Ubisoft has announced the new Sixth Guardian Program, which aims to directly support charity groups through an in-game bundle in Rainbow Six Siege.
The 1st edition of the Sixth Guardian bundle includes cosmetic items for Doc, and all proceeds (with a minimum of $6 per bundle sold) from this bundle will directly go towards The AbleGamers Charity, whose objective is to combat social isolation and improve the quality of life for people with disabilities.
The AbleGamers charity, founded in 2004, has been helping players with disabilities in playing video games through the use of customized equipment like adaptive controllers, ensuring no one feels left out.
“AbleGamers is honored to partner with Ubisoft to support players with disabilities,“ said Steve Spohn in a press release, AbleGamers’ director of peer support. “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 Doc Sixth Guardian Bundle contains a headgear, uniform, weapon skin, and a weapon charm for the healer Operator Doc, all tailored in collaboration with AbleGamers and themed around their white and orange logo.
“The community team loves to find ways to engage our players and rally them together,” added Karen Lee, lead community developer for Rainbow Six Siege and creator of the Sixth Guardian program. “We’ve seen in the past when we’ve held charity show matches or donated money to causes relevant to our community that they want to get involved and give back.”
The Doc Sixth Guardian bundle will launch alongside (Y5S4) Operation Neon Dawn and will be available throughout the whole season. It will cost players 1200 R6 Credits and can be brought from the in-game store.
