Rainbow Six Siege Sixth Guardian Program
The launch of the Sixth Guardian Program was announced today by Ubisoft which is a new series of charity bundles in Rainbow Six Siege. Starting in Year 5 Season 4, R6 will feature a special charity bundle, with new bundles coming in future Seasons to support different non-profit organizations.
The first of many see Ubisoft partnering with The AbleGamers Charity, a U.S.-based non-profit organization that aims to support players with disabilities by providing gamers with the tools they need to enjoy their playing experience and by promoting inclusion in the video game industry. The bundle will come with a uniform, weapon skin, charm, and headgear with 100% of net proceeds being donated to The AbleGamers Charity.
“We decided to launch the Sixth Guardian because we recognized an opportunity to mobilize the Rainbow Six Siege community around important issues,” said Karen Lee, Lead Community Developer for the game and creator of the Sixth Guardian Program. “Our players are so passionate, and we wanted to give them an easy, effective way to support incredible organizations, like AbleGamers.”
“AbleGamers is honoured to partner with Ubisoft to support players with disabilities with this amazing Sixth Guardian bundle,” said Steve Spohn, AbleGamers Director of Peer Support. “With more than 46 million players with disabilities in America alone and even more worldwide, we couldn’t be more thrilled to have the ranks of the Rainbow Six community joining our quest to combat social isolation and improve the quality of life for people with disabilities by providing the equipment and knowledge they need to play in the virtual worlds we love so much.”
The Rainbow Six Siege Sixth Guardian Program bundle is available for purchase at beginning of Year 5 Season 4. For more on Rainbow Six Siege, check out our previous coverage.
