Ubisoft announced today the launch of the Sixth Guardian Program, a new series of charity bundles in Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six® Siege. The special bundle, which includes unique in-game items, gives players the opportunity to support and donate to great causes and non-profit organizations. To kick-off the initiative, Ubisoft is partnering with The AbleGamers Charity.
Beginning at the launch of Year 5 Season 4, Rainbow Six Siege players will be able to purchase a bundle that includes a uniform, weapon skin, charm, and headgear that features the signature orange, white, and grey AbleGamers branding. 100% of net proceeds, with a minimum of $6 USD per bundle sold, will be donated to the organization. The charity bundle is available on Windows PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X and Series S via the Rainbow Six Siege in-game store and the Ubisoft online store.
“AbleGamers is honored to partner with Ubisoft to support players with disabilities with this amazing Sixth Guardian bundle,” said Steve Spohn, AbleGamers COO and 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, doors open up that simply weren’t there before.”
The AbleGamers Charity is an organization dedicated to bringing inclusion and improved quality of life to people with disabilities through the power of video games. The charity uses a combination of assistive technologies such as mouth controllers, eye gaze, and specially customized controllers like the Xbox Adaptive Controller in order to find a way for anyone to play video games, no matter their disability. AbleGamers believes there is no “cookie-cutter” way to help get people back in the game — engineers take time with each individual to identify their specific needs and wants, along with their unique abilities and challenges, to determine the exact equipment required.
Recipients never pay a penny for help from AbleGamers — all services are covered by the generous donors that keep the charity thriving and able to help those in need.
