Rainbow Six Siege Adds “Esports Packs” Obtainable as Twitch Drops
With the Six Invitational 2021 event right around the corner, Ubisoft has unveiled its plans for Rainbow Six Siege’s biggest annual competition. Due to the ongoing pandemic, a lot of events and competitions from the previous year had to be shifted online. However, this year’s Six Invitational will be the first tournament in which cross-regional players will compete in a LAN setting. As always, Ubisoft has a lot planned for the average player in the form of new Siege Esports Packs and other Twitch drops.
A new entry in Rainbow Six Siege’s line of premium collection packs, the Siege Esports Packs will contain themed in-game cosmetics. The packs can only be obtained by clocking in watch time on the official Twitch channel in the weeks leading up to the event. In addition, a Six Invitational-themed VIP bundle for Tachanka will be obtainable in a similar fashion. Other notable rewards include charms spread across the various phases.
Phase one from January 21st – 31st will contain a total of four charm rewards, each of which can be obtained by watching three hours of the official stream.
Phase two from February 1st – 16th will introduce another four charms as well as the Siege Esports Packs. One pack will be given for every eight hours watched on eligible streams.
Phase three from February 9th – 1th & February 17th – 20th adds the Six Invitational charms and continues the Esports Pack drops.
Phase four is one-day long on February 21st during which the grand finals will take place. During this phase, watching eligible streams will give you a chance at acquiring the S.I. 2021 VIP charm, the Tachanka S.I. VIP Bundle, and get one Esport pack every two and half hours.
Before watching the stream, make sure you are eligible for the drops by linking your Twitch account to your Ubisoft account here. After that, all you need to do is watch the streams that have drops enabled and the rewards will automatically be added to your in-game account.
