Original Rainbow Six Siege game
  • 10 outbreak collection packs with rare bonus content
  • 600 Rainbow Six credits

The Rainbow Six Siege credits can be used to unlock premium content.

It's interesting to see in the listing that the Rainbow Six Siege community apparently boasts 25 million active players. For a game that was released in 2015 that's mighty impressive!

According to the listing, the Rainbow Six Siege Advanced Edition will be release on February 13, 2018.

This is also listed at Mighty Ape in New Zealand.

The news coincides with the release of a major new update for Rainbow Six Siege. The servers are down today to make way for Operation White Noise, in which Ubisoft is making a series of adjustments to operators. The Rainbow Six Siege servers will be down from around 2pm GMT, and the following patch notes confirm the changes.
